Kelly Clarkson is back and better than ever!

The 32-year-old singer released "Heartbeat Song" Sunday—her first single since giving birth to daughter River Rose Blackstock seven months ago. And? It's upbeat, catchy and everything you'd expect from a Kelly hit!

The former American Idol winner even got some help from her mini-me making the track. Mom Instagrammed an adorable snap of her "new producer" hard at work in the studio. And last week, little River helped Kelly introduce #HeartbeatSong to fans for the very first time!

In the cutest teaser video ever, River kicked things off (literally) by dancing to her mama's new tune. "Hey, River, what are you listening to?" Kelly asked the tiny tot. "It's making you dance!"

She really was dancing, too! At Kelly's encouragement, River kept right on movin', smiling, giggling and bopping around to mom's infectious lyrics. With one listen you'll see why she's a fan (and probably be singing, "This is my heartbeat song and I'm gonna play it/ Been so long I forgot how to turn it up, up, up, up all night" for the rest of the day).

A hit like that takes off fast! In fact, even Kelly was surprised by how quickly #HeartbeatSong went up on iTunes...
