Superstar Kelly Clarkson’s 4th album All I Ever Wanted (19 Recordings / RCA Records) debuts at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 with 254,671 albums sold and #1 on the Digital Album Chart. This marks Kelly’s first #1 album since her debut in 2002 and all four of Kelly’s albums have debuted in the Top 3.
Clarkson’s hit single “My Life Would Suck Without You” has already sold over 1 million units in the U.S. alone and dominated the Billboard Hot 100 chart coming in at #1 for two weeks in a row. Earlier this month the song catapulted from the #97 position to the #1 spot on the Hot 100 chart, breaking the previous record. The single’s jump also marked 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 and held that position for 2 weeks.
In her career to date, Clarkson has sold 20 million albums worldwide. She is the recipient of 2 Grammy Awards, 2 American Music Awards, 2 MTV Awards and 11 Billboard Awards.
