Underrated Christmas Songs, Day 8: Kanye West, “Christmas In Harlem”

Every year at Soul In Stereo, we spent 25 days featuring our favorite holiday songs. But this year, we’re featuring the 25 most underrated Christmas songs — those songs that bring back wonderful memories, yet few people seem to know them. Let’s give those songs the shine they deserve.

Kanye’s GOOD Music Friday series back in 2010 was an unexpected treat, and this track was probably the biggest surprise. As usual, Ye and friends are more concerned with gifts and girls than spreading Christmas cheer, but Teyana Taylor’s warm hook and the track’s soulful sample are a perfect fit for the season.
