Kelly Clarkson Duets With John Legend On Haunting New Ballad “Run Run Run”

Day three of Kelly Clarkson’s literal Piece By Piece release gives us the highly anticipated new duet she spent the last few months hyping up. The hype was well deserved, too, because this song is intense, impressive, and tragic.

John Legend joins Kelly on “Run Run Run,” a slow building ballad, backed by a simple piano that puts all the focus on the vocals. Kelly shows off her low, sultry notes before John desolately croons his reply. Their voices blend perfectly. “Run Run Run” is deceptively calm despite its restrained tension, but crescendos into a blaring end of drum beats and orchestral work. It nearly drowns out Kelly and John’s last belted chorus, but their lyrics still shine through.

“Run Run Run” is one of the darkest songs Kelly has released in her career, and the addition of John to the ballad amplifies the melancholy mood. A version of the song was originally released by Tokio Hotel in 2014.

Piece By Piece will be released on March 3rd, but if you pre-order it on iTunes now, you’ll get instant downloads of the lead single “Heartbeat Song,” as well as the 3 songs released this week so far. The Sia-penned “Invincible,” Kelly’s emotional “Piece By Piece,” and this tragic rendition of “Run Run Run” have all been stellar songs, so you’ll definitely want to get those!

The Kelly Clarkson “piece by piece” song release continues tomorrow with “Take You High,” and will end on Friday with “Someone,” so don’t miss it! You can get caught up on everything we know about each of her new songs, and read up on what went into making Piece By Piece. Keep checking back here for all the latest Kelly Clarkson music news.

 

Lyrics

I wonder how your body tastes
Inside of someone else’s place
Pull away your eyes, there’s nothing left to hear
I’m alone but I know everything you fear

And you waited on the rain
For tears my heart is caged
And we fall through fate
And we rise and rise again
And I run run run run run
And I run run run run run
I run run run run run
I just run run run

Tell me how you close the door
Knowing nobody can love you more
Telling all your friends that this love is just made for bleeding
On and up under water this still we keep on trying to breathe in

And you waited on the rain
For tears my heart is caged
And we fall through fate
And we rise and rise again
And I run run run run run
And I run run run run run
I run run run run run
I just run run run

Our love’s for fighting
Tied up in silence

Oh, yeah
Yeah
Whoa
Oh

And you waited on the rain
For tears my heart is caged
And we fall through fate
And we rise and rise again
And I run run run run run
And I run run run run run
I run run run run run
I run run run run run
And I run run run run run
And I run run run run run
I run run run run run
I just run run run

Our love’s for fighting
Tied up in silence
