New Holiday Song on Deck from Nia Sioux and Lela B!

By Andréa Butler

It’s not officially the #holidayszn until Christmas music is playing on repeat everywhere you go. And this year, Nia Sioux and Lela B are comin’ through with their own addition to those festive track lists. Serving us holiday spirit with each and every lyric (like “Come along, come along, come along, forget your wish list. If you give a little joy to another who might need it more), their new song Best Christmas is a modern take on seasonal faves Frosty the Snowman and Jingle Bells, and in true Nia fashion, it also conveys a message of hopefulness, love, and straight up merriment.

“The holidays are my favorite time of year, [and] the world is currently filled with so much negativity, so we wanted to create a holiday song with a positive and upbeat message to our listeners,” Nia tells us in a recent interview. “Spreading the joy of giving through various acts of kindness should be a priority to each and every one of us, which is why we thought this catchy song would also teach a lesson in addition to just being a fun holiday song!”

Giving over everything is the central theme of this release, and the music video — out Dec. 5, conceptualized by Nia and Lela — reps that idea to the fullest, showing montages of the duo’s moments of giving ’round their L.A. way. “We wanted to challenge people to find organizations and people in their communities that they can help or give to during this holidays season,” Nia says. “Although it’s fun to receive gifts around this season, it is important to think of those who are less fortunate and could use a helping hand. It is a gift to have the opportunity to help someone with no expectation of receiving something in return.”

Big. Mood.
