Miley Cyrus, Miley Cyrus, Miley Cyrus – most people (non-Smilers, anyway) are probably tired of hearing the pop star’s name everywhere. However, there are some legitimate music-related news around the pop star this time. Namely, that both her new album, Bangerz, and her highly publicized single, Wrecking Ball, have entered the UK charts. Given Miley’s devoted international fandom, it isn’t too surprising that the singer managed to concur the charts across the Pond this week.
Miley really can't stop.
Not only did Cyrus register in the charts – she managed to become the first artist to simultaneously top the album and singles chart in 2013. Wrecking Ball beat out Eminem’s Berzerk to the top (possibly giving the rapper yet more material,) while Cyrus’ Bangerz album beat out Chase & Status with Brand New Machine, according to BBC News. The last act to achieve the chart double was Olly Murs, with his single Troublemaker and album Right Place, Right Time, last December. But then Murs is local, while Miley, despite her explosion in popularity over the past year, is American, making her success on British soil that much more impressive. But don’t for one moment think that Miley isn’t grateful.
Can't stop making headlines that is.
"I truly appreciate the love I'm getting from the UK," the singer said. "Not only is this my second Number 1 single, but even more amazing is my album has also gone in at Number 1. I can't wait to be back in the UK next month."
Miley will also go on a limited UK tour this December, starting with a show at London’s O2 Arena on the 10th and ending on the 20th at Birmingham’s LG Arena.
