Miley Cyrus tops the charts

'Breakout' debuts at #1, selling 371,000 copies

The transition from “Hannah Montana” to Miley Cyrus at the top of the album sales chart has been completed.

Cyrus’ “Breakout” (Hollywood) not only debuted at No. 1, its first-week sales surpassed the tallies registered by the two “Hannah Montana” soundtracks, which also debuted at No. 1. The queen of tweens’ “Breakout” sold 371,000 copies in the week ended Sunday, according to Nielsen Soundscan data.

That first-week number bested the 326,000 of “Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus” last summer and the 261,000 for the first “Hannah Montana” in late 2006. The first one has sold 3.6 million copies; volume two has moved 3.1 million.

The “Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert” pic grossed $65 million during its theatrical release, which started in February.

At No. 2, Sugarland’s deluxe version of “Love on the Inside” (Mercury Nashville) sold 314,000 copies, registering the biggest sales week of the year for a country act. The duo’s 2006 release, “Enjoy the Ride,” peaked at No. 4 on sales of 211,000.

Release is a rare example of a deluxe edition preceding the release of a standard edition. Album with five fewer tracks went on sale Tuesday.

The “Mamma Mia!” soundtrack nearly doubled its sales for a second week in a row, moving 168,000 copies and staying put at No. 3.

Nearly three months after it was made available for free, Nine Inch Nails’ “The Slip” (Null) sold 29,000 copies in the first week it was available in physical form. Disc made its debut at No. 13.

The self-titled debut on Anti- from One Day as a Lion, a project featuring Zach de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine and Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore, sold 17,000 to open at No. 28.

Two debuts selling 14,000 copies each were Candlebox’s first album in 10 years, “Into the Sun” (Silent Majority/Warner), at No. 32 and Noel Gourdin’s “After My Time” (Sony Urban) at No. 36.

Last week’s No. 1, Nas’ untitled album, sold 63,000 and dipped to No. 8.
