Kelly Clarkson has released her cover of SWV’s ’90s classic, “Weak.”
The pop star showcased her R&B chops on the soulful cover, which stayed largely faithful to the original. However, Clarkson did take some liberties with the phasing of the verses and also played around with the lyrics: “’Cause my heart starts beating triple time / With thoughts of loving you on my mind / I can’t figure out just what to do / When the problem here is you.”
Clarkson covered “Weak” for the “Kellyoke” segment of her daytime talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show. She previously sang Lady A’s “Need You Now” for the segment, as well as songs by Adele, U2, Coldplay and more.
