JOHN LEGEND: Set to Release a Duet for ‘A Legendary Christmas’

John Legend is coming through a new set of songs to help celebrate the Christmas season.

A deluxe edition of A Legendary Christmas is due out a week from Friday. Four new tracks include a duet with Kelly Clarkson on “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” Legend wrote the lyrics for the reimagined Christmas classic alongside comedian Natasha Rothwell of Insecure fame.

Other holiday standards include “This Christmas,” “My Favorite Things,” “Silver Bells” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Featured artists include Esperanza Spalding and Stevie Wonder.

The 18-track project was executive produced by Raphael Saadiq.

Hot Takes:

  • Kinda feels like we’re getting regifted the same thing we got last year, with some new wrapping paper.
  • I swear, every year the Christmas music starts earlier and earlier.
  • He’s no Mariah Carey.
