John Legend shows that romance and respect can go hand in hand in his new version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" with Kelly Clarkson. Released Thursday, Legend's updated version swaps out the seemingly creepy lyrics and date-rape references of the original; instead, Legend quickly offers to call Clarkson ride when she sings that she's "got to go away." Legend also gets in a funny dig at the original, in which the female character sings, "My daddy will be pacing the floor"--to which Legend replies, "Wait, what are you still livin’ home for?" Their new version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" appears on Legend's holiday LP A Legendary Christmas: The Deluxe Edition, which dropped on Friday.
