By Justin Myers

From Hannah Montana to tongue-waggling wild child and beyond, Miley Cyrus has been something of a chameleon during her pop career.

Now she's back with a new look and a new sound and a new single, Malibu, but what about the hits that came before it? We count down Miley's top selling and most streamed hits and look at her career highlights.

See You Again
Miley's first hit, and something of a landmark track, a sit marked her transition from cheery Disney princess Hannah Montana into herself. It peaked at Number 11 in 2008 – a position Miley would see quite a bit of over the next few years. See You Again has sold 155,000 copies.




ADVERTISING

The Climb
The Top 10 evaded Miley yet again with this sweeping ballad, stalling at Number 11 in spring 2009. But there was bigger success ahead for this song — just for someone else. X Factor winner Joe McElderry covered the track and took it to Number 1 (eventually) at New Year and even gave Miley a boost in the process, returning her version to the Top 40. Although she didn't manage to clamber to Joe's heights, The Climb has a sales tally of 362,000 and has 6.3 million listens under its utility belt.

Party in the USA
The curse of Number 11 struck yet again for Miley – what was this girl gonna have to do to get in that Top 10? It's practically internet law that when talking about this song, you must mention Jessie J was one of the writers, so there you go. Party in the USA sold 306,000 copies and has a streaming tally of 15.8 million.



QUIZ: Secret superstar songwriters – the popstars who wrote hits for others

Can't Be Tamed
As with most stars who start out with a cutesy, tween image, Miley was trying to shed her Hannah Montana skin once and for all, and her first serious attempt was on Can't Be Tamed. The track is basically a three-minute long statement of intent – Miley will be breaking free and doing her own thing anytime soon and was unstoppable. In case you missed the song's subtleties, Miley was in a cage for the video. Needless to say, the track's parent album would be her last with that record label. Can't Be Tamed couldn't charm its way past Number 13, sadly, but it has sold 119,000 copies. And now comes the big change we knew was coming…



We Can't Stop
So what does Miley have to do to get into the Top 10, we asked. Well, the answer seems to be wreck a mansion, bath in milk, lick everything in site, step on a skull made of french fries, hint that someone is doing drugs in the next room, twerk, rock a onesie and create general havoc. Oh, and produce a genuinely brilliant pop song that would perfectly capture the (rich) millennial moment. We Can't Stop, lead single from Miley's amazingly titled album Bangerz, divided fans and critics alike but it was pretty unapologetic, especially when it went straight in at Number 1 in August 2013 to give Miley her first Top 10 and chart-topper to boot. It's perhaps no surprise that We Can't Stop finishes as her best seller, shifting 514,000 copies, and on streams it's 15.8 million.



Wrecking Ball
How do you follow a heavily stylised, hedonistic call to arms like We Can't Stop? Well, you sit on a wrecking ball naked, that's how. The Miley media machine was in full swing with the release of this emotional, yet ballsy ballad that both showed Miley's sensitive side and added more fuel to the fire of controversy – especially when Miley licked a sledgehammer. Look, she's just naturally curious, OK? Wrecking Ball also went straight in at the top, beating Eminem in the process. The track smashed its way to 507,000 sales and has 20.2 million listens to its name, making it Miley's most streamed track.



Feelin' Myself
Miley's most recent Top 10 was an all-star collaboration with will.i.am, Wiz Khalifa, French Montana and DJ Mustard, reaching Number 2 in February 2014 – yes, Miley has really been away from the Official Singles Chart for over three years. The track has sold 347,000 copies and gained 18.6 million plays to be her second most streamed track.

I'm sure 'Wrecking Ball' would have had more sales had a pre-order been introduced and it wasn't released the same day as the album!
