Miley Cyrus Vents Over Sales Mishap: “I’ve Outgrown Blame”

Published: Monday 30th Nov 2020 by Sam

Miley Cyrus says she’s just as “frustrated” as her fans over an apparent mishap with the distribution of her new album ‘Plastic Hearts.’

As reported, the LP is on-track to open with soft numbers – despite the buzz established by preceding singles ‘Midnight Sky’ and ‘Prisoner (ft. Dua Lipa’).

While streaming has, for most, become the primary means of selling units, Cyrus’ sales ratio indicates her base still actively purchase traditional formats.

And that is where the singer’s gripe is rooted.

See what we mean below…

Quoting a tweet collating accounts of fans unable to find the album stocked in retailers, Cyrus issued the following statement:

“My fans are everything to me & to know y’all are disappointed when going out to stores/calling/checking stock to be let down I am equally/if  not more frustrated.

When choosing the 11/27 THE SUGGESTED DATE for album release my team and I were never told major retailers don’t stick physical albums on Black Friday and wouldn’t get copies of PH until a few weeks after release. The packaging of the record is intimate, honest, and a visual reflection of the sound of my new record that I am so proud of. It was created BY ME personally at home making art FOR YOU. I want it in your hands. 

I’ve outgrown blame. It’s a waste of time & energy. This album was a labor of love and nothing can sabotage my love for the record my collaborators & I created. xxMC.”

************

Understandable sentiments. Clearly something has gone awry.

That said, playing devil’s advocate, the numbers she’s projected to do are in-line with the sales of her most recent releases.

What’s more, with physical retailers stocking less and less actual CDs in stores these days, one has to wonder how much difference these “missing” copies would have accounted for.

And yet, at the same time, surely Cyrus should have the fairest opportunity to sell every copy she possibly can? Whether that be 1 or 100,000.

It’s a tangled web, no doubt.

With that, what are…

Your thoughts?

    Miley is managed by Larry Rudolph who is Britney’s manager. He sucks and Britney fans don’t like him. So blame him for the mishap

    Those numbers, amongst these strained times, are very respectable. I don’t get all the hoopla and negativity.

    Plenty of people like the physical copies. It’s tangible. They actually sale more than the digital copies for the most part.
