...Already Gone.

PERFECT choice for a single. Its beautifully heartbreaking. Kelly's vocals are incredible in it. Here's a live version of the song and below that is the album version.

What do you guys think? Yay or nay?

I love One Republic, so it's no surprise that I love this song too - Ryan Tedder produced and co-wrote the song. I think that's one of her best songs on the album.

I agree completely. This was actually written by Kelly and Ryan prior to Beyonces Halo which its compared to. Tedder only wrote it for Beyonce after she heard Already Gone and demanded a song like that be written fo her.

While Halo isn't bad it lacks the heartwrenching emotion that Kelly expresses. Its more of a 'Hi I can sing' showcase for Knowles.

I like both songs and singers so I don't care if they sound similar. I approve anything that Tedder does. :)

Kelly Clarkson's New Single Controversy: All She Never Wanted

Posted Mon Jul 27, 2009 12:15pm PDT by Lyndsey Parker in Reality Rocks

Poor Kelly Clarkson. It seems like the girl just can't catch a break. Even though she's returned to her sugary pop sound after famously feuding with her label over artistic differences, she's still battling Sony-BMG over her latest single. And once again, when it comes to this feud, I am Team Kelly. I'm always Team Kelly.

We all remember what happened in 2007, when the original American Idol tried to shed her "America's sweetheart" image by going for a darker, edgier, grittier sound on her largely self-penned (and largely underrated) third album, My December, and a massive battle with Sony-BMG label honcho Clive Davis ensued. So for her recently released fourth album, All I Ever Wanted, Kelly got back in line and went back to pure pop, letting slick songwriters-for-hire like Sweden's Max Martin provide her with hits, hits, hits--like the record-breaking, "Since U Been Gone"-soundalike smash, "My Life Would Suck Without You." But her life is to starting to suck again, it seems--as the album's third single, "Already Gone," has created yet another Kelly controversy.

Apparently, according to an interview she did on Canadian radio this past weekend, Kelly fought once again with her label over "Already Gone," a song she co-wrote with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (the Midas-touched man behind such radio smashes as Leona Lewis's "Bleeding Love," Jordin Sparks' "Battlefield," Jennifer Lopez's "Do It Well," and Natasha Bedingfield's "Love Like This," among other hits). She told Canada's CBC that she battled to keep the ballad from being included on All I Ever Wanted after she realized it bore an uncanny resemblance to Beyonce's "Halo"--a song that, perhaps not coincidentally, was also written by Ryan Tedder.

Kelly even claimed that only when the album was completed did she get to hear the final recording--and it was then that she noticed that that the same backing track from "Halo" was used on "Already Gone." She then phoned Ryan Tedder in a rage, telling him: "I don't understand. Why would you do that? No one's going to be sitting at home, thinking, 'Man, Ryan Tedder gave Beyonce and Kelly the same track to write to.' No, they're just going to be saying I ripped someone off."

But despite her protests, All I Ever Wanted was released as-is, without her permission and with "Already Gone" still on the tracklisting. Which is something Kelly never wanted.

"I fought and fought [to stop the song's release]," she said in the Canadian interview. "In the end, they're releasing it without my consent...It sucks, but it's one of those things I have no control over. I already made my album. At this point, the record company can do whatever they want with it."

Now the song is this season's So You Think You Can Dance exit theme, and it's Kelly's official third single, too--two other high-profile label decisions she's probably not very happy about.

It is true that "Already Gone" and "Halo" are extremely similar. Even Kelly is not denying that. But as a longtime Kelly supporter, I urge fans to try to appreciate the song on its own merits. I fully believe her side of the story here, and would hate the dubious judgment and lack of support of her record label to once again potentially derail her career just as she has successfully launched a full-scale "comeback." (Although, of course, I never thought she ever went away.)

And once again, I commend Kelly for being so outspoken in the media, regardless of the risks involved. I love it that Kelly Clarkson never keeps her mouth shut, whether it's to sing with that amazing voice of hers or to speak her mind.

Its a shame.

Kelly co wrote Already Gone long before Ryan wrote Halo for Beyonce, but because Halo was released first, Kelly is going to get the backlash.

Its an incredible song and should be judged on its own merits. I just hope it is.

On a happy note, the music video was released. Its a subtly moving video, IMO. Kelly makes one beautiful ghost.

I beleive Halo was written quite a while ago, Tedder initially offered it to Leona Lewis, who rejected it, and Beyonce heard about it and liked it. She added her own lyrics and co-produced the song with Tedder.

Neither Kelly or Beyonce should be blamed for any of this. Tedder should be blame for recycling crap and giving it to two different artists. Granted, every producer has their own unique sound, but it's not like Tedder even tried to make the production on either song all that different.

Both Beyonce and Kelly are Sony Music artists as well...

Good point. The plus side is that both singers have the talent to make it sound like their own style. Beyonce wails as usual, and while good at it, she always lacks emotion.

Kelly really portrays the hurt and the sadness in her song, which moves me more.

Word is that in the original edit of the video, she falls down the stairs at the end and dies, thus explaining the whole "ghost Kelly" theme in the video, but once again, the label outweighed everyone's vote and cut it out of the final version.

Not true, in any way.

tedder wrote it and gave it to Leona Lewis. She couldnt record it because she was busy. RT then took it to B who added some of her own style/lyrics to it.

I like both. Already gone is great, Halo is great. I do think they sound a lot alike, but i dont think thats a bad thing. IMHO, 90% of Tedders songs sound alike and i like the way they sound.

Kelly bitches about a lot of [[email protected]#$%^&*]. I love it, lol. Im glad the record label released this, its by far the best song on her otherwise blah album.

The video is stupid. They shoulda left the scene explaining why there is a ghost Kelly.

But if we are talking Halo vs AG? Halo wins for me by a landslide. I cant freakin stand Beyonce, but she brought it for that song. The lyrics are perfect, the music is perfect, all of its perfect. But again, i really like AG.

I don't see the big deal of songs being similar - if it's good, it's good (which I think both are). Producers re-use beats or take beats from another song all the time, like who cares.

It matters when the masses think you stole the music or the beat or the concept.

It's one of the biggest reasons why Loverboy(Mariah's Lead Single from Glitter) sucked so hardcore is because she was forced to use another 80's beat after Mottola gave the sample idea to J-Lo for "I'm Real."

But maybe that's justice for her and/or her songwriter stealing Xscape, "One of Those Love Songs" and using it for "Thank God I Found You."

Yesterday, in an interview with Chicago's Kiss FM, Kelly Clarkson revealed that she is already at work on her fifth solo album, and we may see a late 2010 release. She says the next album will be really different. That would seem nothing new. All I Ever Wanted, My December, and Breakaway are all significantly different from each other. The primary thing they have in common is Kelly Clarkson's stellar voice.

Kelly Clarkson seems to have calmed any of the fears about whether she was a long-term commercially viable artist after the introspective My December sold poorly. Her current album All I Ever Wanted has already sold nearly as many copies as My December in just over six months of release, and it has generated three top 20 pop singles while My December produced only one.
