Stronger is the second album by Finnish pop/pop rock singer Hanna Pakarinen, released in Finland by RCA on September 7, 2005. The album was preceded by the lead single "Kiss Of Life" in August 2005 and followed later in the year by promotional singles "Stronger Without You" and "Damn You". "Run", a popular song from her debut album was also included as a bonus track.

The album peaked at number two on the Finnish albums chart and in November 2005 was certified gold, with sales to date of 16,473 copies.[1]

Commercial Performance[edit]

Stronger debuted and peaked at number two in its first week of release, the same peak position as Pakarinen's first album When I Become Me. Unlike its predecessor however, Stronger held the number two spot for only one week, dropping to numbers six and ten in its second and third weeks on the official Top 40. It spent a total of seven weeks on the chart, ten weeks less than Pakarinen's debut. However it continued to sell steadily even when outside the Top 40, and in November 2005 was officially awarded gold status for sales in excess of 15,000 units.
