Piece by piece, River Rose is following in mom Kelly Clarkson's footsteps.

The "Miss Independent" singer debuted the deluxe version of her album Chemistry Sept. 22, revealing ella's collaborator close to her heart: her 9-year-old daughter who sings on the track "You Do n't Make Me Cry."

River first appears in the beginning of the track, showcasing autotuned vocal runs before giving away to her mother to take over the pop song. But in addition to opening the song, she also closes it, popping in with an adorable, "The End!"

As for what the song itself is about? Well, it fits in with Chemistry's theme of self-love after a relationship. On the track, The "Since U Been Gone" artist—who shares River and son Remy Alexander7, with ex-husband Brandon Blackstock—belts out a slew of empowering lines which cast light on her newfound independence with lyrics including: "I'd rather be alone than blue / Know it ain't easy but watch me / Walk the high road without you."

Kelly also gave followers a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the song, revealing on X (formerly known as Twitter) Sept. 19, that her daughter recorded her part of her at a very young age.
