“Baby It’s Cold Outside” has its issues, and “All I Want For Christmas” is tired. The best Christmas song is finally on Spotify.

DMX‘s gruff cover of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” has existed as a YouTube favorite since December 2012, when he performed his version of the song on NYC’s Power 105. Now, the cover has been retooled (mainly, it’s been given a backing track) and officially released as a single in Spotify’s holiday-themed Singles series.

The playlist also features covers from Miley Cyrus, Sam Smith, Norah Jones, and Fifth Harmony.
