On her hit Disney Channel show, she’s Hannah Montana. But on her upcoming album, she’s just Miley Cyrus. The teen superstar will release the first full-length album under her own name, “Breakout,” July 22 via Hollywood Records.
The first single, “7 Things,” was one of the most added at U.S. top 40 radio outlets last week, garnering 255 spins. It is also enjoying some airplay at adult top 40 stations.
“7 Things” was produced by John Fields and written by Cyrus with Antonina Armato and Tim James. The latter has previously worked with Cyrus on “Hannah Montana” material, as well as with teen pop favorites like Aly & AJ and the cast of “High School Musical.”
On the track, Cyrus takes aim at a hurtful ex who won’t provide a “sincere apology.” “And when you mean it, I’ll believe it / If you text it, I’ll delete it,” Cyrus sings.
Cyrus recently scored her first top 10 Hot 100 hit with “See You Again,” and she presently has two different albums in the top half of The Billboard 200: “Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: The Best of Both Worlds Concert” at No. 33 and “Hannah Montana 2 (Soundtrack)/Meet Miley Cyrus” at No. 65.
