The Predictions Are In! Miley Cyrus’ ‘Plastic Hearts’ Album Set To Sell…

Published: Sunday 29th Nov 2020 by Sam

Miley Cyrus unleashed her seventh studio album this week, after months of fan-anticipation.

Originally configured as a three-part EP (see: ‘She Is…’ series), the singer scrapped that idea in favor of a more definitive body of work.

Having navigated many sounds over the course of her career, Cyrus says she set out to anchor her artistic proposition this go round.

Led by singles such as ‘Midnight Sky’ and the Dua Lipa assisted ‘Prisoner,’ all eyes are on the LP’s commercial performance.

The answer is here, because the first-week sales forecast is in.

Head below for the details…

Per Hits Daily Double, ‘Plastic Hearts’ is on-course to premiere with:

40,000-50,000
[Sales Plus Streaming]

******

17,000-23,000
[Pure Sales]

Interestingly, while the numbers are arguably on the lower end for an act with Cyrus’ profile in Pop, they are in-line with the performance her last LP ‘Younger Now’ and follow-up EP ‘She Is Coming’ – which launched with 45,000 and 36,000 respectively.

It does beg the question of whether the singer’s sales are becoming for an act of her ilk or whether she is ultimately selling what she could, would, and should be.

Your thoughts?

    Dang Meg the horse outsold

    • DC November 29, 2020

      Not in pure sales

  2. LiohaK November 29, 2020

    No hit, no sales. It is what it is for artists like Miley (the majority of artists actually). She’s not an album seller.

  3. Clarkson November 29, 2020

    Brandy numbers 💀

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) November 29, 2020

      Damn gurl I’m bout to say…. even brandy didn’t do major promotion before the album released. Miley did performed in 2 big shows, VMA, AMA. Those numbers are really embarrassing for a pop tart like her💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿

    • JuRobertson November 29, 2020

      And what’s that supposed to mean? Brandy is 41 years old & in the 26th yr of her career. She’s doing the same numbers or close to as younger popular artists. What exactly does that say? Keep Brandy’s name out your pressed mouth.

    • STARR November 29, 2020

      BRANDY KEEPS YALL THE F*** PRESSED OK

      • Fancy BISH November 29, 2020

        Brandy keeps me looking out for her on the road, so I can avoid her murdering self. But she can always use her black privilege to get away with murder.

  4. King+Khia November 29, 2020

    Her musicality has been all over the place like Christina Aguilera. When the public has no clue on the kind of artists ones are because they jump genres like hopscotch, they do not buy into newer projects. We want our favorite musicians to progress and mature and not become random chameleons.

  5. Pat November 29, 2020

    She’s been over

  6. IKNOWTHETRUTH November 29, 2020

    THE LACK OF CONSISTENCY IN HER SOUND IS CREEPIN UP ON HER

    • Slick November 29, 2020

      I agree.

  7. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) November 29, 2020

    Flop so hard😂🤣😂🤣 this crackhead bish actually has some bops in this album. I think it’s her best since Hannah Montana😂🤣😂🤣

  8. Beam Me Up Scotty November 29, 2020

    FLOP

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) November 29, 2020

      album certified plastic 🗑 🗑 🗑

  9. TORi November 29, 2020

    Quite hilarious seeing as how many people were bragging to death how great her new image and sound was doing. You’d think they liked it enough to actually support it 🤣😄😆‼️

    • Clarks0o0ñ November 29, 2020

      That’s Twitter for u

      They will hype and praise ur shìt but they will still leave u to flop

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) November 29, 2020

      Just u and yo other troll accounts were hype about this crackhead b-I-t-c-h 💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿 Her vocal is a mess as always but she had a few good songs like gimme what I want, night crawling & prisoner. Other than that She’s just a cheap gimmick 💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️

  10. Clarks0o0ñ November 29, 2020

    Ever since she did that country pop album, things have been going down hill for her

    Where are her fans?

    Atleast katy is in her 30s so her flopping is understandable but miley is only 28, she shouldn’t be doing such low numbers

  11. Clarks0o0ñ November 29, 2020

    She thought a collaboration with a main pop girl like dua lipa will save her album but what she doesnt know is dua is not popular in America.

    Nobody knows who dua is in America that’s why future nostalgia debuted at number 4.

