“It Was A… (Masked Christmas)” began as an idea when Fallon was recording at Electric Lady Studios in Manhattan in August. “I wanted to write something about how hard it was for everyone last year during the holidays and it will get better,” he said, throwing in some humor about Purell cramming into everything and families. wanted. Laundry Room to go on Zoom because that’s where the best Wi-Fi is. He also enjoyed how fun it is to say “booster,” especially with a Boston accent.

While writing the song with producer Ido Zamyshalani, who is known for his work with Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber, Fallon had Grande in mind for singing the hook, but when he reached out to him, he didn’t immediately hear back because She was busy as a coach on “The Voice.” Then, in mid-October, she says, “I love this song.

She also asks who is going to wrap the song, which Fallon did in the demo. Grande writes to Megan Thee Stallion, who replies, “Are you kidding me? Ariana and Jimmy, my two besties? Done.”

Fallon was shocked at how fast things were progressing for the song. “It was nothing like a week ago,” he said. “And now two of the biggest stars in the world are saying, ‘Let’s play and do a video.'”

Though the result was light-hearted and awkward, the video shoot was tough due to everyone’s busy schedule. After taping two episodes of “That’s My Jam”, Fallon shot his scenes with Grande in Los Angeles, including one Grande and the rest of “The Voice” coach. A few weeks later he shot his scenes with Megan Thee Stallion in New York.

At a time when vaccination for COVID-19 may be viewed as a controversial issue, Fallon hopes that people will view the song in the spirit it was composed. “If we can ask people to get boosters or get vaccinated, that would be amazing,” he said. “If not, hopefully it just makes people smile and have a good time.”

Fallon, who has been a longtime fan of Christmas music, said the pandemic inspired him to create some good cheer.

“It was kind of a wake-up call where you think, ‘Why not do as much as we can to make people happy? They said. “We forget about these things. And it’s a great time to celebrate and come together.”
