We gave it a B+

Some of R&B’s finest contribute to Special Gift, a holiday disc for grown-ups who no longer believe in Santa Claus. Ron Isley delivers a slow jam wrapped in sexy double entendres, while his wife, Angela Winbush, gets equally romantic on ”All I Want for Christmas.” And if that doesn’t encourage you to turn down the lights, Mona Lisa smolders on ”Silent Night” as if sweet baby Jesus couldn’t be further from her mind.
