Who could forget “A Perfect Christmas,” a non-negotiable song in practically every Christmas-themed playlist? Well, there's a version of the holiday hit by our Pambansang Christmas Icon Jose Mari Chan that's sung by this generation’s OPM faves!

Spotify teamed up with the OPM legend and some of this generation’s biggest local music acts to produce a fresh version of “A Perfect Christmas” for their first Asia-made holiday single. Local bands Ben&Ben, December Avenue, and I Belong To The Zoo, as well as solo artists Moira dela Torre and Julie Anne San Jose made the Christmas song their own and provided us with a fresh twist to the holiday classic.

“When I recorded the track back in the '90s, I never dreamed that it would become the quintessential Christmas song it is today; that it would be listened to year after year and loved by generations. To me, the spirit of Christmas is being able to give and share your love and Christmas isn’t ‘perfect’ without someone special, someone you love,” Jose Mari Chan says of the track.
