Just as the holidays is a common time for artists to hop on classic tracks for a remake, Pink Sweat$ seems to have given music lovers a special remake for every season of thanksgiving. “This Christmas” by Pink Sweat$ is a new version of Donny Hathaway’s holiday classic, and it’s just the best way to kick off the holidays.
“This Christmas” is such a thoughtful and amazing remake to get music lovers in the mood of a Pink Christmas. It’s amazing and lovable how Pink Sweat$ gave the track a modest touch-up while retaining the original voice of Donny Hathaway. No unnecessary tune or makeover on the remake; Pink Sweat$ gave room for Donny Hathaway’s iconic vocal to shine through while he holds the verses down with melodic perfection to give a truly magical and outstanding track.
Quotable lyrics from the song;
“PRESENTS AND CARDS ARE HERE
MY WORLD IS FILLED WITH CHEER, AND YOU THIS CHRISTMAS
AND AS I LOOK AROUND YOUR EYES OUTSHINE THE TOWN, THEY DO
The video is another reason why you’d love this track. It’s an animated lyric video showing updates through Sweat$ rose-colored glasses. It’s fun to watch the pink teddy bear stroll through a winter wonderland.
