Kelly Clarkson, the first winner of American Idol, is back with a new single "My Life Would Suck Without You." This is culled from her upcoming fourth album titled All I Ever Wanted.
The single "My Life Would Suck Without You" catapults from the #97 position it held the past week to the #1 spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. This feat breaks the record held by Britney Spears' "Womanizer" which went from #96 to #1 in a week's time. The single's jump also marks the largest leap to #1 in the chart's 50-year history. Kelly previously held the #1 spot on the Hot 100 in 2002 with "A Moment Like This," which went from #52 to #1.
In addition, the song holds #1 spot on the Digital Chart with 279,605 sold in its first week. This is the 3rd biggest digital song debut for a female artist.
The release of "All I Ever Wanted" under Sony Music Entertainment has moved up to March 9th.
In her career to date, Clarkson has sold 16 million albums worldwide. She is the recipient of 2 Grammy Awards, 2 American Music Awards, 2 MTV Awards and 11 Billboard Awards.
The music video of "My Life Would Suck Without You" will premiere soon on MYX music channel in the Philippines.
