Just three days ago Kelly Clarkson celebrated the 15th anniversary of her American Idol win. According to the 35-year-old singer, her upcoming eighth studio album is the album she’s wanted to make since winning the inaugural season of the singing competition. Now that she’s freed from her Idol contract, Clarkson is finally doing it.
Clarkson kicked off her Meaning Of Life era by releasing two singles today. “Love So Soft” is a sassy soulful pop song with a killer funky doo wop-like beat. Meanwhile, “Move” is a powerful ballad where Kelly gets to belt her ass off. I love them both, but I’m a little biased since I’m a huge Kelly fan.
If this is what we can expect from Meaning Of Life, I’m all caps IN!!! Clarkson has called it “a singer’s record” that was inspired by the likes of Annie Lennox, Prince, TLC, Whitney Houston, Tina Turner and En Vogue.
Check out the Dave Meyers-directed visual for “Love So Soft” below, along with the official audio for “Move You.”
