Owning All the Charts
It's one thing to have a hit at the box office. It's another to have a hit at the box office AND 6...that's right 6 hits on the billboard charts as well.
I'm guessing that the Beatles were one of the last groups able to pull off such a feat. Notice how I haven't even mentioned the superstar's name yet? It's because it's almost too obvious.
Miley Cyrus is making bank with "Hannah Montana: The Movie" (it's made over 50 million dollars in just over a week in theaters). I'd be less shocked if I'd read that Miley also had A SONG in the top 100. That makes since. "The Climb" was released just prior to the film and serves as the title track. BUT, to read that Cyrus has 6 songs in the top 100 right now is borderline ridiculous. Two of Cyrus' hits are in the top fifty:
8. Miley Cyrus "The Climb"
28. Miley Cyrus "Hoedown Throwdown"
I guess this proves that not only isn't she a one hit wonder, but she's expanding her fan base. The tween set doesn't have enough power to put Miley on that pedastal all by themselves.
