Reba McEntire - "Because of You" Music Video

Reba McEntire -

Kelly Clarkson re-recorded her hit song “Because of You” with country singer Reba McEntire for McEntire‘s album Duets, out September 2007.

The song is the first single off the album. Somehow, the music video is better than the song. But then again, the original is better than the cover.

Watch Reba and Kelly‘s “Because of You” music video below!

    Kelly should be more concerned about re-recording her new album that’s about to come out because I hear it sucks bad and the first two songs she released don’t make me want to run out and buy anything with her name on it.

  • rhayssa

    kelly looks gorgeous,amazing,this video made me cry like a baby

  • rhayssa

    skankyHo fock you,the album is the best of the decade its just amazing

  • T

    She goes look great.

  • http://blackromancereader.wordpress.com/ Angela

    I guess she’s using this to get into the country music demographic. Sorry Kelly, just because you’re getting bad press doesn’t mean you should jump to another genre of music to hide from it. I can bet that if My December(which is a good album–grim, but good) was receiveing tons of great press she wouldn’t be trying to run to country music.

    And anyways, the song sounds exactly the same if Reba didn’t have a twang to her voice (Kelly still has no twang).

  • laura

    this made me cry…excellent job by both ladies.

  • Lelo

    much better than the live version they did at the cmas? or wherever. I still think kelly owns the song and no one can really do it better. I give props to kelly for standing up against the industry. Everyone thought she would fail being an american idol and she didn’t. She still has tons of fans and she isn’t skeletal. She does her own music becuase she is an artist. She breaks the molds that we see too much of. Success does not mean following the recipe the industry puts out. The britneys of today are gone by tomorrow and only the strong(kelly) stand tall.

  • freakoid

    kelly will NEVER be a reba.

  • rhayssa

    thanks God for she never be a old ugly lady

    You know, the negativity doesn’t really bother me that much.

    Because if you really didn’t care, and thought Kelly and/or Reba weren’t good, then you would never comment at all.

    The opposite of liking something isn’t hate (which is being shown on this page). It’s indifference.

    So keep on hating…it makes me laugh.

    And as for the video – I like it. It’s definitely a different way to look at the song than Kelly originally intended, but it’s done so well. Kudos to Kelly, Reba, and the director.

  • selwyse

    Kelly looks good (well, except the still picture makes her arms look cottage cheesy) and i love her make up and clothes. Reba looks a bit . .drag queen-y. But I like the twang her voice adds to the song.

    and I Love the video! So sad..

  • Yari

    WONDEFUL,
    LOVE IT!!!!

  • http://justjared.com alexandrina

    Love Reba and I love her T.V. show it is so funny!!!!!!!!!Is her show still on the air or are the shows just repeats.Does any one know?

  • http://tiff.ilumine.net TiFF

    She’s gross

  • Amy

    I heard Reba

    Repeats on Lifetime 4 times a night. My roomie and I have an addiction.

  • Amy

    That should say that I HEART Reba. Not heard.

  • cb

    I love Miss Reba…full stop.

  • Brandon

    so…1st off, I LOVE THIS! I think it’s amazing…and to Angela who posted

    “Sorry Kelly, just because you’re getting bad press doesn’t mean you should jump to another genre of music to hide from it. I can bet that if My December(which is a good album–grim, but good) was receiveing tons of great press she wouldn’t be trying to run to country music.”

    This is a song off of REBA’s new cd…NOT kelly’s therefor Kelly didn’t really have a ton to do with this being a single…her and reba are friends and Reba obviously asked her to do a song with her…so Kelly isn’t trying to hide anything.

  • stephanie

    I love this video its so sad . kelly looks great in it and i have to say great acting kelly .I wanted to cry when she took off the glasses and saw the black eye and then him beinging rough with her. And kelly ablum dose not suck its actually really good i already listen to it and she not trying to go into another kind of music cause someting bad .

    Kelly always have like country and i think she could really pull it off and one of her cds in the furture will be country she said she always wants to make a different cd thats another reason i’m fan . AND TO THOSE WHO HATING STOP HATING LEAVE KELLY ALONE PLEASE.And kelly is not fat she normal just cause not a toothpick don’t mean she fat i seen a picture of her in overalls and you can tell she lose some weigth she looks great . Heres a link http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/4251/kcpa5gp2.gif that was just taken.

