MNEK 'Stopped Believing in Santa' on Original Holiday Track: Listen

Luke Nugent
MNEK

As MNEK gets ready for his 2019 North American Tour, the British singer surprised fans at the last second with an original Christmas song, “Stopped Believing in Santa.”

The new track is a good-bye Christmas breakup bop that will bring holiday comfort for those of us who have split up with our significant other during this wonderful time of the year. Throughout the song, MNEK’s powerful voice perfectly captures heartbreak and a loss of innocence, realizing that his lover is not going to spend Christmas with him.

“There's no mistletoe, I kicked down the tree, 'cause right now that don't mean nothing to me," MNEK sings woefully before the chorus.

Despite the mournful message, the song itself remains relatively upbeat and catchy with sleigh bells ringing throughout the track as MNEK expresses his discontent with the holidays. The juxtaposition between how happy the track is, and the sorrow in MNEK's voice and lyrics make this a complex Christmas track that will bring listeners bittersweet solace in their solitude.
