Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)‘ returns to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for a 3rd non-consecutive week, dethroning Katy Perry’s ‘Part Of Me‘, which slides down to # 4 after debuting at # 1 last week. ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)‘ is Kelly’s 3rd # 1 single on the Hot 100, following her 2002 début ‘A Moment Like This‘ and 2009’s ‘My Life Would Suck Without You‘.
Adele stays put at # 2 for a 4th consecutive week with her former # 1 ‘Set Fire To The Rain‘. The track also remains the most played song in the US for the third week in a row, topping the Radio Songs Chart which takes into account radio airplay in the US.
It’s boy-band mania again in the US, as The Wanted’s new single ‘Glad You Came‘ blasts straight into the top 5 of the charts, vaulting from # 23 to # 5 this week following the Glee cast cover of the song last week.
