[lastfm]Kelly Clarkson[/lastfm] has long been lauded as one of the most successful American Idol winners to date. Her second album, Breakaway, won the pop artist two Grammys at the 2006 awards ceremony, debuted at #3 on the U.S. charts, and remains Clarkson’s most successful album.
The fourth single from the album, “Because of You,” is still the biggest single ever to be released from an American Idol album. The song was inspired by Clarkson’s own life experiences, and was later reprised in a duet with country legend [lastfm]Reba McEntire[/lastfm].
