Here's John Legend & amp; Kelly Clarkson's Woke "Baby, It's Cold Outside" Remake

John Legend left and host Kelly Clarkson speak onstage during the 2018 Billboard Music Awards

This brassy new version - sung with jazzy gusto by Legend and Clarkson, fellow coaches on "The Voice" - pours on the flirty fun, but lyrics such as "It's your body and your choice" feel a little silly and gimmicky.

However, The Voice coaches sing, "My mother will start to worry (I'll call a auto and tell 'em to hurry)/My daddy will be pacing the floor (Wait, what do you still live at home for?)/So, really I'd better scurry (Your driver, his name is Murray). "My daddy will be pacing the floor (Wait, what are you still livin" home for?)". He goes on to call her a auto, crooning, "It's your body, and your choice", and offers her his coat.

If I have one more drink? For example, Clarkson sings, "What will my friends think if I have one more drink?" before Legend sings, "It's your body and your choice". The new iteration options woke lyrics like "It is really your system and your alternative", and rewrites the premise of the song totally: while the primary tried using to get the lady to remain, Legend and Clarkson's rendition has the man calling her an Uber and respecting her alternative to go away. I couldn't place my finger on it proper up till I heard a toddler as quickly as test with, why gained't he let her go property?

Legend, however, seems to have found a loophole by twisting some of the song's lyrics.

"You do not change the lyrics to the song", Martin told "Good Morning America".

Kanye was there primarily to discuss his YEEZY empire, taking to the stage alongside sneaker designer Steven Smith. Kanye West is hoping to kick-start a career in politics as he reveals plans to run for USA president in 2024.

She called the tune's new iteration, which was penned by Legend, "absolutely absurd". He's made it more sexual with those words that he has just said.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I simply must go. "Way to ruin a classic".

But whilst the track may have acquired a politically suitable update, some on Twitter aren't much too joyful about Legend and Clarkson's consider on the common.

"Yet when it comes to the often disturbingly hateful women-shaming lyrics of so many of his contemporaries, gutless Legend remains silent". "This song makes NO SENSE ANYMORE!"

Though the original song was released in 1944, factors such as the #MeToo movement have led some modern-day listeners to question the original's lyrical content. Take a listen (below) and share your thoughts in the comments!
