Christmas love songs are a dime a dozen, but Christmas songs about heartbreak are rare, and usually end up being some of our favorites. "Last Christmas" is an iconic holiday heartbreak bop, as is "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" -- the original, not the Kelly Clarkson cover, don't drag me! Now, MNEK's new yuletide tune "Stopped Believing in Santa" joins that legacy.
On the sultry R&B jam, MNEK -- fresh off his spot on the OUT100 -- laments losing a lover and, consequentially, his Christmas spirit. "I stopped believing in Santa when you said goodbye, love," the artist croons, "was watching watching the snow fall when you called to say we were through."
"I just felt like writing a Christmas song and this is what happened," MNEK tells OUT. "It was a really fun challenge and the cool thing about Christmas songs are that their intention is to be timeless. Hopefully I've achieved that."
Pour yourself a glass of eggnog and cozy up to MNEK's "Stopped Believing in Santa" while you peruse Scruff for a Santa of your own.
