The announcement comes on the heels of her well-received appearance on the show (re-airing November 9), as both host and musical performer on October 5, that was part of a series of headline-making appearances that supported the release of her new album, Bangerz, on RCA Records.
Bangerz debuted at #1 on both the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and the Digital Album Charts with more than 270,000 albums sold. Additionally, during release week, Bangerz hit #1 on iTunes in over 70 countries. Both singles,“Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop,” off Bangerz have already sold 4.3 million copies in the U.S. alone. “Wrecking Ball” hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed there for two weeks. It became Miley’s first #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and her fastest-flying top 10 on Radio Songs.
“Wrecking Ball” also hit #1 on Spotify where it reached the highest streams ever for any track in the U.S. beating the next highest week by nearly 500,000 plays. This exciting news came just two days after her music video for "Wrecking Ball" became the fastest music video ever to reach CERTIFIED status, VEVO's milestone for videos delivering 100 million views in only 6 days. Cyrus shattered the previous record which she held for “We Can’t Stop,” which was CERTIFIED by VEVO just 37 days after it premiered.
Bangerz has gotten rave reviews, including Entertainment Weekly calling it “…utterly fresh, a pop blitz from a hip-hop blueprint, and proof that Miley won't settle for just shocking us.” US Weekly declared it “the year's most titillating pop explosion” awarding the album “4 stars (out of 4).”
