Miley Cyrus Catapults to # 2 Debut on Billboard Hot 100 with ‘Party In The USA;’ Tied for Highest Debut of the Year

Miley Cyrus’ new single, “Party In The USA” debuts at # 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 today, selling over 225,000 units, and following 3 consecutive weeks of having the # 1 most added song at Top 40 Radio. Miley’s # 2 debut ties for the highest debut of 2009 alongside Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling.” Miley’s “Party In The USA” is the highest debut by a female solo artist since Carrie Underwood’s “Inside Your Heaven” (in July of 2005.) This also marks Miley’s highest single-week download total, and is the fastest breaking single in Hollywood Records’ history. “Party In The USA” was produced and co-written by Dr. Luke.

 

 

In addition to the # 2 Hot 100 debut, Miley has reason to celebrate several # 1 debuts, including the # 1 single on iTunes, and # 1 on Billboard’s Digital Song Chart and Hot Digital Track Chart. She is scheduled to perform “Party In The USA” on The Today Show August 28, days in front of the release of her new EP Time of Our Lives on August 31. “Party In The USA” is available for purchase at wal-mart.com and iTunes.com.

All four of Miley’s prior albums have reached # 1; the first Hannah Montana soundtrack from her hit Disney Channel TV show of the same name, the two-disc set Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus, the Miley Cyrus Breakout CD and the Walt Disney Pictures soundtrack for Hannah Montana The Movie. Miley is the youngest recording artists to claim four # 1 albums on the Billboard Top 200 in less than three years.

“Party In The USA” is the follow up to Miley’s monster hit “The Climb” which has held the # 1 spot at Mainstream AC for a record breaking seven weeks, went to # 5 on the Top 40 airplay chart, and reached # 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Miley recently wrapped filming the Nicolas Sparks drama “The Last Song” and will embark on a 55-city North American tour beginning in September. Next year, Miley will begin production of season 4 of the Disney Channel series “Hannah Montana.”
