The 40-year-old singer Kelly has joined forces with Dolly, 76, to record a brand-new duet version of ‘9 to 5’ – which Dolly first released as a single in 1980 – and Kelly has heaped praise on the music icon.

She shared: “I am so honored that Dolly asked me to re-imagine this iconic song, ‘9 to 5’, with her! She is so talented, an inspiration to all women, and one of the sweetest people you will ever meet!” She is an inspiration to all women.

Similarly, Dolly also loved the experience of working with Kelly, admitting that she can make any song “come alive”. She said: “Nobody sings like Kelly Clarkson. She makes any song come alive. I love her voice on ‘9 to 5’ and I am so proud I got to sing with her on it.”
