Kelly Clarkson, Piece by Piece

RCA

Oh, you thought Kelly Clarkson was so 2002? You're gonna learn today!

The first-ever American Idol winner is famous for creating songs that would inspire fans to belt her lyrics at the top of their lungs, whether it's while cruising in the car with friends or alone in the bedroom with a hairbrush.

And now, more than 10 years later, Clarkson proves she still has that power.

The 32-year-old singer has been spoiling fans by dropping a few songs from her upcoming album Piece by Piece ahead of it's release on March 3, and today, two new sure-to-be hits have surfaced on the Internet.

While "Let Your Tears Fall" has a fresh sound, it's still reminiscent of Clarkson's famous tracks, especially when it comes to the lyrics.

"I will come, no I won't run, I'm not scared, to care/ Come to me when you're in need, set it free, let the truth breathe/ Tell me all your secrets tell me your fears/ Imma push you away then only pull you near/ No I won't judge you and I'll help you through," she sings.

(Is calling a guy and leaving a song on their voicemail still a thing? Because this was practically made for that purpose.)

Then there's "Take You High" which is unlike anything we've really heard from Kelly. The track starts with a slow melody, focusing on Clarkson's vocals as she sings, "We don't know where this is going now/ But I'm feeling love for you/ I'm feeling something new yeah yeah..."

All of a sudden, the instrumentals squeeze in, the song starts picking up and boom! You're dancing in your seat to a sneak attack from the beat!

Earlier this month, Clarkson released "Invincible", "Piece By Piece" and "Run Run Run" featuring John Legend. The set's lead single "Heartbeat Song" was released last month, and rumor has it that another news song, titled "Someone" is supposed to drop tomorrow.

During an interview with BBC Radio 1 last week, Kelly surprisingly revealed that a lot of artists wouldn't work with her on this album (say whaaaa?!).

"I honestly would collaborate with a lot of people, but everyone usually says no," the Grammy-winner admitted. "I'm not kidding you. I have legitimately asked several people that I'm not going to call out, and that's cool, but I don't know."

The new mama continued, "I ask good people, I don't want to sing with crap people, so I mean, I ask people who are great vocalists, but I'm not going to point out anyone. I have asked several people…Sometimes I feel like I have the plague, or leprosy, they're like, 'If you get too close…' I don't know."

Clarkson later said she was making a joke, but if there are any artists out there who chose against working on this album—you really missed out.

Listen to the new tracks above and don't forget to pick up Piece by Piece on March 3!
