Stream ‘The Best Man Holiday’ Soundtrack Featuring R. Kelly, Monica, Mario, & Fantasia

The Best Man Holiday

It’s going to be a very soulful Christmas. Some of R&B’s brightest stars spread some holiday cheer on the soundtrack to The Best Man Holiday.

The 13-song compilation features newly-penned material, as well as holiday classics, performed by artists including R. Kelly, Jordin Sparks, Mary J. Blige, Mario, Fantasia, Monica, Ne-Yo, Marsha Ambrosius, John Legend, Emeli Sandé, and more.

R. Kelly gets into the Christmas groove on “Christmas, I’ll be Steppin’,” Monica covers Judy Garland’s classic “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and Fantasia decks the halls on “What Christmas Means to Me.”

The movie hits theaters on Nov. 15, but you can stream the entire soundtrack in advance of its Oct. 29 release.

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.

  46. Brandy & Monica Fan

    I like Monica at the end of her song. But it seemed too short. Now Fantasia GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY! She took your ass through that dang song even if you wasn’t ready for the ride!
    It needed to be longer too. IDK maybe because there Christmas songs. Give me Fantasia any day of the week!

    Chelsea Reply:

    @jakeselLS, fantasia is great but her screaming and crawling on every song like a church song is overkill so everyone’s opinion is different. Fantasia scares me by the second line of each song.

    [Reply]

    jakeselLs Reply:

    @Chelsea, Women please! Its called SANGIN, music, TALENT… until you can so called”scream” as effortlessly and beautifully than Fantasia you can AND should shut up and sit that *** down somewhere!? You’re entitled to feel how you feel but she didn’t get to where she is today because she was screamin! GIVE CREDIT! GIVE RESPECT! point blank, now you can add the period!

    Monica All Day!! WoW people are suprised she shitted all over the x-mas tree and gifts.. You must not have been a fan since day 1 to know she’s capable… Whitney said it : “that girl can saaaaang.. She scared me cuz she can go” Whitney

  56. TRUTH

    Loved fanny

    Loved Mario

    Monica’s was good, I dont think it was anything GREAT she gives the same vocals over and OVER

    Her Horrible Vibrato was controlled in this particular song but other than that I don’t know.. her voice is not moving at all even though she sounded good.

    Monica sings from a magical place. Her classic tune reveals what a talented singer is able to do when transforming song to art. She is a modern day Siren with a gift to tug at the hearts of the most wicked haters and shake up the unassuming talent that troll her music; hence why some of you are bashing her. Monica gives us, Lyra Angelica (Angel Song) wrapped in a Christmas song. Simply beautiful. Wunderbar!!!!

  67. Jake

    Monica slayed that damn song! Yall say what yall want. 20 years later and she still sounds GREAT. She does not do it for the glory and fame. Her voice was majestic. No need to pin her up against anyone because she does what she does and for that we are PROUD!

    This soundtrack is AMAZING! I think the placement of the songs throughout the movie was perfect. My personal faves are Jordin Sparks, Fantasia, Monica and Emeli Sande. Im glad I was able to see this movie before going to boot camp tomorrow for the next 2 months. I guess I’ll have my Christmas late, cuz come January, this soundtrack will be on repeat. LOL
