John Legend and Kelly Clarkson are breathing new life into the controversial Christmas classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” after Legend teamed up with Natasha Rothwell from HBO’s Insecure to update the lyrics for a more sensitive (and less suspect) narrative.
The EGOT winner announced Monday (Oct. 28) that he's releasing A Legendary Christmas: The Deluxe Edition on Nov. 8 via Columbia Records, updating his holiday album first released in October 2018. The 18-track LP delivers four original recordings of holiday classics, including the 2019 redo of "Baby, It's Cold Outside."
The perceptive musical conversation between the two The Voice coaches includes these lyrics, according to a press release: “I really can’t stay (Baby it’s cold outside)/ I’ve gotta go away (I can call you a ride)/ This evening has been (So glad that you dropped in)/ So very nice (Time spent with you is paradise)/ My mother will start to worry (I’ll call a car and tell ‘em to hurry).”
