Billboard Top 2: Miley Cyrus and Panic! At The Disco
Counting her soundtrack albums as the Disney character Hannah Montana, this is her fifth No. 1 album. She topped the list with the Disney Channel TV series’ first soundtrack in 2006, as well as its big-screen film adaptation soundtrack in 2009. Cyrus herself notched No. 1s with the half-soundtrack/half-st
udio album “Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus” set in 2007, and then her own “Breakout” studio effort in 2008. Cyrus’ last studio album, 2010′s “Can’t Be Tamed,” debuted and peaked at No. 3 from a 102,000 start.
“Bangerz” is one of seven debuts in the top 10 this week. Arriving at No. 2 is Panic! at the Disco’s “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die” with 84,000. That’s up quite a bit from the starting week of its last album, 2011′s “Vices & Virtues.” It debuted and peaked at No. 7 with 56,000. Panic’s new album matches its highest-charting set, “Pretty. Odd.,” which debuted and peaked at No. 2 in 2008.
“Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!” is the #2 album this week! So we’re right behind @MileyCyrus & being behind a twerker isn’t a bad view
