Miley Cyrus’ ‘Bangerz’ Debuts At #1, ‘Glee’ & Cassadee Pope Make Top 10 On Album Chart

She Can't Stop
With a sturdy wrecking ball betwixt her thighs, sweet Miley Cyrus has slammed her Bangerz all the way to the top of the Billboard 200. The album sold about 270,000 copies in its first week, an improvement over the 102,000 the Disney cherub’s last LP, Can’t Be Tamed, opened with in 2010. That’s not surprising, given the airplay and chart success of Bangerz‘s two singles “We Can’t Stop” (#2 on the Hot 100) and “Wrecking Ball” (#1).

Bangerz is one of seven debuts in the upper tier of the Top 10, including the latest Glee cast release, The Quarterback, which serves as the soundtrack from last week’s Cory Monteith/Finn Hudson tribute episode, and the first post-win album from Cassadee Pope, champ of The Voice Season 3.

Below, see how all your other fave pop bangerz fared this week.

    I love all the Miley haters who are calling her album a flop. 270,000 is by far not a flop at all. Sure, there was a lot of controversy and promotion done for this album but for someone who seems to have become a public joke and probably lost a lot of fans from her “Hannah Montana” days and from the debacle that was “Can’t Be Tamed,” the fact that she got all these people to buy it is no small feat. And, she’s certainly sold more in one week than recent albums by her more loved and respected contemporaries Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and Ariana Grande have since they were released.
    People need to consult a dictionary for the word “flop.” Haters want her to fail but she hasn’t.

    It’s not a flop, but she should have done better, if you look at all the attention she’s received and how well her singles have done. “Bangerz” can still be a hit. “Teenage Dream” started low sales wise and look how well it did. It’ll just be more difficult due to the slew of hig profile releases hitting stores in the coming weeks.
