Catch My Breath is the first single off of Kelly’s Greatest Hits Chapter 1 to be released in November. Kelly is a co-writer on the track that sings of what the past years of her career have been, nothing short of her catching her breath. It’s no secret that Kelly is one of the world’s biggest pop stars infamous for her ground shaking anthemic breakup songs that make girls everywhere want to fist pump in unison while screaming at their ex’s and throwing their possessions out of third story apartment buildings. Or just jam to in the car with the windows rolled up hoping no one hears them cry-screaming the lyrics.
Catch My Breath is the perfect combination of the sounds of Kelly’s greatest hits. Hints of Since U Been Gone, My Life Would Suck Without You and Behind These Hazel Eyes can be heard in the new single. Still sewn throughout the lyrics are messages of “I’m better than this,” “I’m going to do what’s right for me” and “I won’t be told what to do.”
If Kelly continues to churn out the hits like this one, she’ll have another few Greatest Hits compilations to release in the next few years. It’s not like the audience of angry girlfriends has dwindled. You go Kelly, empowering girls to kick ass and take names, one anthemic song at a time.
