October brings autumn leaves, cooler weather, long sleeves, and sweaters, but it also brings Halloween; one of the scariest haunting unofficial but traditional celebrations. While trick-or-treating and candy sweets fill the bags of goblins and goons, R&B music also plays a part in making this day ghoulish.
As all of us know, the legend, Icon, and the Greatest, Michael Jackson reigns supreme with his chiller “Thriller,” and Vincent Price, the master of all things terrifying, lent his voice to the classic.
ThisIsRnB hosts Kadeja, Qyiana, and Flisadam curated a list of their top ten scariest R&B Halloween-themed songs, music videos, and movies featuring R&B artists providing discussion and commentary for each of the selections. They each describe their narrative, backstories, and connection to the song, music video, and movie, respectively.
Kicking off the list is an interesting selection of out-of-the-ordinary Halloween-themed R&B songs that cover parts one and two of our four-part series with artists such as Houdini, Ray Parker Jr., Beyonce’, Jhene Aiko, Tamia just to name a few.
Be sure to watch our Halloween-themed R&B music special parts one and two below, and don’t forget to leave a comment. Stay tuned for parts three and four which will feature Halloween-themed videos and movies dropping on Friday, October 27th, and on Halloween, Tuesday, October 31st.
