KELLY CLARKSON - War Paint

This song is from the album Piece By Piece(2015), released on Feb 27, 2015.
I loved the production of this song. The background music had some vocal effects that simulated the war environment, especially the war cries. I loved that effect that the producer brought into the song. The vocals by Kelly were awesome as usual. The rhythm felt really tight and solid, while the bass felt sleazy. There could have been some improvements in the bass area, which would have made the song even more enjoyable. I really did like the breakdown in between the chorus, it was a great idea.
