It may seem as though Miley Cyrus released her single ‘We Can’t Stop‘ months ago – because she did – but the track was only made available to UK buyers yesterday.
Miley’s comeback has been the centre of a media storm following the singer’s drastic image change and the single’s controversial music video. Whilst it took a little longer to pick up in the UK, within recent weeks ‘Can’t Stop‘ has enjoyed high radio airplay and pre-order sales on iTunes.
Therefore, it should be no surprise that the single went to #1 on iTunes within hours of its release yesterday morning. The track – produced by Mike Will Made iT – could be the first UK #1 single for Miley, and – if not – it will at least be her first UK Top 10 hit.
Although the 20-year-old became a household name years ago with hits like ‘Party In The U.S.A‘ and ‘The Climb‘, none of Cyrus’ previous singles have managed to chart within the Top 10. With stiff competition from Tinie Tempah and Avicii it will be interesting to see who nabs the #1 spot when the UK Top 40 is revealed next Sunday.
