Backed by his band Y’all, Clarkson delivered a soulful rendition of the track, keeping it largely close to the original version.
“So I like what I see when I look at me/ When I walk past the mirror/ Don’t stress through the night, at some point in my life/ Don’t worry if you feel it/ Got my head on straight foot, I got my vibe right/ I ain’t gonna let you kill it/ You see I wouldn’t change my life, my life’s just fine,” Clarkson sings with the help of backup vocalists before launching into the track’s chorus.
“Just Fine” was released as the lead single from Blige’s 2007 album Growing pains. The uplifting R&B track spent a total of 22 weeks on the all-genre chart Billboard Hot 100 chart and peaked at No. 22. The song gained even more success on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, where it spent a full 63 weeks, peaking at No. 3.
