As you might guess from the title, “What Doesn’t Kill You” is an empowerment song. It kicks off with a shimmering synch riff, then launches into an upbeat dance-pop number, complete with guitars and electronic drums.“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stand a little taller, doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone,” KC sings on the chorus. This song is a buoyant hover between pop rock, R&B and Nashville styled music genres. Clarkson is a wounded lover, bellowing her pain and scorching the earth. Every #1 that this music icon releases is another opportunity to showcase one of music’s most remarkable voices. With a catchy, uplifting hook, a beautiful ballad, and an inspiring singer, “What Doesn’t Kill You” will carry Kelly Clarkson to the top of the charts yet again.
