The best RNB & Hip Hop songs to play at your 2021 / 2022 wedding 

The best way to bring heart and soul to any wedding reception is through a carefully curated playlist of R&B & Hip Hop favourites. Make sure all of your guests have something to sing along to by selecting songs from artists throughout the years.


Your grandparents might not groove along with a song from Drake, but maybe they’d feel inspired to get up and dance to a classic Stevie Wonder or Otis Redding tune. And while the parents of the bride may feel moved to dance when Anita Baker or Luther Vandross comes on, your bridal party might rush the dance floor for Beyonce or Frank Ocean.

Whatever your favourites might be, this list is the ultimate new(ish) R&B, Hip Hop tracks that will set your dance floor on fire!

12. Umbrella - Rihanna

That baseline, those smooth vocals. Yes, your wedding party is going to be epic.

11. Halo - Beyonce

Beyonce packs out your dance floor with this one. Unless it really is your jam try to avoid Single Ladies. Its washed up, overplayed and your wedding will sound like every other wedding. Like, ever.

10. Ms Jackson - Outkast

We love dropping Hey Ya! in the party sets and this one just sounds so so good on the dance floor. We will probably playing this one forever for ever ever......

8. I Like It - Cardi B

Another one that will work wonders at your wedding party.

7. Can't Hold Us - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Its always a toss up between this or 'Thrift Shop'. Both sound great but its pretty much impossible not to sing along with this chorus.  

6. In Da Club - 50 Cent

50 Cent sounding like a total boss with this all time monster hit.

5. Low - Flo Rida (feat T-Pain)

Number 3 in our chart this one just never fails. Like, ever.

2. Yeah! - Usher

You say Hip... we say Hop! Its still our biggest wedding floor filler of all time.
