THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY – SOUNDTRACK JUMPS TO NO. 2 AND NO. 4 ON THIS WEEK’S BILLBOARD SOUNDTRACKS AND R&B ALBUMS CHARTS

bmhWith the weekend box-office success of Universal Pictures’ The Holiday, sales of the accompanying RCA Records Official Motion Picture Soundtrack has quadrupled, landing it at . 2 and . 4 on this week’Billboard Soundtracks and R&B charts, respectively.

In addition to holiday music, the soundtrack also offers great R&B tunes including ’s “I Still Have You,” ’s “Can You Stand The Rain” and a soul-stirring duet of Stevie Wonder’s “As,” performed by Marsha Ambrosius and Anthony Hamilton, both of whom have cameos in the film.

Tonight (11/20), Charlie Wilson will perform the standout track “I Still Have You” on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and sit in with The Roots for the entire broadcast, delivering some of his classic hits. The legendary singer recently performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“I am a firm believer that music is essential to the entirety of a film going experience. The Holiday soundtrack is no exception,” says Malcolm D. Lee, the film’s writer and director and executive album producer. “The songs listed here not only make up the fabric of the movie, but many served as inspiration to the creation of the screenplay. 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.”
