I get it. You’ve had enough of Christmas. Your blood is still thick with the wheelbarrow of Quality Streets you ate, you’re still trying to digest the dinner that weighed more than your weekly shop and you’re dealing with the customary pinch as your jeans plead with your muffin top for room. You witnessed a pastiche of every festive cliché and want to kiss the whole spectacle goodbye for another 364 days.
But just when you thought it was all over, I concocted a delectable selection of songs to waltz through the remainder of the festive season. From Nat King Cole to Kanye, as long as there is a trace of tinsel in your home, there is room for a seasonal soundtrack. Come with me know, as we look at R’n’B legends and their festive offerings.