  • Lelo

    Darn just when I give her props about breaking molds she admits to cosmo girl she ‘battled’ bulimia for 6 months. Either she’s drumming up publicity or trying to get everyone off her back about being a little over weight.

    I like te video and its better than the live version they did but I`m still fan of the original one

  • DM

    Amazing video. Even though I love the original, I think this version is much more powerful, and the video is amazing.

  • A:L

    Does anyone know who the guy is? DAMN, he’s hot. Anyone? Anyone???

    The original version is made of awesomeness but this version isn’t that bad either. It’s different. It caters for a different audience. So even though it’s the same song, I don’t think it’s an apple to apple comparison.

    And Kelly looks great. Reba too.

    But someone out there please put me out of my misery and tell me who the hot dude is.

  • sarah

    most incredible video. its beautiful.

  • thisgurl

    check out Kelly’s album MY DECEMBER on MTV’s THE LEAK!!!! It really is awesome!!!! I love this video with Reba.
    P.S. Kelly is one of the few artists who could even try to cross to country because of her soulful voice.

  • Ida

    I like this one better than the live version they did. The video is nice too. And Kelly looks good in it :)
    I never thought of this song being about abuse. But this video implicates that it is. Is it? Or is it just an interpretation? Or doens’t anybody know what the song is about exactly?

  • http://mamaslair.blogspot.com Mama Bear

    This version of “Because of You” is an interesting dual perspective. Of course, in this video, we know that when Kelly’s character sings, she’s hashing out her issues of trust since she’s with an abusive, philandering man. Reba’s character, however, seems to be singing to remind herself of the cautionary tale that’s unfolding with her friend/colleague.

    As far as the singing goes, I prefer Kelly’s original recording (she has such a powerfully raw voice), but this new video is pretty compelling.
    Great job ladies!

  • hamper

    love it! :)

  • heather

    WOW! I love them both and they sound great together!!
    the Video is awesome..I love it when they do things set in that time period…

  • Jackie0

    that was a great combo…reba and kelly .All i have to say is i love it . love it ..love it

  • Katie

    best video ive seen in years

  • SweetyKat

    I love Kelly’s and Reba’s music. I’ll bet the song is beautiful (can’t hear it yet, no speakers on my computer at work). A lot of people have been complaining about Kelly’s man-hate songs. I saw a pic here of her with Enrique Iglesias. The post said that they are good friends. I suggest that she make a beautiful duet with him about love to help with that. What do you guys think?

  • lilflowa

    Luv country sound

  • Annaleise

    I love Reba! Thanks for posting this!

  • Mrs. Fugly

    Both, have amazing vocal range. Both, sound great singing together. Suck ass video!

  • mj

    Beautiful and so sad. Kelly looks absolutely gorgeous.

  • Ryan

    Oh wow. I was all ready to hate that, but it was pretty good. I did love the video treatment of the song. Framing me as a duet does provide some extra levels of interpretation that were treated visually in the video.

    Good job all around.

  • Fhaid

    Love it! but i love the original better, this video is edited better than the original, but i’m just not into Reba’s voice. i love kelly though, and for those who are saying that her album “sucked”, it didn’t, and to all his opinion, but get real. that album is one of the best personal albums ever. i love it! even though there might not be #1′s on it, but who gives a #@%#! it’s personal songs, not people songs. i love it anyway.

    favs:
    Haunted, Be still, Hole, Sober, and the amazing kiss off song “Chivas”! totally love the album!

  • david

    Reba totally blows Kelly out of the water even on her own song. Reba can shape a song. Kelly needs to learn that loud is not the way to mezmerize with your voice.

  • shawn gregory

    Wonderful I love it.. Cant wait to see some of Reba’s other duets. I believe Kenny Chesney and her are working on one due out late summer. Not too sure of that. Good job Kelly and Reba.

  • Ashton

    Reba looks a little different, thank God it’s just a wig! Awsome vid, i smell a couple of awards!

