Miley Cyrus? Sheâ€™s still just 24 years of time old. Four years of time ago, in October 2013, she sold 270,000 copies in her debut week of the â€œBangerzâ€� album. The- album had hit singles â€œWe Canâ€™t Stopâ€�
and â€œWrecking Ball.â€� Two many months earlier sheâ€™d twerked with Robin Thicke on the MTV Video Music Awards. Her Hannah Montana persona was gone.
This past Friday, Miley let go her 1st official studio album since â€œBangerz.â€� â€œYounger Nowâ€� sold 33.500 copies on CD and paid download. If you add in streaming, she sold another 14,000 copies. Basically, â€œYounger Nowâ€� is DOA.
Cyrus went from rated Râ€“ a complex Râ€“ to rated Gâ€“ in just four years. Well, one year really since the â€œBangerzâ€� period went on for three years. She smoked pot, posed naked for lots of photos, formally announced she was sexually fluid, broke up with her movie star fiance, Liam Hemsworth. She let go a free album of experimental music, too. It was an early 20s free fall.
But now Miley is back, doing a severe 180 degree turn in the last few months. Sheâ€™s back with Liam, singing with Dolly Parton, touring with her father. She may be â€œyounger nowâ€� yet Miley has moreover banged up her recording career. Itâ€™s not in that sheâ€™s no goodâ€“ she has an astonishing voice. But the actual 1 million people who bought â€œBangerzâ€� are gone. What might have been a superstar sales career is gone.
Whatâ€™s next? Sheâ€™ll have to go pure country if she wants to sell records for the rest of her twenties. Otherwise, Miley will have to get out the wrecking ball. I hope she kept it.
