R&B Wedding Reception Songs

60 R&B Wedding Songs That Will Get Your Wedding Party Moving

When meeting with a bride and groom for the first time nothing makes me happier than when the bride and groom tell me they want hip-hop and R&B music for their wedding. Mainly because I love this music, it’s what I grew up listening and still listen to today. Plus being a club DJ for over 15 years I have an exhaustive collection of hip-hop and r&b music. Everyone who grew up listening to this kind of music in the 90s and 2000s is now getting married, so turns out this playlist now works well for DJing weddings. 


To help couples pick a few options for soulful music at their wedding I have compiled this playlist of r&b wedding reception songs. By no means is this a complete list. I have compiled what I feel is a good collection of mainly modern R&B and Hip-Hop songs that go down well at wedding receptions that you can pick and choose from. Please comment and share if you think anything needs to be added.
