Miley Cyrus' Can't Be Tamed debuted earlier this year to disappointing numbers, selling only about 107,000 copies in its first week and becoming the star's only album to not peak at #1 on the Billboard 200.
Well could those sales have been due to illegal downloads? Obviously that's not the only reason, but it seems like it was definitely a notable factor.
According to iLeaks, a website that leaks music for free, Can't Be Tamed was their fifth-most illegally downloaded album, while the title track and lead single was the eighth-most illegally downloaded song. The song's accompanying music video was the seventh-most illegally downloaded video. Altogether, Miley was the tenth-most artist whose material was illegally downloaded from the website.
