Our Fave Songs That Name-Drop Santa

Can y'all believe that it's twelve days till Christmas? Only twelve days till Santa Claus takes his annual trip around the world. What better way to start off the Twelve Days Of Christmas countdown than a collection of songs that name-drop good ol' St. Nick? Here's our top three songs that mention our favorite man of the moment: Santa!Come Winter - Drake"See, she used to play piana / And now she never wait for Santa"With this ode to the Great White North, Canadian rapper Drake laments about a girl he met who grew up too fast. The growing-out-of-Santa metaphor represented in Drake's line is sad, but pretty spot on: one minute she's a young girl learning her scales; the next, she's no longer dreaming of the big guy in red. Not believing in Santa Claus during the holidays? So heartbreaking!John (If I Die Today) - Lil Wayne ft. Rick Ross"Pull up in the sleigh, hop out like I'm Santa Claus / N*ggas gather around, got gifts for each and all of y'all"This line is taken from Rick Ross's verse off Lil Wayne's "John (If I Die Today). The sleigh comparison is pretty accurate considering Ross usually drives his red Lambo with the top down. Also instead of reindeers, Ross probably has different vehicular features to the tune of spinners, tinted windows, and TVs all up in the headrest. Not to mention his "jolly" frame and big beard make him like, the official Santa of Hip Hop, if Santa were covered in tattoos and rocked a gold chain with a pendant of his own face.Little Freak - Usher ft. Nicki Minaj"I keep a couple h***, like Santa I keep a Vixen / Got that dasher, dancer, prancer"Yeah, this is a pretty inappropriate reference to Santa! This song isn't exactly child-friendly so we wouldn't recommend playing it around the fire this Christmas, BUT it is a good dance jam. PLUS Usher tells you how to win his heart in the lyrics, so listen up ladies!- AH, AL & SJ
