Miley Ray Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus, November 23, 1992) is an American actress, singer, and songwriter. Her father is country singer Billy Ray Cyrus. She held minor roles in the television series Doc and the film Big Fish in her childhood. In 2006, Cyrus rose to prominence as a teen idol after being cast in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana, in which she portrayed the starring character Miley Stewart. After signing a recording contract with Hollywood Records in 2007, Cyrus released her debut studio album Meet Miley Cyrus. It was certified quadruple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for exceeding four million shipments, and produced the hit single "See You Again".

In 2008, Cyrus released her second album Breakout, which featured the successful track "7 Things", and launched her film career as the voice actress in the animated film Bolt. In 2009, Cyrus starred in the feature film Hannah Montana: The Movie; its soundtrack produced the hit single "The Climb". Cyrus developed a maturing image with the EP The Time of Our Lives (2009), which featured the successful track "Party in the U.S.A.". The transition continued with her third album Can't Be Tamed (2010); however, it made little commercial impact and became the lowest-selling record of her career. Later that year, Cyrus starred in the coming-of-age film The Last Song. During its production, she was involved in an on-again, off-again relationship with her co-star Liam Hemsworth; the couple ultimately separated after ending their year-long engagement in 2013.

Cyrus focused on her acting career with several television and film appearances throughout 2011 and 2012. Cyrus later signed a recording contract with RCA Records, and generated controversy by cultivating a sexually explicit public image while promoting her fourth studio album Bangerz (2013). Its singles "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball" were promoted with controversial music videos; the latter became her first number-one hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

Cyrus has had five non-consecutive number-one albums on the U.S. Billboard 200, two of which are soundtracks credited to her titular character Hannah Montana, and has earned numerous awards and nominations. In 2010, Cyrus ranked number thirteen on Forbes '​ Celebrity 100, and was named the "Most Charted Teenager" in the 2011 Guinness World Records with twenty-nine Billboard Hot 100 entries as of November 2009. In 2013, she was declared "Artist of the Year" by MTV.

The discography of American recording artist Miley Cyrus consists of three studio albums, three live albums, two compilation albums, two remix albums, five soundtrack albums, one extended play (EP), eighteen singles, ten promotional singles, two video albums, and eleven music videos. Prior to launching a musical career of her own, Cyrus starred as the titular character on the popular television series Hannah Montana, which first aired in March 2006. Consequently, the series became a franchise that released several soundtracks, where she performed under character. The first Hannah Montana soundtrack was released in 2006. Cyrus then signed a record deal with Hollywood Records to launch a career under her own name. In 2007, the singer released the double-disc album Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus. The first disc, Hannah Montana 2, of the album was Hannah Montana '​s second season soundtrack, while the second disc, Meet Miley Cyrus, was Cyrus' debut studio album. In 2009, Cyrus released the Hannah Montana: The Movie soundtrack. Later in 2009, the Hannah Montana 3 soundtrack and the EP The Time of Our Lives followed. The singer later met with a decline in sales in 2010, with both her third studio album, Can't Be Tamed and Hannah Montana Forever, being unable to duplicate her prior success.

Featured album

Breakout is the second studio album by American recording artist Miley Cyrus. The album was released on July 22, 2008 in the USA by Hollywood Records and is Cyrus' first not affiliated with the Hannah Montana franchise. On September 14, 2008 it was released internationally. 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 13 new songs. 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.

Featured song

"When I Look at You" is a power ballad performed by American recording artist and actress Miley Cyrus. The song was written by John Shanks and Hillary Lindsey and produced by Shanks. It was released on March 1, 2010 by Hollywood Records as the second and final single from Cyrus's first extended play, The Time of Our Lives (2009). A remix version titled "Te Miro a Ti", featuring Spanish singer David Bisbal was released later; in it, Cyrus sings her lines in English, while Bisbal's are mingled in both English and Spanish. "When I Look at You" was featured on the 2010 film The Last Song and its corresponding soundtrack, being used to promote the film. The song contains an instrumentation primarily based on piano, while its lyrics speak of a dream boy.
