With Thanksgiving finally wrapped up, we now head towards the last major holiday of the year – Christmas, and it seems like the R&B world is doing their part to not only capitalize on the season but spread a bit of Christmas cheer through their music. Mary J. Blige kicked hings off way back in October with the release of her Christmas album, and now we’ve seen material released from Ariana Grande, Tamar Braxton, K. Michelle, Kevin McCall, and more. Need that holiday cheer to come beaming in? They’ve got you covered. Alone on X-Mas? They’ve got you covered. Check out our “How R&B Saved Christmas” playlist below.
