Christmas begins promptly at 12:00 a.m. the day after Thanksgiving: stores turn into the North Pole overnight, radios switch to Christmas songs and almost instantly Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” re-enters Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. While some love classic christmas tunes, others love remixes and newer songs. Early last month, John Legend even created a consent-friendly version of the christmas carol hit “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” While Legend is the latest artist to put out a christmas song, he certainly isn’t the first to create a R&B/Soul rendition of a christmas carol. We’ve put together a R&B/Soul christmas playlist below:

Boyz II Men - Let It Snow

Destiny’s Child - Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

TLC - Sleigh Ride

Whitney Houston - Do You Hear What I Hear

Mariah Carey  - All I Want For Christmas Is You 

Nat King Cole - The Christmas Song

Stevie Wonder  - Someday At Christmas

Mary J. Blige - Christmas in the City (ft. Angie Martinez)

Chris Brown - This Christmas

The Temptations - Silent Night
