As if we needed another sign that Miley Cyrus is taking over the world, the ‘tween pop phenom is now dominating the Billboard Hot 100. Six songs off the soundtrack for Hannah Montana: The Movie — which just so happened to rule the box office this past weekend — span this week’s singles chart from No. 8 to No. 88, including Miley’s “The Climb,” BFF Taylor Swift’s track “Crazier,” andMiley’s duet with dear old dad Billy Ray, “Butterfly Fly Away.” While the Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow” held on to the top spot, the Hannah Montana tunes are climbing at a steady rate. Miley’s “Hoedown Throwdown” has seen big success in the past few days, with a 119 percent rise in downloads. And with a song title like that, who could be surprised?
How about you, Music Mixers? Have you purchased songs off the Hannah Montana soundtrack? Or are you simply too busy bracing for the Miley-induced apocalypse?
