Fourteen years after The Best Man arrived at movie theaters and subsequently became a cult classic on DVD and replays on cable, particularly in many African-American households, the sequel, The Best Man Holiday, is finally on its way. When it hits theaters nationwide on November 15, you'll see the ensemble cast making their return: Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Monica Calhoun, Harold Perrineau, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, and Melissa De Sousa. And whereas the movie features a who's-who list of actors and actresses, the soundtrack has top billing from R&B stars.

The Best Man Holiday – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be released ahead of the film, hitting stores and online outlets (like Amazon) on October 29, via RCA Records. Two singers who call Charlotte home--Anthony Hamilton and Fantasia Barrino--are among the All-Star R&B lineup, which also includes: R. Kelly, Monica, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, Jordin Sparks, Ne-Yo, and more. The soundtrack is a combination of newly written material as well as classics being covered by the artists. And since this is a holiday movie, most of the songs have Christmas themes.

The track list:

01) Christmastime To Me, by Jordin Sparks
02) Someday at Christmas, by Mario
03) What Christmas Means To Me, by Fantasia
04) I Still Have You, by Charlie Wilson
05) Christmas, I’ll Be Steppin’, by R. Kelly
06) This Christmas, by Mary J. Blige
07) Shelter, by John Legend
08) Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, by Monica
09) Winter Wonderland, by Emeli Sand√©
10) Can You Stand The Rain, by New Edition
11) I Want To Come Home for Christmas, by Ne-Yo
12) O Holy Night, by Jayda Brown and Jasmine Watkins
13) As, by Marsha Ambrosius and Anthony Hamilton

The first song to be released from the soundtrack is "I Still Have You," by Charlie Wilson.
