Kelly Clarkson’s Chart Position Gets ‘Stronger,’ Lands at No. 1
The song is Clarkson's third No. 1 single (previous chart toppers were 'A Moment Like This' in 2002 and 'My Life Would Suck Without You' in 2009). In addition to topping the Hot 100 for the first time this week, it's also the track's second consecutive week atop the Digital Songs chart. What's more, 'Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)' is the week's top airplay gainer, jumping from No. 33 to No. 15 on the radio chart. You go, Kel!
Clarkson's success is in no doubt at least somewhat indebted to her flawless performance at the Super Bowl. The 'American Idol' alum's rendition of the National Anthem was universally lauded as one of the best, most respectful and most respectable in recent history.
The cute Texan has been a busy bee lately, and her schedule is only getting more and more hectic. Yesterday, Clarkson released a new EP, 'Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) [The Remixes].' Fans can now listen to eight new reworkings of the No. 1 hit. Clarkson is currently on her 'Stronger' tour, which wraps up in April. She recently released a country-tinged version of her 'Stronger' lead single, 'Mr. Know It All.' and, she'll even appear on 'The Voice' with pal Blake Shelton this spring!
Clarkson's next single will be 'I Forgive You.' If her track record is any indication, we expect that to top the charts too!
