Meaning of Life is the album Kelly Clarkson was destined to make, a career defining collection of smart and sensual soul-inspired pop. For her eighth studio effort - and follow-up to 2015's chart-topping Piece By Piece - Clarkson united a stellar team of top songwriters and producers to collaborate on her Atlantic debut, among them past collaborators Jason Halbert, Jesse Shatkin and Grammy Award-winning "Producer of the Year" Greg Kurstin as well as first time collaborators Mick Schultz, The Monarch and Nick Ruth among others. As if that weren't enough, Clarkson is joined by members of the legendary Earth Wind & Fire on album standout "Whole Lotta Woman." "Love So Soft sees Clarkson doing what she does best: serving up powerful, seemingly effortless vocals over a catchy tune. After dabbling in rock and country, it's nice to see Clarkson dig into the rich potential of this particular vein of jazz R&B. Her voice is as big as ever," wrote the New York Times while Billboard proclaimed, "If 'Love So Soft' is any indication, Kelly Clarkson's Atlantic Records debut, Meaning Of Life, is going to be massive."
