Leighton Meester Takes On A Christmas Classic

Among the slew of new releases today—Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Susan Boyle and Adam Lambert, to name a few—comes the A Very Special Christmas Volume 7 compilation. Yes, it’s chock full of the usual holiday suspects. But hark! AVSC 7 also features a cover of the yuletide classic, “Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)” by Gossip Girl starlet Leighton Meester.

So will Blair Waldorf’s rendition of the holiday fave become as celebrated as the Darlene Love original and the 1987 cover by U2 (which, incidentally, appeared on the very first A Very Special Christmas album)? Have a listen to a clip of it after the jump and see what you think of her prospects.

Hmmm. Sorry, Upper East Siders, but we’re thinking this could use a little sexing-up by Robin Thicke.

Other artists on A Very Special Christmas Volume 7 include Miley Cyrus (“Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree”), Colbie Caillat (“Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”), Kellie Pickler (“Santa Baby”) and Kristinia DeBarge (“Do You Hear What I Hear?”).
