A verdict on the overall success of Miley Cyrus’ heavily-hyped album “Bangerz” will not be available until sales estimates are released Wednesday, but the question of whether or not its songs are making an impact has already been answered.
As of press time, Cyrus’ new album has accomplished the rare feat of landing each of its individual tracks on the iTunes Singles Sales Chart. All thirteen songs from the standard edition (and one from the deluxe edition) are in the top one hundred, and several have advanced into the top 50.
Smash hits “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop” continue to the lead the charge at numbers four and eight, respectively, while new song “Adore You” is making an immediate impact at number twelve. “Drive,” currently situated at number twenty five, has also impressed with his entry into the chart’s upper quartile.
“Someone Else” (30), “Maybe You’re Right” (32), “FU” (41), “My Darlin'” (42), “SMS” (43) and “Hands in the Air (a deluxe track)” (50) have all ascended into the top fifty.
Lower on the chart–but still in impressive territory–are “Do My Thang” (65), “#GETITRIGHT” (76), “Love Money Party” (77) and “4X4” (83).
The volatile nature of opening day sales assures the tracks will repeatedly change positions on the chart, but it will not erase the fact that lure of Cyrus’ individual tracks is successfully prompting people to part with their money.
