The uplifting track is fast proving a massive success coming in as this week’s “Most Added” new single at Hot AC radio stations nationwide. Along with its popular success, the single earned immediate critical applause upon its release, with Rolling Stonepraising it as a “sleek new electro-pop song…(‘Broken & Beautiful’) utilizes a quiet-loud dynamic, with Clarkson belting in a high register on the chorus.” The New York Timesdeclared “Broken & Beautiful” to be “a classic empowerment anthem…from the forthcoming animated movieUglyDolls, in which Clarkson plays a plush toy seeking self-acceptance,” while GQnamed the single to its “The 4.5 Songs You Need to Hear This Week,” proclaiming simply, “Mark my words: Kelly Clarkson will EGOT.”

How so? It is another empowering anthem with an uplifting message. ‘Even when I’m at my worst, when I’ve been down so long it hurts, when I’m feeling ugly, know I gotta love me. Cause I’m, I’m still beautiful,’ the siren declares. The release has me even more excited to hear the rest of the star-studded collection.”
