Swae Lee tried his hand at a festive tune this Christmas.
Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee is coming off a big year, both as part of the aforementioned rap and as a solo artist. Teaming up with French Montana for one of the year's biggest crossover hits, "Unforgettable," was quite the feather in his cap, but he's not about to be pigeonholed into one specific subdivision of the music business. In fact, he gave fans an unexpected treat this holiday season and gifted them with an original Christmas carol.
Standing shirtless with some iced-out bling around his neck, the rapper crooned his way through a special festive tune in a video that he captured on video for those following him on Instagram and Twitter. The lyrics are aimed at a girl he's got his eye on, letting her know that she's definitely on his wish list this year. Working in a ton more Christmas imagery, the result is surprisingly tender. You can check out the full video below.
As one might expect, the Internet was ready and waiting with some instant reaction for Swae Lee and, unsurprisingly, the feedback was nearly all positive. Many were actually wondering when the full studio version is going to be made available. You can check out a sampling of the Twitter response below.
With Chance the Rapper and Jeremih releasing a long-form Christmas-themed collab a short time ago, Swae Lee could be the next popular rapper to put his stamp on a holiday tradition in time for next year's festivities. What did you think about Swae's carol? Let us know in the comments.
