More Info:

With three albums released by the age of 15, Miley has already had the level of success that most artists only dream about: over 10 million albums sold! Now with Breakout, Miley takes us with her on a rock n'roll journey. The music is infectious and the hits are undeniable.


''Breakout'' is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Miley Cyrus. The album was released on July 22, 2008 by Hollywood Records and is Cyrus' first not affiliated with the ''Hannah Montana'' franchise. This, coupled by Cyrus' fondness for the album's first track, influenced the title of the album. Cyrus composed many of the songs on ''Breakout'' as she traveled on the Best of Both Worlds Tour (2007-08), co-writing eight of the album's twelve songs; three are covers, and one is a remix. Most songs feature writing credits for Antonina Armato and Tim James. Overall, ''Breakout'' is dominant on pop rock but explores a variety of other musical genres. Lyrical themes addressed in the album relate to breakups and coming of age.

''Breakout'' was met with generally favorable reception from critics, though some believed the tracks were not a big departure from the ''Hannah Montana'' franchise. The album encountered commercial success and introduced Cyrus in new countries. The album peaked at number one on the ''Billboard'' 200 for one week, Cyrus' third album to do so, and was eventually certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). As of July 2010, ''Breakout'' has sold 1.5 million copies in the United States. Outside the US, ''Breakout'' topped the Canadian Albums Chart for two consecutive weeks and the Australian Albums Chart for one week. The album also charted within the top ten in Italy, Japan, and New Zealand.

Three singles were released from ''Breakout''. "7 Things" was released as the lead single from the album; it was commercially successful, reaching the top ten on charts in Australia, Japan, Norway, and the United States. It was followed by the Rock Mafia remix of "See You Again", which was released in countries in which the original version was not. The remix expanded on the success of "See You Again" by appearing on charts in several countries. The third single, "Fly on the Wall" was the final single, though it did not duplicate the success of previous singles, reaching its highest peak at number sixteen in the UK Singles Chart. Cyrus performed songs from ''Breakout'' at numerous venues and embarked on her first world tour, the Wonder World Tour, to promote the album in late 2009. - Wikipedia

That title's an understatement. Billy Ray's daughter no longer needs the Hannah Montana signifier to move product, and with "next Britney" chatter at critical mass, Breakout is almost guaranteed to debut at the very top of the charts. Sure, she does things that anybody over the age of 17 doesn't remotely comprehend'"see her quasi-viral "dance off" video set to Madonna's "4 Minutes." Or changing her name to Miley Ray Cyrus'"does she really want people thinking about "Achy Breaky Heart" when they take her album to the counter? But those minor quibbles aside, thus far Cyrus's misbehavior isn't anything that your average teen/tween wouldn't dabble in, so we're not too worried about the tabloids. As for the music, she has the production armada to drop dance-pop bombs that will render the likes of Ashlee and Avril obsolete. Just keep her away from Red Bull and Cheetos.
