The Sleigher: Rizzle Kicks, “Happy That You’re Here”
HO HO WHO: Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule, aka Brit hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks. Not as well-known in the States, the pair gets most of its love from the U.K. tween set.
JINGLE BELL BALK: "It's different now we're grown-ups/Christmas dinner isn't free," the 21- and 22-year-old singers mutter at the beginning of this ditty about the big drag that is Christmas. They go on to grumble about holiday ads airing too early and the absence of friends. Chin up, fellas!
SILVER BELL LINING: Two things will salvage the Christmas season for these gents: festive lights and the presence of the ones they love. In case you miss the message, they repeat the title phrase 16 times in three and a half minutes.
CHEER FACTOR: 3/10. This song's got brass, but it's not of the joyful variety.
