Introduction

Cyrus appearing on Today in May 2017

Miley Ray Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus, November 23, 1992) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. After playing minor roles in the television series Doc and the film Big Fish in her childhood, she became a teen idol starring as the character Miley Stewart on the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana in 2006. Her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, also starred on the series, which aired for four seasons until 2011.

Cyrus has earned three number-one albums on the US Billboard 200 with Meet Miley Cyrus (2007), Breakout (2008), and Bangerz (2013). Her releases The Time of Our Lives (2009), Can't Be Tamed (2010), and Younger Now (2017) debuted in the top-five in the United States, while her album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz (2015) was released for free online streaming on SoundCloud. Further, Cyrus has attained an additional two number-one and three top-ten soundtracks credited as Hannah Montana. She has also earned nine top-ten entries on the US Billboard Hot 100: "See You Again", "7 Things", "The Climb", "He Could Be the One" (as Hannah Montana), "Party in the U.S.A.", "Can't Be Tamed", "We Can't Stop", "Malibu" and the chart-topping "Wrecking Ball".

The discography of American recording artist Miley Cyrus consists of three studio albums, three live albums, two compilation albums, two remix albums, five soundtrack albums, one extended play (EP), eighteen singles, ten promotional singles, two video albums, and eleven music videos. Prior to launching a musical career of her own, Cyrus starred as the titular character on the popular television series Hannah Montana, which first aired in March 2006. Consequently, the series became a franchise that released several soundtracks, where she performed under character. The first Hannah Montana soundtrack was released in 2006. Cyrus then signed a record deal with Hollywood Records to launch a career under her own name. In 2007, the singer released the double-disc album Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus. The first disc, Hannah Montana 2, of the album was Hannah Montana's second season soundtrack, while the second disc, Meet Miley Cyrus, was Cyrus' debut studio album. In 2009, Cyrus released the Hannah Montana: The Movie soundtrack. Later in 2009, the Hannah Montana 3 soundtrack and the EP The Time of Our Lives followed. The singer later met with a decline in sales in 2010, with both her third studio album, Can't Be Tamed and Hannah Montana Forever, being unable to duplicate her prior success.

Featured album

Breakout is the second studio album by American recording artist Miley Cyrus. The album was released on July 22, 2008 in the USA by Hollywood Records and is Cyrus' first not affiliated with the Hannah Montana franchise. On September 14, 2008 it was released internationally. This, coupled by Cyrus' fondness for the album's first track, influenced the title of the album. Cyrus composed many of the songs on Breakout as she traveled on the Best of Both Worlds Tour (2007–08), co-writing eight of the album's 13 new songs. Most songs feature writing credits for Antonina Armato and Tim James. Overall, Breakout is dominant on pop rock but explores a variety of other musical genres. Lyrical themes addressed in the album relate to breakups and coming of age.

Featured song

"When I Look at You" is a power ballad performed by American recording artist and actress Miley Cyrus. The song was written by John Shanks and Hillary Lindsey and produced by Shanks. It was released on March 1, 2010 by Hollywood Records as the second and final single from Cyrus's first extended play, The Time of Our Lives (2009). A remix version titled "Te Miro a Ti", featuring Spanish singer David Bisbal was released later; in it, Cyrus sings her lines in English, while Bisbal's are mingled in both English and Spanish. "When I Look at You" was featured on the 2010 film The Last Song and its corresponding soundtrack, being used to promote the film. The song contains an instrumentation primarily based on piano, while its lyrics speak of a dream boy.
