It has arrived....
John Legend has released the deluxe version of his Christmas album, A Legendary Christmas and that means we finally get to hear the new more "woke" version of Baby It's Cold Outside.
You can't deny it SOUNDS beautiful, but changing up the lyrics has a lot of people upset including Deana Martin, the daughter of Dean Martin who sang the song in 1959. During a recent interview she said:
"You do not change the lyrics to the song. [John] made it more sexual with those words that he has just said. It’s absolutely absurd. I think what he’s done is, he’s stealing the thunder from Frank Loesser’s song and from my dad. He should write his own song if he doesn’t like this one, but don’t change the lyrics. It’s a classic, perfect song."
