Today Miley Cyrus officially released her fourth studio album, "BANGERZ" with RCA Records. Bangerz represents a musical departure from Hannah Montana, which she has grown to feel "disconnected" from. She considers it to be her debut record.  The lyrical themes revolve largely around her romance with former fiancé Liam Hemsworth. The record features guest vocals from several new partners, including pop singer Britney Spears and rappers Big Sean, French Montana, Future, Ludacris, and Nelly.
 
Two singles have been released from Bangerz thus far. The lead single "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball" both hitting the top of the World charts. The "Wrecking Ball" video currently holds the Vevo record for the most views in the first 24 hours of its release, and the fastest video to reach 100 million views on the service. 
 
Miley's says her album was influenced by the Motown Sound and acts like Miguel and Frank Ocean. She describes the music as "dirty south hip-hop" combining the genres of hip-hop and country, which she felt was a "good hybrid". To achieve this sound, Cyrus worked with various hip hop producers including Mike Will Made It, Mac Miller, Pharrell Williams, and Tyler. They helped her to incorporate hip hop music elements into the project, which Cyrus acknowledged resulted in a "really different sound".
 
Bangerz is primarily a 13 track pop album, which also integrates elements of hip hop, synthpop, and country music. It has gone straight to N°1 on I Tunes and received generally favorable reviews from music critics.

Lorde goes to No.1 in America with her breakthrough hit "Royals" and dethrones Miley's 'Wrecking Ball' from the top of the charts after 2 whole weeks. "Royals" remains atop the Digital Songs Chart for a second week (294,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan) and gains by 12% on Streaming Songs (to 6.1 million U.S. streams, according to BDS). The track tops the Hot Rock Songs chart for a fifth week. Lorde is the first woman to take a debut Hot 100 hit to No. 1 since Carly Rae Jepsen led for nine weeks with last year's top song of the summer, "Call Me Maybe." "Royals" has set the mark for the longest reign in the 25-year history of the Alternative Songs chart (seven weeks) by a lead female.


Katy Perry stays put at No.2 in the US with her global smash "Roar" which is No.1 in the World's best-selling Singles chart for the 6th week. The latter song spends a second week atop Radio Songs, surging by 5% to 168 million. It holds at No. 2 on Digital Songs (239,000) and slips 2-4 on Streaming Songs (6.3 million, down 14%).

Miley's "Wrecking Ball" drops 1-3 on the Hot US 100, although it tallies a third week at No. 1 on Streaming Songs. It's a non-mover at No. 3 on Digital Songs with a 37% slide to 221,000. Airplay, meanwhile, is building rapidly for the track, as it zooms 31-17 on Radio Songs with 52 million in audience impressions (up 35%).

As Drake scores his third No. 1 album on the US and World's best-selling Albums chart, "Hold On, We're Going Home" (featuring Majid Jordan), from "Nothing Was the Same," jumps 7-4 on the Hot US 100 with the top Streaming Gainer award. "Hold" hikes 4-1 on the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (3.3 million, up 65%) and 12-6 on Streaming Songs (5.7 million, up 86%). It bullets at No. 5 on Radio Songs with a 13% advance to 120 million and rises 3-1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

Rounding out America's top five Singles, Avicii's "Wake Me Up!" regresses 4-5. It rises 7-6 on Radio Songs (117 million, up 16%) and 5-4 on Digital Songs (182,000, down 4%), while falling 5-7 on Streaming Songs (4.6 million, down 6%). It crowns Dance/Electronic Songs for a fourth week.

Jay Z's "Holy Grail" (featuring Justin Timberlake) holds at No. 6 on the Hot 100, followed by Thicke's "Blurred Lines" (5-7).

Ylvis' novelty single "The Fox" scampers into the US Hot 100's top 10 (13-8) with top Digital Gainer accolades. The song from the Norwegian duo jumps 22-15 on Digital Songs (73,000, up 21%) and 3-2 on Streaming Songs (9.5 million, up 34%).

Two songs close out the Hot 100's top tier with backward moves despite gains in airplay. Lady Gaga's "Applause" descends 8-9 but increases by 10% to 80 million in listenership, bulleting again at No. 9 on Radio Songs. 

Lana Del Rey & Cedric Gervais' "Summertime Sadness" falls 9-10 but holds at No. 8 on Radio Songs with a 2% gain to 96 million.

Lady Gaga scored her first movie role in Machete Kills, and now the singer has loaned a new song to the film's trailer. The track, "Aura," gives the clip with a slithery Western feel as Machete (Danny Trejo) unloads a serving of ass-kicking on the orders of the President (Charlie Sheen). Gaga herself also pops up to give a glimpse of her character's skills with a gun; she is one of several actors to play the character "the Chameleon" in the film.

Korean Indie Band Busker Busker have invaded this week's World's Selling Singles chart with all 9 Songs from their New Smash Album "Busker Busker 2nd Album" charting in the TOP 40 including "Love At First" debuts at N°15, "Too Much Regret" at N°20, "Love Is Timing" at N°21, "Your Lips" at N°24, "Cool Girl" at N°27, "Night" at N°28, "Beautiful Age" at N°30, "Juliette" at N°31 and "Autumn NIght" at N°33!

 

Also, the new Busker Busker album has mercilessly dominated the Korean music charts in its first full charting week. Naturally, the lead single, “First Love,” is  the No. 1 best-selling Korean Single, having sold 576,292 digital downloads. "Love, At First,"  is an emotional rock ballad. The lead vocalist Jang Beom Joon transitions seamlessly from chest voice to spiraling falsetto as he expresses letdown of an abandoned relationship while members Brad Moore and Kim Hyung Tae showcase their musical dexterity on drums and bass, respectively. Busker Busker's compelling blend of impressive musicality, easy-to-follow melodies along with simple lyrics and their signature, low-key charm has placed the group as one of the most leading and successful band in the current Korean music scene.

Avicii’s Wake Me Up is one of UK's best-selling Singles of All Time! It has become the UK’s 140th million-selling single. The 24-year-old Swedish DJ and Producer’s track broke through the million copies sales barrier on Sunday, October 6. Wake Me Up is the 140th single to reach this milestone in British history, and the third track released this year to do so; Daft Punk’s Get Lucky featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, and Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines featuring TI and Pharrell Williams became million sellers in June and July, respectively.

Comments the Official Charts Company’s Chief Executive, Martin Talbot: "Congratulations to Avicii - hitting the million mark is a superb achievement for any act. It has been a fantastic year for smash hit singles with three 2013-released million-sellers already, and we can be sure that Avicii is not going to be the last millionaire of this year!"

Wake Me Up debuted at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart back in July. It became the fastest selling single of 2013 so far, selling 267,000 copies during its first week on sale. Wake Me Up spent three consecutive weeks at Number 1, and denied One Direction their fourth UK chart topper (with Best Song Ever).

“Having the fastest selling record of 2013 is obviously a huge deal to me,” Avicii told BBC Radio 1’s Official Chart Show host Jameela Jamil. “I never thought being on the Official Chart was an option for my music. Dance music has its own things; we have our own charts and lists, so just having a Number 1 is insane!”

Sir Elton John’s double A-side, "Something About The Way You Look Tonight / Candle In The Wind" '97, remains the UK’s biggest selling single of all-time. It has clocked up nearly 5 million sales since its release sixteen years ago.
