Following in her mother’s footsteps! Kelly Clarkson’s daughter River Rose, eight, steals the show in new remix of mom’s hit song Favorite Kind Of High
Kelly Clarkson‘s daughter River Rose, eight, has a cameo in the lyric video for the David Guetta remix of the Because of You singer’s latest hit – Favorite Kind of High.
River took over Guetta’s turntable and rocked out to her mom’s song while wearing a pair of headphones.
The song and the technicolor video is the American Idol winner’s third single after Mine and Me from her upcoming 10th studio album, Chemistry.
The Stronger singer, 41, wrote most of the new tracks while navigating her divorce from Brandon Blackstock, 46, after seven years of marriage. The couple also share son, Remington, seven.
The Since U Been Gone singer – who opened up about River being bullied at school – sat down for an interview with Nancy O’ Dell on TalkShopLive to talk about her album, saying: ‘Having chemistry with someone is an incredible, and overwhelming, feeling. It’s like you have no choice in the matter.’
‘You are just drawn to each other. This can be good and bad. This album takes you down every path that chemistry could lead you down,’ she added.
The Breakaway hitmaker revealed that she never experienced that kind of take your breath away chemistry until she met her music manager ex-husband.
‘I never really connected before my ex-husband. And I never connected with anybody like that,’ she said.
‘I’d never felt that. That just kind of chemical… that level of just chemical reaction, I just never felt that and I just remembered the first time we even met, I was like, ‘Woah.’ I just felt something.’
But not all chemistry is good, which the Grammy winner experienced as she was divorcing.
‘And then it can go very poorly, chemistry. You can have amazing chemistry with somebody who you really shouldn’t be with, you know. Not that one person is good or bad, whatever. It’s just not a healthy environment.’
‘I just feel like chemistry is a beautiful and amazing thing, but it’s powerful for the good and the bad. Makes you do stupid stuff.’
Clarkson filed for divorce in 2020 after seven years of marriage. It took two years to finalize.
And she admitted the process of writing this album was emotional.
‘I wasn’t thinking at all. I was just crying, like a lot. That’s really what was happening,’ she told O’Dell.
‘It’s a big decision, right?’ she said about the decision to divorce.
‘Ending a relationship, you know, that’s gone on for years. You have children. It’s so involved.
‘There are so many layers to it. So, I don’t know. I don’t think I thought really at all. Until afterwards. I just wrote a bunch of music, like two and a half to three years ago,’ she explained.
‘And then I think the thinking came in when it was like what’s appropriate and inappropriate.’
And River helped the mom of two decide which songs made the cut for the album.
‘I mean there’s definitely ones on there where “mommy was angry” but mommies get angry and that’s healthy, that happens,’ she said, ‘and, you know, I don’t polish my life and show it to my children. They see it as a whole, which I think is healthier.’
Chemistry hits record stores and streaming services on June 23.
