"Christmas I'll Be Steppin'" was recorded by Kelly for the soundtrack of the movie The Best Man Holiday, and plays during the end credits. The song resembles "Happy People", but with different lyrics and a more Christmas feel to it.[12][13][14] "Christmas, I'll Be Steppin'" is the fifth song on the official soundtrack of The Best Man Holiday movie and also one of the few songs that's not a cover of another artist on that album.
