The rappers made a sincere, subdued Christmas track.

Dej Loaf has released a collaboration with Kodak Black titled “All I Want for Christmas.” First of all, it’s not the Mariah Carey cover you’re expecting: The duo resisted festive fanfare to record a laid back, heartfelt rap track about the holidays.

“I thought it would be dope to get Kodak Black on this record so I reached out and he was with it! So we put together something special for you,” Loaf wrote in her SoundCloud description of the song. “This is such a special time of the year. The time when you get to express gratitude and show love. So that’s what we did. I hope y’all enjoy it. Happy Holidays!”

The song’s lyrics are simple and soulful, reminding listeners that love is all around.

“Sometimes I feel like we just live to die/ That’s why I’m so grateful, lord I’m breathing/ I won’t be complaining, and don’t you either/ Eggnog drinking, sleigh bells ringing/ Santa, I wish you could bring back some of my people.”,

“All I Want for Christmas” has a light touch that keeps it from veering into sentimentality. Add it to your holiday playlist if you need a break from the schlocky Christmas canon.
