The Best Hip-Hop & R&B Jams That Surprisingly Make Great Thanksgiving Songs


No fighting over the radio this year!

We all know it takes a lot to appease both the old heads and the youngins' when it comes to the good ol' Thanksgiving playlist. Some only want the golden hits while others want the new jams. So, we at iHeartRadio have come up with a compromise playlist of sorts that features nothing but the hits from both the old and new school. And while each song may not be about eating turkey and collard greens (some are) each track has one thing in common — they're all about family/and or partying as a family!
