Kelly Clarkson won the first season of ‘American Idol’ over a decade ago and since then she has emerged as one of the leading artists in the field of Pop music. So, it is only fitting that she celebrate her amazing journey with compilation of her most popular songs, ‘Greatest Hits – Chapter 1′, and she announced the set’s release date earlier today.
‘Greatest Hits – Chapter 1′ will be released in the US on November 19th. the compilation will be preceded by the lead single, ‘Catch My Breath’, which is expected to be issued to digital retailers on October 16th. The song was co-written by Jason Halbert and Eric Olson.
While speaking about ‘Catch My Breath’, Clarkson noted, “to celebrate the strength and longevity that my fans, friends, and family have supported me with I wrote this song ‘Catch my Breath’ with one of my best friends that has seen me through everything. This song represents who I’ve been, what I’ve felt, and where I’m headed as not only an artist but as a 30 year old that is now smart enough to know that it’s time to stop, catch my breath, and be proud of not only what has been accomplished but of all the people that have helped me become the woman I am today.”
To date, Clarkson has sold over 10 million albums in the US alone and scored 10 top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. What is my favourite song by her? ‘Since U Been Gone’ takes the crown and you can watch the video for that tune below:
