Kelly Clarkson's 'My Life Would Suck Without You' sets chart record


By Christopher Rocchio, 01/28/2009 

After making history for being crowned American Idol's first-ever champ in 2002, Kelly Clarkson is reportedly ready to once again add her name to the record books.

Clarkson's new single "My Life Would Suck Without You" is set to jump from No. 97 to the top spot on Billboard's Hot 100 chart -- a move that will be the biggest jump to No. 1 in the 50-year-old history of the singles chart, Billboard reported Wednesday.

"My Life Would Suck Without You" -- the first single off "All I Ever Wanted," Clarkson's fourth album which will be released on March 17 -- moved 280,000 digital downloads in its first week of availability to make its historic move to the chart's top spot. 

In addition, "My Life Would Suck Without You" will also be jumping from No. 58 to No. 38 on Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay chart and from No. 27 to No. 18 on its Mainstream Top 40 list.

Billboard's charts for last week's music sales and airplay activity will officially be released tomorrow.

"My Life Would Suck Without You" actually represents the second time Clarkson has set the record for largest jump to No. 1.  Back in October 2002, her Idol victory song "A Moment Like This" moved from No. 51 to No. 1 on the single sales chart. 

That record stood until May 2007, when Maroon 5's "Makes Me Wonder" jumped from No. 64 to the top spot and it has been broken four times since then -- most recently by Britney Spears' "Womanizer," which went from No. 96 to No. 1 last year.

"My Life Would Suck Without You" is the highest a Clarkson single has gone on the Billboard Hot 100 since "Since U Been Gone" peaked at No. 2 in April 2005.

Fox will air a "sneak peek" of "My Life Would Suck Without You's" music video during one of the commercial breaks in tonight's American Idol eighth-season episode.  Following the preview, the full video will be available to watch online and via AT&T Mobility phones and AT&T U-verse.
