According to the audience and sales tracking system: Nielson Sound Scan and Billboard.com, Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz has just reached the million mile marker since the release of the CD October 8, 2013-debuting in the top spot on Billboard 200 Albums Chart and having sold 270k copies in the first week out the gate. Even in its 29th week currently, the album still remains at #42 on Billboard’s 200.
Although it may seem like Miley went from Hannah Montana through to a complete metamorphosis overnight and into the wild and crazy Miley Cyrus that we’ve all grown to know, the transformation was actually gradual-as was her musical transformation, Bangerz is actually the 21 year-old’s fifth number one album.
Despite Miley appearing nude in the video off Bangerz’s first single “Wrecking Ball;” the song itself wore its title quite well, as, it’s just how the album, the single, and Miley’s transformation came in: [like a wrecking ball].
The song busted in to the top spot on Billboard Hot 100 after the video’s release.
Believe it or not however, of Cyrus’ five albums, her biggest selling album was the first soundtrack release for the Disney Channel’s show “Hannah Montana.” It was released in 2006 and sold over 3.7 million copies.
Hold your fire however, “Bangerz” is expected to explode and top that before all is sang [and done].
