The single was originally featured on the first of a series of A Very Special Christmas compilation albums with iconic cover artwork designed by artist Keith Haring. Over the course of 10 years, the album sold over 4 million copies in the U.S., becoming certified Quadruple Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

The iconic artwork is featured on the tongue label linking this classic style worn by RUN-D.M.C. to Keith Haring’s connection with New York City’s street culture in the 1980s.
