There’s still a week until Kelly Clarkson’s fifth studio album, Stronger, officially hits retailers, but here’s a little something to tide you over until then: The original American Idol diva has just dropped another song from the collection, “You Love Me,” on YouTube.
Like the other tracks from Stronger that have surfaced — “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger)” and “Mr. Know It All” — “You Love Me” is written from the perspective of a scorned lover. “You didn’t let me down / You didn’t tear me apart / You just opened my eyes / While breaking my heart,” Clarkson sings on the midtempo chorus, before getting to the lyrics that explain why the song is named what it is: “You just made me cry by claiming you love me, you love me, you love me.”
The whole thing is laid over driving guitar riffs, so it never gets too sad or weepy. It’s another song that’s sure to please fans — this one here is certainly very pleased with it — even if it doesn’t make a big splash on radio. Take a listen here:
What’s you think of “You Love Me”? Another hit for Kelly?
