It is hard to believe that at just 24 years old Miley Cyrus has been around for more than a decade now. Ten years ago, the daughter of the famous Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus was the main character of the highly popular Disney franchise Hannah Montana. Rumors are starting to grow of a return for the ever-evolving artist. While we await a potential comeback, it’s time to review her career from her debut in 2006 to now!
The transition from Hannah Montana to Miley Cyrus was perfectly handled. After a very successful debut album serving as the Soundtrack of the TV show, the second season’s album included an additional disc to introduce Miley herself, aptly titled ‘Meet Miley Cyrus’.
Miley’s transition from teen to pop music was huge. The video for her 2013 single Wrecking Ball showed just how big this transition was. This led the pop star to find huge fame in mainstream media, especially in as a subject for gossip magazines. It is always difficult to fairly evaluate the real selling power of such music acts that are as popular as popular for their controversy as their singing.
So, what are Miley Cyrus’ sales figures? And, how does she rank against pure music sellers?
As usual, I’ll be using the Commensurate Sales to Popularity Concept in order to relevantly gauge her results. The concept will not only bring you sales information for all of Miley Cyrus’ albums, physical and download singles, as well as audio and video streaming, but it will also determine her true popularity. If you are not yet familiar with the CSPC method, the next page explains it with a short video. I fully recommend watching the video before getting into the sales figures. Of course, if you are a regular visitor feel free skip the video and get into the figures. Let’s go!
