These 13 R&B Songs Will Get You Right This Holiday Season [LISTEN]
Every year, we make a point of putting together a new holiday playlist, partly because we love the holidays and all of the classic music that comes along with them, but also because there’s always a slew of new recordings from some of our favorite artists that we can’t just keep to ourselves. We’ve got over 40 minutes of vital holiday music, both classic and brand new, that you’ll be bumping straight through into the new year.
This year, we’re spotlighting Pentatonix again, the world’s premier a capella group, because their holiday albums have started to become an annual affair. Make sure you don’t miss that bit of trap infusion they out on “Up On The Rooftop”. We’ve also got Leslie Odom Jr. of Hamilton fame with a timeless rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, and none other than The Hamiltones with their own original soulful composition “Come On Christmas”. And we’d be remiss if we left out legendary recordings from the likes of Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and Donny Hathaway.
