Kelly Clarkson has dropped a new video, for her song “Piece by Piece,” the third single off her seventh studio album of the same name.
In the emotional black-and-white video, Clarkson’s daughter River Rose is featured along with a dozen different women celebrating pregnancy, womanhood, their relationships — and also the pain of picking yourself up after being burned by someone you love and having someone new help put you back together, “piece by piece.”
“It was a very vulnerable song in the sense of saying aloud yes, I did have help and somebody helped put me back together,” Clarkson tells CBS News. “A lot of people would view that as weakness, but I think it’s a strength, to trust someone to do that.”
Clarkson and husband Brandon Blackstock already have baby No. 2 on the way — a bouncing baby boy, due in spring 2016.
