The holidays are a time to spend with loved ones. But they wouldn’t be complete without the perfect playlist. We asked DJ Cassidy, who’s spun for everyone from the Obamas to the Carters, to give us 20 songs that sum up the season.
His soulful soundtrack includes timeless classics by Barry White and The Jacksons to modern days hits like Whitney Houston’s “Million Dollar Bill” and Cassidy’s own “Calling All Hearts” featuring Robin Thicke and Jessie J. Whether cozying up by the fireplace on a wintery night or ringing in the new year, there’s something for everyone.
“Holiday songs are the sounds of celebration,” DJ Cassidy told Rap-Up. “They exude warmth in every note and soul in every chord. They make you want to dance the night away and spread love into the new year. Whether the snow is falling fast or the sun is shining bright, hit play, pump up the volume, and let the holiday begin.”
Fresh off Usher’s “UR Experience” tour, Cassidy will release his debut album Paradise Royale in 2015 featuring R. Kelly, Kelly Rowland, Mary J. Blige, Ne-Yo, John Legend, and more.
