Track on course to score her first British Number 1?
Miley Cyrus looks to be on course to score her first Number One single in the UK, as her new tune ‘We Can’t Stop’ strides to the top of the iTunes listings after just a few hours on sale.
The track had been gathering strong momentum as a pre-order over recent weeks, and was made officially available to download in Britain at midnight last night.
The song quickly ascended to the top of the online store’s live rankings, giving a good hint that it willl be the UK’s official chart-topper next weekend.
The star has not even appeared in the top 10 over here before, but peaked at No11 three times – with ‘See You Again’ in 2008, and ‘The Climb’ and ‘Party In The USA’ in 2009. She hit No13 with ‘Can’t Be Tamed’ in 2010 – her last appearance in the chart.
Her three albums all made the Top 10, however – with Meet Miley Cyrus and Can’t Be Tamed both hitting No8, and Breakout making it to No10.
‘We Can’t Stop’ has already made it to the Top 5 in the US, but it looks set to dethrone Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’ and go all the way over here.
The performance of the track also betters that of her nearest Disney companions – Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato – whose new singles ‘Come And Get It’ and ‘Heart Attack’ peaked at Nos 6 and 3 respectively.
Miley’s new album is out later this year.
