Get In The Christmas Spirit With 'The Best Man Holiday' Soundtrack

When The Best Man came to theaters in 1999, it brought with it a memorable soundtrack chock full with some of the brightest stars in R&B and hip hop. 14 years later and the soundtrack to the film's sequel The Best Man Holiday will be doing the same. However, since the film is holiday-themed this go 'round (and we pretty much skip straight to Christmas after Labor Day these days), the soundtrack will follow suit with most of the songs being Christmas themed. Featuring a selection of covers, standards and even a few original tunes, the soundtrack will host appearances from Jordin Sparks, Monica, Charlie Wilson, R. Kelly and Fantasia. And before you ask who's covering "This Christmas" (because you can't have an R&B-themed holiday album without one), Mary J. Blige does the honors this time around with her rendition (which will also appear on her upcoming Christmas album). Outside of the yuletide tunes, New Edition's classic "Can You Stand the Rain" also makes the cut as well as a cover of Stevie Wonder's "As," this time being performed by Anthony Hamilton and Marsha Ambrosius. While I doubt this will resonate with me as much as the last soundtrack (I generally try to avoid holiday music whenever possible, which makes mid-November to late December very difficult), I'm sure it will be just what the doctor ordered for those looking for a little soul during the holiday season. The Best Man Holiday Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available October 29th.
