Fun.’s “We Are Young” & Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” Top Singles Of 2012 So Far

Fun.’s “We Are Young”, a song that finds the trio paired up with Janelle Monae, is currently #1 on the Hot 100 for a third week. Billboard reports today that the bombastic pop-rock number, which has moved a total of 2.39 million paid downloads, is the best-selling single of the year to date. “We Are Young” is just slightly ahead of 2012’s runner-up, “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” (2.25 million) by Kelly Clarkson. It’s probably worth noting that, radio play aside, both songs were covered by the Glee cast, and both feature in car commercials. Coincidence?
