Miley Cyrus’ highly anticipated eighth studio album, Endless Summer Vacation, is on track to become one of the biggest albums in the Philippines this week in terms of digital sales and streaming. The critically acclaimed record reached No. 1 on iTunes Philippines during its first day of release, while its carrier single “Flowers” recently peaked at No. 1 and No. 2 on the iTunes and Spotify Philippines charts, respectively.
Alongside the album’s release, Miley launched the official video for new track “River,” directed by Jacob Bixenman.
Endless Summer Vacation features Miley’s hit single “Flowers” plus twelve additional tracks. A true worldwide smash, “Flowers” spent six weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100—a personal best for Miley. “Flowers” is #1 on US Pop Radio and is the fastest running song in nearly a decade to achieve that position. Additionally, it is the fastest song in history to hit 500 million streams on Spotify. “Flowers” isofficially the longest running UK #1 single by a female solo artist.
In a recently shared clip, Miley gave insight into Endless Summer Vacation.. She notes, “When it comes to the sequencing of Endless Summer Vacation, I divided it by two parts: AM and PM – to kind of represent almost like an act. The AM to me is representing the morning time, where there is a buzz and an energy and a there’s potential of new possibilities. It’s a new day. And in the nighttime, it feels like there is a slinky, seediness and kind of a grime, but a glamour at the same time. In the evening, it’s a great time for rest, a time to recover – or it’s a time to go out and experience the wild side. Los Angeles, there is a certain energy to the night that you can kind of feel trouble boil up to the surface, and it is very inspiring to me.”
