Add some pop girl magic to your festive playlist this year.
We know grandma just wants to hear the Christmas classics while you’re tucking into turkey at the dinner table, but there’s no harm in sneaking a few modern-day bops from the fiercest women in pop music in music here and there.
Below we’ve rounded up 14 of our favourite modern Christmas songs, including a Destiny’s Child earworm, a stunning Lady Gaga cover, a Kylie track that’s not Santa Baby, and two new 2018 releases from pop sensations Allie X and Miley Cyrus.
There’s even an alternative Mariah Carey choice for when you’ve heard All I Want For Christmas Is You for the 168th time this month. Enjoy!
