Miley Cyrus has made a triumphant return to the charts, securing the Official Chart Double with her latest album Endless Summer Vacation landing straight in at Number 1, marking her first chart-topping album in nearly a decade. The pop chameleon’s eighth studio album stormed to the summit in its opening week, cementing her reputation as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
Miley has previously reached Number 1 in 2013 with her Bangerz LP and has also scored Top 10 hits with Breakout (10), Can’t Be Tamed (8), Younger Now (8), and Plastic Hearts (4). This is also the second time Miley has achieved the relatively rare Official Chart Double, as she previously reigned supreme on both the Official Singles and Albums Chart simultaneously in 2013, when both Wrecking Ball and Bangerz hit Number 1 in the same week.
Miley’s achievement is especially significant as she is the first artist to score the Double this year, and the first to do it since Taylor Swift’s smash with Anti-Hero and Midnights last year. Meanwhile, on the Official Singles Chart, Miley’s enduring mega-hit Flowers remains at Number 1 for the ninth consecutive week, tying with Olivia Rodrigo’s drivers license as the longest-running Number 1 single by a female solo artist this decade. Thanks to the release of its parent album, Flowers also regains its title as the UK’s most-streamed song of the past seven days.
