Could John Legend's be the ultimate R n' B/Soul wedding playlist?

Let's investigate…

Aretha Franklin? Check.
Ray Charles? Check.
Nina Simone? Check.
Stevie Wonder? Double check.

(Stevie performed “Ribbon in the Sky” live at John Legend's lavish nuptials in Lake Como last September.)

John Legend? Well of course, his soulful tunes should be on any self respecting R n B fan's wedding playlist, including his own.

He serenaded his beautiful, Vera Wang clad wife, Chrissy Teigen, with his latest hit and the first dance to end all first dance songs – “All of Me“.*


Hands up who else wishes they were invited?!

Well, thanks to the latest edition of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine, which features their exclusive story and wedding photos, you can imagine you were there. And John Legend even shared his wedding playlist!

Which, thanks to the wonders of Spotify, we can share with you too. Hurrah!

Prepare your ears for 62 romantic tracks from some of the most talented R n' B/Soul singers from the '50s right up to the present day.

Haven't got time to listen to them all right now? We hear you.

Pin / save the pretty image below for later or why not share it with your fellow R n B lovers?

This awesome playlist should not just be restricted to weddings!
