Kelly Clarkson - Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)
The ever lovely Kelly Clarkson's last single Mr. Know It All was a bit of a hit-in-disguise, a subtle grower that bloomed from small, innocuous beginnings into an all out uber-hit. For me, it was her X Factor performance that really crystallised what a great song it really was.
But new single Stronger is all about the instant appeal - it's an all-out up-tempo pop-rock stormer straight out of the Since U Been Gone mold; it's Kelly on fine form, doing what she's always done best. With a good drenching of synths and an empowering 'GirlPower!' chorus (surely mandatory for any big female star's latest hit single these days, right?)
Basically, it's a brilliant pop song. And Kelly looks great in the video too.
Stronger is released on the 6th February.
