Kelly Clarkson, ‘Mr. Know It All’ (DJ Kue Remix) – Song Review

Kelly Clarkson‘s latest, ‘Mr. Know It All,’ is an upbeat song, but it’s not made for the clubs. The DJ Kue remix, however, is a different story.

The remix is rather inventive in that it doesn’t just toss a beat over the original song, nor does it sound the same the whole way through. The verses feature pulsing synth blips, while the chorus brings the arrival of a massive synth bassline that adds extra intensity to Clarkson’s kiss-off message, “You don’t know a thing about me.”

Three minutes in, there’s a complete A cappella breakdown with Clarkson singing the chorus. When the music returns, it’s accompanied by a left-field saxophone solo, in perhaps the most lively use of sax we’ve heard since ‘Waiting for a Star to Fall.’ Good stuff!

DJ Kue has been doing a number of high-profile remixes of artists like Jennifer Lopez, Wiz Khalifa, the Script, Porcelain Black and Nicole Scherzinger. Clarkson’s ‘Mr. Know It All’ has climbed to No. 19 on the singles chart as she continues to promote it on shows like ‘The View‘ and ‘Dancing With the Stars.’
