Kelly Clarkson kicked off Wednesday’s episode (June 8) of The Kelly Clarkson Show with her own spin of The Weeknd and Ariana Grande‘s “Save Your Tears.”
“I saw you dancin’ in a crowded room/ You look so happy when I’m not with you/ Then you saw me, caught you by surprise/ A single teardrop fallin’ from your eye/ Well take me back ’cause I wanna stay/ Save your tears for another/ I realize that it’s much too late/ And you deserve someone better,” Clarkson sang in her rendition of the breakup anthem.
Originally released in August 2020 as a single off The Weeknd’s After Hours, the solo version of the track peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. However, once Grande jumped on the official remix, the song catapulted to No. 1 and became both artists’ sixth career chart-topper.
