Miley Cyrus Claims Two Slots in the Top 10 on Billboard 200 Chart
Best of Both Worlds Concert Live CD is No. 10 and Hannah Montana 2 / Meet Miley Cyrus is No. 6
BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On the heels of a 70-date sold out concert tour and a No. 1 movie, fifteen year old teen sensation, Miley Cyrus has two albums in the Top 10 on The Billboard 200. In its second week of release, the two-disc Best of Both Worlds Concert Live CD + Highlights DVD jumped to the No. 10 position scanning over 51,000 units, according to Nielsen SoundScan for the week ending March 23. The triple-platinum Hannah Montana 2 / Meet Miley Cyrus double disc set re-entered the Top 10 at No. 6, scanning over 61,000 units. The last artist to chart two albums in the Top 10 was Ray Charles in 2004.
“Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert.”
Best of Both Worlds Concert Live CD + Highlights DVD contains 14 live hit tracks – seven by Hannah Montana, including a duet of “We Got the Party” with the Jonas Brothers, and seven by Miley Cyrus. The second disc is a bonus highlights DVD featuring two live video performances from the “Best of Both Worlds” concert tour, plus behind-the-scenes footage from the sold-out concert tour and a photo slideshow. The album was released on March 11 exclusively at Wal-Mart and will be released nationwide on April 15.
Multi-talented Miley Cyrus has captivated kids and families on Disney Channel's smash hit comedy series "Hannah Montana," the No. 1 cable TV series for kids age 6-14. Her triple platinum Hannah Montana soundtrack became the first ever TV soundtrack to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2007, the 15-year old followed that record with a two-disc set, Hannah Montana 2 / Meet Miley Cyrus, which also entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 and has since earned triple-platinum status. Miley became the youngest artist to have two No. 1 hits in less than a year.
In late January, Miley completed a 70-date sold out concert tour and by mid-February had the No. 1 film in the country with the Walt Disney Pictures 3-D release, “Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert.” Miley is currently recording material for her forthcoming studio album due later this year on Hollywood Records. She is slated to begin production this spring in Nashville on "The Hannah Montana Movie" to be followed by the taping of the third season of the "Hannah Montana" TV series.
