Katy Perry releases a music video to accompany her holiday hit
You donâ€™t need any diamonds or sparkles when you have Katy Perryâ€™s â€śCozy Little Christmasâ€ť. The singer-songwriter launched the songâ€™s festive music video and released it digitally on Dec. 2, 2019.Â
Written by Perry, Greg Wells and Ferras Alqaisi, the song was released exclusively on Amazon Music on Nov. 15, 2018 and is now available on all platforms. In comparison to her previous upbeat, holiday song â€śEvery Day is a Holiday,â€ť â€śCozy Little Christmasâ€ť is a softer song with bells and piano playing in the background accompanying her cheerful tone.Â
With lyrics like â€śI don’t need diamonds, no sparkly thingsâ€ť and â€ś’Cause you can’t buy this a-feeling,â€ť Perry expresses how happiness and love cannot be bought. Lyrics like â€śNothing lights my fire or wraps me up, baby, like you doâ€ť and â€śJust want a cozy, a cozy little Christmas here with youâ€ť also show how love can top all and make everything else seem unnecessary. These lyrics contribute perfectly, showing love and joy during the Christmas and holiday seasons. They show how happiness doesnâ€™t stem from materialistic gifts, but rather the gift of love to others.Â
As Mrs. Claus in the music video, Perry shows this love, the kind that is better than any gift, with Santa. The video displays holiday spirit with constant green and red colors but takes place in a more tropical setting as opposed to the frigid snow. The video goes through many scenes, first showing her with Santa in front of a Christmas tree, then relaxing by the pool and then getting massages together. Then with a hair and costume change, Katy is featured in what appears to be an eggnog martini, singing and splashing in the drink, and finally, in a living room dancing with Santa again. This exciting video brings out the more holiday aspect of the song while keeping in tune with the lyrics of love by showing Perry dancing with Santa and enjoying the holidays.Â
With fun visuals and meaningful lyrics about love and happiness during the holiday season, Perry makes â€śCozy Little Christmasâ€ť an instant classic.
