Credit: STAR Magazine. Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball‘ is about to debut atop Billboard Hot 100. Early indications are that it should dethrone Katy Perry’s ‘Roar,’ making it her first Hot 100 No. 1. She’s reached No. 2 with 2009’s ‘Party in the U.S.A.’ and her previous single, ‘We Can’t Stop.’
‘Bal’ boasts 15.5 million U.S. YouTube views over its first two days since the clip premiered on Monday (Sept. 9). Projected over seven days, the streams for the song and video could total a whopping 30 to 45 million in the U.S., a figure that would count toward next week’s Hot 100.
‘Ball’ rose 27-21 on Streaming Songs this week with 2.2 million U.S. streams, a total tallied from user-generated videos featuring the song’s audio (prior to the release of video) and activity on certain audio services that contribute to the chart. ‘Ball’ could sell more than 400,000 downloads for tracking week ending Sunday (Sept. 15). It sold 116,000 in the Nielsen SoundScan week ending Sept. 8.
