Kelly Clarkson brings the soul and sass to an acoustic rendition of Prince’s iconic song “Kiss.”

Clarkson’s new album Meaning Of Life is exceptional, and she’s giving us another reason to appreciate the era.

As part of her Spotify Sessions, Kelly covered Prince classic, “Kiss.” Warm strings and funk waves dance around Kelly’s signature vibrato. It goes without saying, but her vocals are out of this world.

This is a must-listen. She also performed lead single, “Love So Soft,” but the singer is ready to set the song aside. The AMAs announced Clarkson will perform her next Meaning Of Life single at the awards show on Nov. 19. My money’s on “Whole Lotta Woman,” but fingers crossed for “Medicine.”

Listen to the new acoustic ditties below:
