Miley Cyrus’ ‘Bangerz’ Comes in at No. 1


Miley Cyrus’ antics have been working, as can be seen by the former Disney star’s position on the US Album’s Chart. Miley’s first RCA release came in at number one, selling 270,000 units in the first week ending October 13th. The album, “Bangerz” is her 6th number one album, but her first three were under the Hannah Montana name.

“Bangerz” is the 7th new album on the US top ten. Panic at the Disco came in at number two with “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die,” which sold 84,000. Pusha T’s “My Name is My Name,” surfaced at number 4 with 75,000 sold.

Last week’s emotional tribute to Cory Monteith on “Glee” led the soundtrack to the top 10 for the first time in two years. The episode’s soundtrack landed at number 7 with 47,000 sold. Korn’s album “The Paradigm Shift” debuted at number 8. Following at number 9 was “The Voice” champion Cassadee Pope with her first full-length solo album, “Frame by Frame.” Mayday Parade rounded off the top 10 with their fourth release, “Monsters in the Closet,” which is a best for the band.

The holdovers this week are Drake’s “Nothing Was the Same” (No. 3), Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2″ (No. 5), and Lorde’s “Pure Heroine” (No.6).
