Miley Cyrus Earns First-Ever #1 Song with "Wrecking Ball"

by at . Comments

Miley Cyrus doesn't have time to worry about Liam Hemsworth or Eiza Gonzalez.

The singer is too busy celebrating her first-ever number-one hit!

Yes, despite (or perhaps due to) the controversy surrounding "Wrecking Ball," this song is a swinging success for Cyrus. It has overtaken Katy Perry's "Roar" at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, leaping 21 spots from its debut a week ago.

Miley's previous biggest tracks - 2009's "Party in the U.S.A." and 2013's "We Can't Stop" - couldn't make it past number-two on the same chart.

The Wrecking Ball music video has also shattered the mark for most VEVO views in a 24-hour period and the single is number-one on Spotfiy with over 2.5 million U.S streams.

So even with her personal life a mess, Miley's professional life has never been better, as she documented on Twitter yesterday:

"#1 on Billboard. #1 on iTunes. #1 on Spotify. #1 on Streaming. #1 on Digital songs. #1 most added to pop radio. #1 on VEVO. #WreckingBall"

Moreover, Cyrus isn't even close to done: the album "Bangerz" comes out on October 8 and is already one of the top pre-sellers on iTunes.
