Now that we've gotten Thanksgiving Day out of the way, the time has come to officially break out the holiday music without fear of being giving the "way-too-soon" side eye. With that in mind, naturally you'll want to break out such soulful classics as Boyz II Men, Luther Vandross, Donny Hathaway and, of course, The Temptations' holiday offerings. However, if you're looking to add something new to your holiday playlist, then look no further than Atlanta's Rhonda Thomas. The former background vocalist throws her hat into the ring with her recently released album, Little Drummer Girl. Thomas puts her own spin on holiday standards like "We Three Kings," "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and "O Holy Night" just to name a few. She even enlists a little help from fellow indie artist and SB fave Eric Roberson on the sultry "Mistletoe." A welcomed break from the jingling bells that normally pervade anything Christmas-related, the song is a smooth, sexy number that could help get even the grinchiest of people in the mood for a little holiday hanky panky. To hear more of Thomas' The Little Drummer Girl, you can check out samples at her website or on iTunes.
