Kelly Clarkson Drops “I Dare You Single” In 6 Different Languages
American Idol OG winner and The Voice coach Kelly Clarkson has unveiled her brand new single “I Dare You” – available now via Atlantic Records. Penned by Natalie Hemby (The Highwomen, Kacey Musgraves), Laura Veltz (Dan + Shay, Maren Morris) and Ben West (P!nk, Lady Antebellum) with production by longtime collaborator Jesse Shatkin (Sia, Jennifer Lopez), the track is Kelly’s most ambitious release to date.
“I Dare You” arrives alongside a five-track collection of multi-language duet versions, sung with a esteemed group of internationally acclaimed vocalists in their native tongue. Kelly is joined by Zaz (“Appelle Ton Amour” – French Version), Faouzia (“???????” – Arabic Version), Blas Cantó (“Te Reto A Amar” – Spanish Version), Glasperlenspiel (“Trau Dich” – German Version) and Maya Buskila (“??? ????” – Hebrew Version). The tracks encapsulate the song’s message of all-inclusivity. Kelly will also share a world premiere performance music video for “I Dare You” on today’s episode of her afternoon talker, The Kelly Clarkson Show, singing virtually with her global duet partners.
This is my favorite/hardest project that I’ve ever worked on
“This is my favorite/hardest project that I’ve ever worked on” explained Kelly. “It has always been a dream of mine, as I grew up singing in different languages, to find that perfect song, with the perfect message, to connect us all globally and then record that song with several other artists around the world in their native languages. We have put a lot of work into this as a team and decided to continue with our release date of this project because we feel like we all couldn’t be more connected right now across the world, and maybe this message will bring a little hope in this sometimes dark, and isolating time. Thank you so much to all the artists that worked on this with me. We hope everyone out there connects with this message and chooses love instead of fear. I dare you.”
