Written by content on October 29, 2019
US singers John Legend and Kelly Clarkson have recorded an updated version of the Christmas hit Baby, It’s Cold Outside which ran into controversy with the #MeToo movement.
The song, written in 1944, takes the form of a back-and-forth conversation between a man and a woman.
However, last Christmas it raised questions about consent .
It was suggested one line – “Say what’s in this drink? (No cabs to be had out there)” – could refer to date rape.
In an interview with Vanity Fair , Legend said he and writer Natasha Rothwell had penned some new lyrics for the song and he had recorded it with Clarkson.
