Camila Cabello drops a Latin flavored version of the Christmas classic, “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.
The Voice coach previously performed the cover twice last year. Once at the White House for the In Performance at the White House: Spirit of the Season special and for Michael Bublé’s Christmas in the City Holiday show. The track was originally released on Amazon Music but is now available to stream everywhere.
“I’ll Be Home For Christmas” is the former Fifth Harmony member’s second holiday release. In 2021, she duetted with her then-boyfriend Shawn Mendes for a cover of Nat King Cole’s Christmas classic, “The Christmas Song,” proceeds of which went to Feeding America.
The song has been covered many, many times by artists over the years. Crooner Bing Crosby recorded the first version in 1943 in honor of of soldiers stationed overseas during World War II. Camila updates the sound, but also adds Latin horns and guitars. It’s like a Mariachi version of the classic. Listen to it below.
Camila is currently sitting on The Voice coaches panel alongside Gwen Stefani, John Legend and Blake Shelton. The Knockout round concludes with a Top 16 on Monday (Nov 7). The live shows begin on Monday November 14.
