Adele may still be the top diva on Billboard‘s Top 200 album chart, but over on the Hot 100 she’s been bumped off by Kelly Clarkson. The two Grammy nominees trade places as Adele’s third 21 single “Set Fire To The Rain”, which previously spent two weeks at #1, now cedes the peak position to Super Bowl singer Clarkson’s “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)”. This marks the American Idol winner’s third chart-topper, following 2002′s “A Moment Like This” and 2009′s “My Life Would Suck Without You”.
Meanwhile, Madonna’s lead MDNA single “Give Me All Your Luvin’” crashes into the Hot 100 at #13, giving the Super Bowl halftime performer her 56th single to appear on the chart and her first Top 20 hit since “4 Minutes” reached #3 in 2008. Billboard notes that Madge is now tied with Dionne Warwick for the second-most appearances on the Hot 100 among women. They both trail Aretha Franklin, who’s racked up 73 entries on the main singles chart.
“Give Me All Your Luvin’” sold 115,000 digital downloads between Friday morning, when it was made available for purchase on iTunes, and Sunday evening’s chart cut-off time. Currently the song is perched at #7 on iTunes.
Madonna’s first appearance on the Hot 100 came nearly 30 years ago, when “Holiday” peaked at #16 in 1983.
