Hope you all had a great 4th and Kelly Clarkson received some great news: her single “Stronger” has sold more digital copies than any “Idol” singer’s song: more than 3.5 million copies, exceeding Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” by 1,000 copies.
Naturally, more and more people now buy digital singles today than in 2006, but that’s still an impressive number of copies.
The Hollywood Reporter, which isn’t really known to covering music particularly well, was the source of this information.
How broad was the power of “Stronger”? It was No. 1 on 11 different Billboard charts.
Carrie still has sold more albums to date: 13.2 million vs. 11.6 million for Kelly. But Kelly has sold more than 24.1 million digital songs vs. 22.5 million for Carrie.
- Both Jennifer Hudson and Phillip Phillips performed last night. MJ taped both.
