Miley Cyrus debuts at #1 on the sales chart this week with her new release, Bangerz, selling 270,000 copies in its first frame, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Including her soundtrack albums as Hannah Montana, this is Cyrus' fifth #1 album, reports Billboard.com. Bangerz also managed to top the chart in a very busy sales week, as six other new releases debuted in the Top 10. Arriving at #2 is Panic! at the Disco's Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die, with 83,700 sold. This matches the band's highest-charting set, Pretty. Odd., which also debuted at #2 in 2008. Drake's Nothing Was the Same slips to #3 this week with 83,000 sold, and Rapper Pusha T bows at #4 with My Name Is My Name, shifting 75,000 units. This marks his first Top 10 as a solo artist, though he previously hit Top 10 as a member of Clipse with the album Lord Willin'.
Meanwhile, last week's #1 album, Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2, lands at #5 this week with 70,000. Lorde's Pure Heroine is #6 with 63,000. The cast of Glee returns to the Top 10 this week with the soundtrack to the show's October 10 episode, which dealt with the death of the character Finn Hudson as well as the late actor who played him, Cory Monteith. The soundtrack EP bows at #7 with 47,000 units sold. Rock band Korn claims its 12th Top 10 album with The Paradigm Shift, opening at #8 with 46,000.
The third-season winner of the The Voice, Cassadee Pope, earns a #9 debut with her first major-label album, Frame by Frame, selling 43,000 copies. Finally, rockers Mayday Parade bow at #10 with Monsters in the Closet, shifting 30,000 in the first week. This is the best sales week yet for the group, and it also marks an achievement for the band's label, FearlessRecords. This is the label's second Top 10 album ever, following Plain White T's Every Second Counts, which bowed at #10 in 2007.
