Kelly Clarkson has a budding hit on her hands with “Broken & Beautiful.” Her first of several contributions to the UglyDolls soundtrack features a writing assist from Pink and production from Marshmello and Steve Mac. That alone was enough to guarantee it would be a massive smash with plenty of replay factor. But it’s also a rousing anthem with a seriously uplifting message. “I know I’m Super Woman, I know I’m strong, I know I’ve got this ’cause I’ve had it all along. I’m phenomenal, I’m enough, I don’t need you to tell me who to be,” she declares.
And the bop only gets bigger moving into the chorus. “Can someone just hold me? Don’t fix me, don’t try to change a thing. Can someone just know me? ‘Cause underneath I’m broken and it’s beautiful.” With growing support at radio and an upcoming performance at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, the single is really picking up steam. And it gets yet another boost from the just-released music video. Out today (April 25), it features cameo appearances from Kelly’s daughter River Rose as well as Moxy – a character Kelly voices in the UglyDollsmovie.
We’re also treated to an UglyDolls version of Marshmello, which is seriously too cute for words. All things considered, the feel-good video is an absolute must-see as we move into the back half of the week. Give it a view below.
