Miley Cyrus' 'Bangerz' Hits 1 Million In Sales
She nets her sixth set to pass the vaunted sales milestone
Miley Cyrus' album "Bangerz" has crossed the 1 million sales mark, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The set becomes her sixth to reach the sales milestone.
The album, released on Oct. 8, 2013, sold another 6,000 copies in the week ending April 27, pushing its total sales to 1.003 million. It ranks at No. 42 on the Billboard 200 in its 29th chart week.
"Bangerz" has roundly outsold Cyrus' previous studio effort, 2010's "Can't Be Tamed." That Hollywood Records release has sold 351,000 copies (with 29 percent of its total sales registered in its debut week: 102,000).
"Bangerz," Cyrus' first album for RCA Records, has generated two smash singles in "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball." The former spent three nonconsecutive weeks at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the latter topped the list for three weeks, marking her first Hot 100 leader. The album's third single, and most recent release, "Adore You," reached No. 21 on the Hot 100 dated March 1.
Cyrus' total album sales, including her work as Disney's "Hannah Montana" character, stand at 15.9 million. Her biggest seller remains the first soundtrack to Disney Channel's "Hannah Montana" TV series, which has sold 3.74 million since its release in 2006. "Hannah Montana"-related albums (including the half-soundtrack/half-studio album "Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus") comprise 72 percent of her overall album sales.
Still, while her "Hannah Montana" titles make up the bulk of her sales, her four non-"Hannah" releases - "Breakout," "The Time of Our Lives EP," "Can't Be Tamed" and "Bangerz" - have sold well. Of those, only "Can't Be Tamed" has yet to sell a million.
