TWICE, Chloe, Meghan Trainor & More Featured in 2023 Amazon Music Original Holiday Songs

The holiday season is around the corner, and to gear up for it, Amazon Music announced on Tuesday (Nov. 7) the roster of artists that will be providing the 2023 edition of its Amazon Music Original holiday songs.

This year, Billboard Women in Music’s Breakthrough Artist winners TWICE will feature on the soundtrack, in addition to contributions from Chloe Bailey, Stephen Sanchez, Jorja Smith, Meghan Trainor and more.

TWICE will deliver a new version of its 2017 song “Heart Shaker,” which appeared on the K-pop group’s Christmas-inspired, first album repackage titled Merry & Happy. Bailey will have two tracks as part of the Amazon Music Originals holiday soundtrack, singing a cover of Otis Redding’s “Merry Christmas Baby” — which will make an appearance in the credits of Candy Cane Lane, Prime Video’s upcoming holiday comedy starring Eddie Murphy and Tracee Ellis Ross, out Dec. 1 — and her take on Darlene Love’s “Winter Wonderland.”

Other music to movie crossovers this year includes Anne-Marie’s “Christmas Without You,” which will be be featured in Your Christmas or Mine 2 when it premieres Dec. 8 on Prime Video. Annalisa will also provide a unique rendition of one of Love’s Christmas tracks with “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” — the song will appear in Elf Me, slated to debut on Prime Video on Nov. 24.

Elsewhere on the tracklist is Meghan Trainor with a cover of “Jingle Bells” and Jorja Smith with English Christmas staple “Stay Another Day.” Multiple countries are also represented in the Amazon Music Originals holiday soundtrack this year, with Walk Off the Earth (Canada), Tokio Hotel (Germany), Niña Pastori (Spain), Sam Fischer (Australia), Camélia Jordana (France) and Banda MS (Mexico) featured on the tracklist.

“With our holiday Amazon Music Original tracks each year, we set out to create unique, special experiences for fans to mark the holidays with Amazon Music.
