Atlantic Records in partnership with STXfilms have announced today’s premiere of the official companion video to Kelly Clarkson’s “Broken & Beautiful,” the stunning hit single from the eagerly awaited “UGLYDOLLS ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK.” Earlier this morning, an exclusive first look at the official video aired during NBC’s TODAY. The empowering colorful clip, which stars both Clarkson and her adorable daughter River Rose alongside exclusive animation of the film’s lead character Moxy (played by Clarkson herself), can be viewed HERE. Blending live action and custom animation, the video also features a cameo of a personalized “UglyDoll” version of global superstar artist/producer/DJ Marshmello, who produced the song alongside Steve Mac. The “UGLYDOLLS ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK” arrives at all DSPs tomorrow, April 26th; STXfilms’ highly anticipated animated musical comedy, UglyDolls, arrives in theatres everywhere on May 3rd.
Composed for UglyDolls, “Broken & Beautiful” is co-written by P!NK alongside Johnny McDaid, Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” and P!NK’s “What About Us”), and Marshmello and produced by Steve Mac & Marshmello. “Broken & Beautiful” is available now at all DSPs HERE; the uplifting track is also accompanied by a custom animated lyric video and 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 Stone praising 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 Times declared “Broken & Beautiful” to be “a classic empowerment anthem…from the forthcoming animated movie UglyDolls, in which Clarkson plays a plush toy seeking self-acceptance,” while GQ named the single to its “The 4.5 Songs You Need to Hear This Week,” proclaiming simply, “Mark my words: Kelly Clarkson will EGOT.”
Clarkson – who stars in UglyDolls as the film’s lead character, Moxy – will host and perform “Broken & Beautiful” at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards, set for broadcast on NBC next Wednesday, May 1st (check local listings).
