The song is an uplifting, catchy tune that is similar to 'Catch My Breath.' Yet, this song takes on a more dance-pop and electo-rock feel, especially in the beginning, when Clarkson vocalizes an inspirational set of lines on top of a club-like beat. The full-of-sound chorus makes this song Clarkson's latest pop anthem. However, the dance music doesn't overpower her strong voice, which comes through well as she sings "We are all misfits livin' in a world on fire." It's one of Clarkson's most fiery and inspirational songs, which says a lot since she's built her career around many empowering singles. 'People Like Us' is a song that many will probably find comfort in and is a perfect song to dance along with your friends to.
Kelly Clarkson is currently working on her sixth studio album, which she describes as lighter and happier than her previous work. For now, fans can sing along to 'People Like Us' on AOL Radio's New Pop First.
