John Legend and Kelly Clarkson release updated version of ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’

John Legend, Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson and John Legend released this updated version of ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ on Friday night. The duo has changed its lyrics, to omit the controversial and sexist lines that existed in the original song.

The original song has been criticized recently for promoting rape culture. There are lines and lyrics in the song, where a man is trying to convince a woman to stay for the night, despite her continued protests and refusals. The man also keeps plying her with alcohol and tries to convince her that it is cold outside. Its lyrics like ‘Say, what’s in this drink?’ are inappropriate, and were spoken against recently. The original song became a hit when it was included in the 1949 movie Neptune’s Daughter. The lyrics of the original were deeply problematic. It might have been passed off as okay in the 50s, but it definitely needed to be updated in today’s day and age.
The updated version of Baby, It’s Cold Outside, appears on John Legend’s Christmas album, “A Legendary Christmas: The Deluxe Edition.” The holiday album by John Legend released on Friday, 8th November 2019.
In the updated version, the song is about a man and woman conversing. The woman says she needs to get home, and the man says he will call her a car, and he thanks her for dropping in, and for spending the evening with him, making it beautiful.
Another change that the duo did in the lyrics was that when the woman talks about what her friends will think if she has another drink, the man replies that it is her body and her choice.
