Cee Lo Green has teamed up with his co-star from The Voice, Christina Aguilera, for the classic Christmas duet “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” And while we’re sure the elfish performer did it to spread holiday cheer, we’re also assuming he did it hoping the tune would replicate the success of Xtina’s previous Voice duet “Moves Like Jagger.”
At the top of the snippet, Aguilera is in total Betty Boop mode, sultry and flirtatious as ever. Cee Lo tones down the stank for a classic-sounding vocal, allowing Aguilera to take over and from this preview, it seems like it’ll be Xtina’s Xmas song. Also: horns and scatting! The track appears on Cee Lo’s forthcoming Christmas album Cee Lo’s Magic Moment (out October 30), and you can hear the 90-second preview after the jump.
Cee Lo’s Magic Moment will also include Christmas standards like “White Christmas” and “Silent Night,” and guest spots by Rod Stewart and The Muppets (obvi).
