"Love So Soft" leads Kelly's new album, "Meaning of Life." The lead single mixes R&B, trap and soul music. Kelly garnered praise for the song's departure from her typical pop-rock sound.  

Below are some notable lyrics, per Genius

🎶 Love so soft, you ain't had nothin' softer. Break it, then you buy it, and it sure gonna cost ya.Love so soft that you can't rub off. You gon' love it, if you try it. Got you hooked, now you're caught up. Love so soft, so soft (so soft).Love so soft, so soft (so soft).🎶

Critics like Newsday's Glenn Gamboa are praising Kelly's new album, highlighting that she mixes old sounds with something. Newsday gave the album four stars. Glenn writes:

Clarkson isn’t content with simply mining old-school soul, though. She looks to innovate, as she does in “Whole Lotta Woman,” where she takes a throwback soul arrangement and adds intricate, current R&B phrasing and lyrics like “I’m a strong, bad-ass chick with classic confidence” to create something new.
Clarkson has had finer singles, but “Meaning of Life” is the best album of her career, a chance to declare her ambitions and deliver on them time and time again for her most cohesive album yet.
