‘The Best Man Holiday’ Soundtrack Includes Jordin Sparks, Ne-Yo, Fantasia, R. Kelly + More
Some of your favorite R&B artists are ringing in the holidays on the official soundtrack for the upcoming flick, 'The Best Man Holiday.'
The movie, which is the follow-up to the fan-favorite 1999 release of 'The Best Man,' stars Morris Chestnut, Sanaa Lathan, Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau and others.
There's even New Edition's classic ballad 'Can You Stand the Rain.' What this has to do with Christmas we don't know, but hey, it can rain during the holidays, you never know.
We are definitely interested in hearing Emeli Sande croon 'Winter Wonderland.' Her angelic voice is perfect for Christmas caroling. And we've heard Mary J. Blige's faithful cover of Donny Hathaway's holiday tune, 'This Christmas.'
The film's director, Malcolm D. Lee, oversees the soundtrack and wanted the songs to reflect the theme of the movie.
"I am a firm believer that music is essential to the entirety of a film-going experience. 'The Best Man Holiday' soundtrack is no exception," said Lee in a statement (via Urban Bridgez). "With a combination of new R&B tunes and Christmas classics by contemporary artists, this is the soundtrack I heard accompanying this movie. I hope you enjoy it this holiday season and every year."
'The Best Man Holiday' soundtrack will arrive in stores Oct. 29, while the movie will hit theaters nationwide Nov. 15.
