Life certainly doesn't suck for Kelly Clarkson
Her new single, "My Life Would Suck Without You," will break records on Thursday when it makes the largest leap to No. 1 in the Billboard chart's 50-year history.
The song moves to No. 1 from No. 97 on the Hot 100 chart after selling 280,000 digital downloads in its first week out, according to Billboard.com.
Clarkson, 26, has set the record once before: Her 2002 single "A Moment Like This" – the American Idol
Season 1 victory track – jumped from No. 52 to No. 1 in a single week.
Since then, the largest-leap record has been broken five times, most recently by Britney Spears
's "Womanizer," which jumped from No. 96 to No. 1 last year.
Fans got a sneak peek at Clarkson's new video

The song is off Clarkson's album All I Ever Wanted
, due in stores March 17.
