The Pop Chameleon!

Miley started out playing Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel, a good girl image she would later shatter as she can be seen riding naked on a Wrecking ball, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

As Hannah Montana, Miley released several successful albums, starting with Hannah Montana (2006), Hannah Montana 2 (2007), and Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009).

These first three albums all went to #1 and sold more than 10 million copies combined!

In Hannah Montana, she plays a character named Miley Cyrus who has an alter ego, the pop star Hannah Montana. Her actual real name is Destiny Hope, but she kept Miley as that’s what everyone knew her as.

Her first album not associated with Montana was the 2008 Breakout. It didn’t do as well as her Disney albums (it sold 2 million) but it did spread her “real” name more beyond the borders of the U.S.

Her next album was an EP called The Time Of Our Lives (2009), it sold 3 million in the U.S. and further spread the word internationally.

The main single was Party In The U.S.A, a less innocent version of what we were used to, still not quite riding a Wrecking Ball naked though.

Next up, we get Can’t Be Tamed (2010); the bad girl image is now starting to really take hold but this album was a bit of a flop with only 500,000 copies flogged in the U.S.

The next release took a few years, perhaps down to a move to a new record label, RCA. The 2013 Bangerz did well with 3 million sold in the U.S. It is on this album we find Wrecking Ball.

Wrecking Ball was an international hit and made Miley world-famous with 9 million singles sold in the U.S. alone. It did over 1 million in the U.K. too.

Her next release was a curve ball. Back in 2015, to release an album for free was very strange but that is what she did. Without a label, she dropped Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz (2015).

This was a collaboration between Miley and The Flaming Lips; it was, shall we say, different. Critics liked the bold move.

Next, we saw another U-turn with the album Younger Now (2017). This is country pop (her dad, Billy Ray‘s genre) and a guest vocal from Miley’s godmother, Dolly Parton.

This wasn’t a big success, only half a million copies sold, and Miley quickly announced she wouldn’t tour the album and instead focus on her new gig, as a judge in the TV show The Voice.

During this time, she featured in a Mark Ronson album with Nothing Breaks Like A Heart, a single that did well, reaching #2 in the U.K. charts.

This was followed by her worst-performing release, the 2019 EP She Is Coming. Here she again worked with Ronson although this time it was a flop.

On the 2020 release, Plastic Hearts, she teamed up with Ronson again, as well as guest singers Dua Lipa, Joan Jett, Stevie Nicks, and Billy Idol.

This album did much better with success now counted in streams rather than sales; it was the most-streamed album of the decade (3 billion).

Following a live album, she released Endless Summer Vacation in 2023. Here we find her best-performing single so far, Flowers.

As we’re all about streaming by now, the success is measured in the numbers being converted to gold, diamond, and platinum. Flowers has gone multiple times platinum worldwide. It is Miley’s most-streamed song on Spotify after only a year on the platform.

In the charts, Flowers went #1 in over 40 countries!
