As Miley Cyrus celebrates her 28th birthday today (Nov. 23), let’s revisit her impressive history on the Billboard Hot 100.
Cyrus first jumped onto the chart on Aug. 5, 2006, when “Who Said,” a tune credited to her Disney Channel alter-ego Hannah Montana, arrived at No. 92. The Hannah Montana franchise – in which Cyrus played a character named Miley Stewart, who secretly led a double life as pop star Hannah Montana – eventually sparked 20 Hot 100 entries, including the top 10 hit “He Could Be the One,” which reached No. 10 in 2009.
Montana aside, Cyrus made her Hot 100 entrance under her own name in 2007, when “G.N.O. (Girls Night Out)” debuted (and peaked) at No. 91. She quickly followed with her maiden top 40 effort, “Ready, Set, Don’t Go,” a duet with her father, Billy Ray Cyrus. The collaboration darted to No. 37 in February 2008.
