Who doesn’t want a queer Christmas jam? As part of Kacey Musgraves’ Christmas-centric variety show, now streaming on Amazon, “Glittery” is a star-struck collaboration with none other than Troye Sivan. “I love the way you decorate my heart,” the two coo in harmony.
“Glittery” is acoustic at the base with sparkling, perfectly snowy instruments floating into the ether. Sure, it doesn’t exactly have the same spark as Kelly Clarkson’s “Wrapped in Red” or Leona Lewis’ “One More Sleep” – but it has a magic all its own. It’s warmth goes down smooth like the fourth martini glass of eggnog.
“When you take your time, you turn me on and make my life glow / You got a strange effect on me / You make me feel so… glittery,” Musgraves pulls her lover in for a shoulder snuggle. The fireplace crackles, and all the outside troubles fade into piles of untouched snow drifts. Therein lies the charm, and no one could argue with that.
