Miley Cyrus Rides ‘Wrecking Ball’ to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100
Miley Cyrus has ridden her wrecking ball all the way to the top of the new Billboard Hot 100! 'Wrecking Ball' is her first-ever No. 1 on the singles chart, after close calls with 'We Can't Stop' and 'Party in the U.S.A.,' both of which previously made it to the second spot.
'Wrecking Ball' makes a huge leap from 22nd place to first this week, knocking the chart's prior champion, Katy Perry's 'ROAR,' to No. 2 after two weeks. Miley's track, which has also been named the week's top Streaming and Sales Gainer, made historic gains to top both the On-Demand Songs tally and Spotify chart as well.
The song's much-discussed video, featuring a both physically and emotionally naked Miley, also broke a record on VEVO, notching 100 million views in just six days. The previous record, for 37 days, was for Cyrus' previous single, 'We Can't Stop.'
