On July 3, it was revealed on the official Billboard website that reigning Academy of Country Music (ACM) "Female Vocalist of the Year" Miranda Lambert and country powerhouse Carrie Underwood, topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts with their duet single "Somethin' Bad." Last week, the song sat at No. 18 on the charts, yet it catapulted all the way to No. 1 after charting for six weeks. This marks Lambert's fifth career chart-topping single on those charts, and Underwood's thirteenth, both of which are impressive milestones.

Their spitfire song also made its way into the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and it sits at No. 19 for the week ending July 12. It moved up exponentially since in the previous week, it was listed at No. 84. On the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts, is already a Top 25 hit.

"Somethin' Bad" was co-penned by such songwriters as Chris DeStefano, Brett James and Priscilla Renea, and it was subsequently co-produced by Frank Liddell, Chuck Ainlay and Glenn Worf. It is a track on Lambert's latest studio album, "Platinum," which was released via her record label, RCA Nashville.

Both songstresses heavily promoted the song by playing it live at this year's Billboard Music Awards, that took place on May 18, and more recently, on June 4, at the CMT Music Awards.

Their song's music video was directed by acclaimed country and pop music video director Trey Fanjoy and it may be seen by clicking here. It has been well-received by fans and viewers, racking up over seven million views since its June 26 release.
