Guess Miley Cyrus' new "edgy" music didn't captivate listeners as well as she would have hoped.
Miley's third album, Can't Be Tamed, debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 today, selling only 106,553 copies in its first week of sales. She was beaten out by Eminem's Recovery, which took the number one spot with 753,870 copies, and Drake's Thank Me Later, which fell to #2 with 156,451. Kinda sad, considering Drake's album was in its second week of release and it still managed to beat out Miley.
Now her numbers aren't too bad, but they aren't up to her standards. For comparison:
- Meet Miley Cyrus, Miley's first album which acted as a second disc for the Hannah Montana 2 soundtrack, debuted at #1 with around 326,000 copies.
- Breakout, Miley's second studio album, debuted at #1 in 2008 with 371,000 copies.
Not exactly going out on a high note, are we, Miley?Source
