Miley Cyrus’ ‘Bangerz’ Headed For Number One With 250,000 First-Week Sales Tally

5229f7f58380fb682579dad5460acad9 Miley Cyrus’ ‘Bangerz’ Headed For Number One With 250,000 First Week Sales Tally

Miley Cyrus is headed straight to number one on the Billboard Hot 200 with her much-hyped Bangerz LP. No surprise there. The 20-year-old is arguably the most famous woman on the planet at the moment — collecting headlines and hit singles with ease. But does that translate into album sales? The answer, it seems, is no.

Bangerz is predicted to sell 250,000 copies in its first week. That’s a commendable figure in 2013 but still feels underwhelming given the diva’s media dominance and the fact that the album was released with four different covers — a marketing ploy to encourage multiple purchases. To put things into perspective Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Britney Spears and P!nk all sold more first week with their last studio albums.

That said, Miley’s fourth LP should sell enough to give it the highest first-week sales tally for a female artist in 2013. At least until Prism and ARTPOP hit shelves. Time will tell if Bangerz has legs and sells steadily over the coming months but this isn’t quite the knockout punch many commentators were expecting. See the five best first-week sellers of 2013 after the jump.
