Mariah Carey, son Moroccan Scott Cannon and daughter Monroe Cannon arrive at the premiere of Warner Bros. Pictures' 'The LEGO Batman Movie' at Regency Village Theatre on Feb. 4, 2017 in Westwood, Calif. 

The holiday is coming early this year.

It may not even be Halloween yet, but 'tis the season for new Christmas music. And who better to rep the upcoming holiday than the Queen of Christmas herself?

Mariah Carey is known for singing one of the most iconic Christmas songs of all-time, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” -- and she’s spreading even more holiday cheer with her newly released track, “The Star.” And, it turns out, the mother of two brought her little helpers along for the slay ride this time.

When Carey announced her new song last week, she revealed that her 6-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, would be featured on the track.

In an Instagram post taken of the three in their pajamas, the pop diva wrote, “Hanging with my two best friends, listening to their guest appearance on #TheStar”

Carey’s song shares the name of the film in which it will be featured, the Sony Pictures Animation movie, The Star, inspired by the Christian nativity narrative. The film follows the adventures of a donkey named Bo as he becomes an unlikely hero during the first Christmas.

Fifth Harmony, Pentatonix and Zara Larsson are also featured on the soundtrack.