    Dua= good marketing and aggressive payola

    • #WAP November 29, 2020

      “ dua is not popular in America.” 😂 Dua has 2 GRAMMY awards. Dua has a SOLO #2 hit in the billboard hot 100. Dua’s second album has spawned multiple hits, acclaim, and SIX (6) Grammy nominations including ALBUM OF THE YEAR! If Dua isn’t big in the US, what does that make Camila since Camila has none of Dua’s accolades 😂

      • Clarks0o0ñ November 29, 2020

        Look who showed up, a flopmani stan
        😂😂

        Ur not worth a response

        When ur faves releases an album, then u can speak to me, but until then I will just keep ignoring ur faģg0t àss
        😴😴😴
        PURRRRR 💅💅😌😌

      • AJ November 29, 2020

        Dua is the critics and payola queen but fans actually don’t care. Her album sold less than 18k yet she spawned collabs with Madonna and Missy Elliot and scored a remix album as well as multiple deluxe versions and then a side 2 to the album without shady tactics? I think not. No established artist could get away with those sales and somehow score a massive A&R budget like dual lips without some shady tactics like bloody money, secks money or something else etc.

    • IKNOWTHETRUTH November 29, 2020

      LOL SOOOOO WHAT DOES THAT MAKE CUNTMILA 😂😂😂😂

  12. eric November 29, 2020

    The album’s sound is mostly good for what it is, but singing like a former rock star in her elder years isn’t very appealing for a young singer like Miley whose voice was clear and fluid just 3 years ago.

    • Clarks0o0ñ November 29, 2020

      “singing like a former rock star in her elder years isn’t very appealing for a young singer like Miley ”

      Harry styles did the same thing, copying 80s rock stars like david Bowie from the look to their sound etc and he is winning

  13. Clarks0o0ñ November 29, 2020

    Everybody is flopping. 😩
    Why?

    Miley should have collaborated with megan thee stallion or ariana instead of dua.

    Since she was going for a rock sound, she should have collaborated with harry styles also.

  14. POPS+Muva November 29, 2020

    Idk who needs to see this but Miley or her team if you are here on TGJ I’m gonna tell you the problem. Miley should be doing Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez numbers but she isn’t. she barely is outdoing Demi Lovato. Miley has been flopping ever since she ditched HIP HOP. There I said it. it needed to be said. Miley’s Bangerz was a moment. It defined a new generation. I was behind her, we were all behind her. She was outshining the biggest stars of music with shock factor and good music. We wanted Bangerz 2.0 from Miley and instead she ditched it and went country, changed her image now she’s a rockstar. we don’t care.We want a ratchet ghetto album maybe add Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, Ty dolla sign, Summer walker etc that’s gonna bring her to the top. get Mike Will Made It

    • Paulo November 29, 2020

      Demi Lovato had 4 songs top iTunes this year alone and outsold Miley by a 20k margin when Tell Me You Love Me and Younger Now came out. Miley Cyrus is not outdoing Demi in any front and neither is Big Head Gomez

      • POPS+Muva November 30, 2020

        “demi lovato had 4 songs top itunes” LMAOOOO did you really just type that… Miley has a number 1 so does Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande.. Demi Lovato will never get a number 1. she’s at the bottom of the list. the ranking goes Ariana Grande> Selena Gomez> Miley Cyrus> Demi Lovato

      • Paulo November 30, 2020

        Yes I did cause it’s true dumb crackhead. I know you’re upset over your fav underperforming but don’t be bitter, be grateful she’s still singing and delivering material

  15. #WAP November 29, 2020

    Honestly, I expected less with how midnight sky performed (it was a bop, but it kinda flopped). Mikey screwed herself by speaking negatively about hip hop culture after appropriating it for years. Also, she hasn’t found her sound – every album of hers sounds completely different (and not exactly in a good way). She seems like she’s lost…

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) November 29, 2020

      I’m seeing Xtina in her but not the vocal part. They both in RCA which means they wont support the album unless all her singles went to top 10 or a decent numbers on the first week. It’s a shame even bangerz was a commercial success but they only released 3 singles…💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿

  16. Paulo November 29, 2020

    The way they hyped this on the internet I thought it’d do better streaming numbers at least

  17. MessyBoots November 29, 2020

    I checked out the album b/c aside from the singles on Younger Now I dipped out on Miley that era.

    It’s actually a great record. The problem is stylistically it doesnt fit into mainstream pop in 2020.

    It’s a heavy 80s rock inspired sound reminiscent of Debbie Harry, Joan Jett, and Stevie Nicks.

    Last era she wanted to be Dolly Parton. During Bangerz she wanted to be Rihanna.

    Miley has an identity crisis.

    Even Madonna still kept her core pop sound when doing her reinventions.

  18. AJ November 29, 2020

    Haha no one checking for Miley anymore. The culture vulture has well and truly fallen from grace, even by trying to leach on to payola Queen dua lipa. She probably bought the collab before realising the public has seen through dual lips shady airplay tactics and lack of talent.

  19. Slick November 29, 2020

    She is vocally talented. Sales grammy and numbers don’t reflect wether artist plus music is really good anymore.
