Martina McBride is releasing an album on April 8, and one of the songs on it features Kelly Clarkson.
The song is called “In the Basement” and was originally sung by Etta James and her friend Sugar Pie Desanto in 1966.
According to Glamour, it is an upbeat song that is about celebrating strong, independent women who are taking a stand in the world.
According to AceShowbiz, Kelly Clarkson first mentioned the collaboration back in January in a tweet in which she said, "Recorded a soulful song with @martinamcbride and I have to say, it's pretty bad a**. A nice distraction from being pregnant! Thanks girl!"
The album will have 12 songs which include covers of soul and R&B songs and the album is entitled Everlasting. On the album, there is a duet with Gavin DeGraw as well, according to Business Standard.
McBride was signed to RCA Nashville in 1991, and made her debut the following year as a neo-traditionalist country singer with the single, "The Time Has Come." McBride has won the Country Music Association's "Female Vocalist of the Year" award four times and the Academy of Country Music's "Top Female Vocalist" award three times.
