Miley Cyrus rockets to number one on the album chart

Miley Cyrus' amazing week just got better - her new album Bangerz has debuted at the top of the countdown just days after she landed a chart double in the U.K.

The pop star's new release has sold 270,000 copies in its first week, rocketing Miley to the top of the Billboard 200.

The album debuted at the top of the U.K. charts on Sunday (13Oct13).

Bangerz, Cyrus' fifth number one, sold 186,000 more copies than Panic! at the Disco's Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die, which debuts at two on the new chart.

Drake's Nothing Was the Same, My Name is My Name by Pusha T and Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2) round out the top five, while the soundtrack to Glee's Cory Monteith tribute episode, rockers Korn and last season's The Voice champion Cassadee Pope all debut in the top 10.

Meanwhile, Lorde has scored a third week at the top of the singles chart with Royals.

The track has prevented Miley Cyrus from landing a second chart double in a week - her Wrecking Ball hit has jumped back up the countdown to number two.

Katy Perry's Roar slips to three, Avicii's Wake Me Up! holds at four and Drake's Hold On, We're Going Home rounds out the new top five.
