Since its release on March 24, the soundtrack has scanned over 554,000 units. In addition to being the #1 selling album in the U.S., it is also #1 on the Billboard Soundtrack chart for the fourth consecutive week.

Digital sales were strong during the past week with over 2 million digital tracks sold to date. The album ranked #1 on the iTunes Music Store (and various other digital retailers), with 3 singles in the Top 10 and 7 singles in the Top 100. The album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Digital Album chart during the week of its release and reclaimed the top position this week.

The Miley Cyrus single "The Climb" currently has over 27 million in audience this week across multiple formats, including Top 40 (#17), Hot AC (#20), Mainstream AC (#14) and Country (#38).

The soundtrack marks the fourth No. 1 album for 16-year-old singer/songwriter Miley Cyrus, star of "Hannah Montana: The Movie" and the hit Disney Channel series "Hannah Montana." Cyrus is the youngest ever recording artist with four #1 albums in less than 3 years.

The Walt Disney Records soundtrack boasts plenty of pop gems, including "You'll Always Find Your Way Back Home" (co-written by Taylor Swift), "Let's Get Crazy," "The Good Life," "Let's Do This," "Spotlight," "What's Not to Like," and a new version of "The Best of Both Worlds," all performed by Miley as Hannah Montana; "The Climb" (Produced by John Shanks), "Don't Walk Away," "Dream" and "Hoedown Throwdown" by Miley Cyrus; and "Butterfly Fly Away," a tender and unforgettable duet by Miley and Billy Ray produced by Glen Ballard.

Also included, the hit single "Back To Tennessee" by Billy Ray Cyrus (it's also the title track from his new album); Rascal Flatts performing "Backwards" and an acoustic version of their hit "Bless the Broken Road;" "Everything I Want" and "Game Over" by Hollywood Records' U.K. sensation Steve Rushton; and "Crazier" by singer/songwriter Taylor Swift.

In 2006, Miley Cyrus landed the starring role in the Disney Channel's "Hannah Montana," which instantly became a ratings blockbuster. That year, the first "Hannah Montana" CD came out on Walt Disney Records, becoming the first TV soundtrack to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. The album is now certified triple-platinum.

With her triple-platinum 2007 two-disc set, "Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus" Miley set the stage for her record-shattering "Best of Both Worlds" tour. She also had the #1 film in the country with the Walt Disney Pictures 3-D release, "Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert." Last summer she released her platinum-certified "Breakout" album, for which she co-wrote 8 of the 13 tracks. Currently, Cyrus is in the third season of her hit television series "Hannah Montana" and recently published her first ever book "Miles to Go."

Walt Disney Records is part of the Disney Music Group, the recorded music and music publishing arm of The Walt Disney Company.
