Kelly Clarkson's 'Know It All' Debuts on Hot 100, Rihanna's 'Cheers' Rises

As Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger," featuring Christina Aguilera, rebounds to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, Kelly Clarkson's "Mr. Know It All" launches on the chart as the list's highest debut at No. 18. Rihanna, meanwhile, banks another Hot 100 top 10, "Cheers (Drink to That)," from her album "Loud."

Clarkson previews her fifth studio album, "Stronger," due Oct. 25, by notching the second-highest debut among her 17 Hot 100 chart entries. She began at a higher rank only with "Never Again," which arrived (and peaked) at No. 8 the week of May 12, 2007.

"Know" enters Digital Songs at No. 9 with 107,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The track is likewise the top new entry on Radio Songs, where it starts at No. 65 with 17 million in all-format audience (up 79%), according to Nielsen BDS. The song rises 30-20 as the Greatest Gainer on the Adult Pop Songs radio airplay chart and launches at No. 29 on Pop Songs.

Clarkson premiered "Know" Aug. 31 via webcast on her official website ahead of its Sept. 5 release to retail.

As the original "American Idol" queen charges onto the Hot 100, the chart's top song is again by two of the coaches - Adam Levine and Aguilera - of rival music reality competition program "The Voice."

After dropping to No. 2 last week, "Jagger" returns for a second frame atop the Hot 100, similarly rebounding (3-1) for a second week at No. 1 on Digital Songs (220,000, up 6%). The song claims Airplay Gainer honors on the Hot 100 courtesy of its 8-5 push on Radio Songs (104 million, up 20%).

Last week's Hot 100 No. 1, Adele's "Someone Like You," retreats 1-2 after soaring to the summit from No. 19 a week ago, a coronation fueled by reaction to her performance of the song on the MTV Video Music Awards Aug. 28. The piano-and-vocal-only ballad - the first such No. 1 in the Hot 100's 53-year history - slides 1-2 on Digital Songs (213,000, down 22%). "Someone" climbs 19-13, however, on Radio Songs (61 million, up 33%). The song is the Greatest Gainer on Pop Songs (19-16) and Adult Contemporary (16-14), while pushing 5-4 on Triple A, 10-6 on Adult Pop Songs and 35-28 on Rock Songs.

Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" descends 5-7 on the Hot 100 and Lady Gaga's "You and I" falls 6-8.