  • http://www.tornadopat4sbcglobal.net AP44

    Go to h3ll SkankyHo and David and I hope rot there!! My December rox! Stupid jealous critics don’t know what they are talking about. Listen to the WHOLE albulm yourself and then say your opinion. And Kelly is an awsome singer! She did not win American Idol for no reason! OMG people, ya’ll are just stupid haters!
    And Reba dissers, leave Reba alone, she’s a legend, an icon of country music and a very respected woman! And ya’ll leave the way they look alone! They are normal people! They look fantastic!
    This video is so awsome and made me cry! I enjoyed every second of this video! And Thank you Brandon for your comment #18, Thank you.

    Note: Kelly suffered from bulimia in High School. That was like a long time ago! She snapped out of it and never wants to go back there. And that was in the news a long time ago but Cosmogirl just wants more money so they brought that old subject back up.
    P.S. BUY “MY DECEMBER”, KELLY’S NEW ALBUM, IN STORES JUNE 26!!!! IT’S AN AWSOME ALBULM!!!! BUY IT PLEASE!!!!

  • shawn gregory

    Alright Kelly fans we have to step up to the plate and start buying kellys cd.

  • Alley

    Reba, she’s UGLY there…Kelly looks great!…umm yeah reba is always gonna be better than Kelly but Kelly’s still great!!

  • Lora Booth

    I can not believe that the people are being so terrible and saying such awful things about these ladies and this song. I don,t see any one of you up there talking about a difficult subject that should concern us all. This song is a good message because of you the message does show how abuse put fear in many women, ruin relationships,cause depression and that many women return to a abusive situation because they do not know how to leave. THIS A GREAT song it brings tears to my eyes as I have remember patching up some of these women and some I have taken to the morgue. I am a nurse who saw women beaten to death by a spouse, boyfriend or just for fun.Some made it through. Reba,Kelly gratulation on a job well done.I am looking forward to seeing you in concert in Puyallup WA.
    God Bless You Both!

  • deano

    kelly is so amazing, why does everyone keep making fun of her has anyone seen how nice she is? her new album is my fav of all time better than breakaway in my opinion because her voice sounds better and stuff. this video is also real good, i think kelly sounds nicer to my ears than that reba woman but htis is still really good. i aint seen this on t.v. yet

  • CASSANDRIA GANTT

    I absolutley love it! I am a survivor of abuse and it really hit the spot. I love Reba and I love Kelly and I really love them together.
    I think the way they did the video was awesome. I love the old clothes and makeup.
    WAY TO GO!!!!!
    and the only reason Kelly is getting judges is becouse she is not a toothpick. You know you dont have to weigh 100 lbs to be good looking.
    And Reba way to go you pulled it off again….
    I LOVE YOU GUYS

  • LARRY LIGAMMARI

    I HAVE WATCHED THIS VIDEO -6- TIMES I LOVE IT. REBA AND KELLY DO AN AMAZING JOB….THIS IS A TIME ERA PIECE. I’VE ALSO SEEN KELLY’S VERSION OF THIS AND IT IS ALSO VERY GOOD. BUT DO HAVE TO SAY I’M PARTIAL TO THIS VIDEO, WHICH IS SET IN THE 30′s OR 40′S….AS FAR AS THE MAN IN THE VIDEO,
    DON’T REMEMBER HIS NAME BUT, HE USED TO BE ON
    “THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS” AS DANNY ROMALATI.
    WELL AGAIN THE SONG IS GREAT BUT THE VIDEO IS MUCH BETTER…..
    REBA AND KELLY ARE GREAT TOGETHER….
    KELLY IS VERY TALENETED OR SHE WOULDN’T BE IN THE BUSINESS….

  • brandie

    yeah yeah,great song,great video.

    PLEASE..who is the hot guy??Looks like Billy Zane..mmm.mmm..Dont care how big of a jerk he is in the video,i need him in my bed now!

  • Avoria

    Angela? Yeah, Reba added new words to the song. The country twang has very little to do with it; Reba changed parts of the song because they were awkward and didn’t fit right. THAT is what makes the duet version different from the other.
