"Wrecking Ball" is a song recorded by American singer Miley Cyrus for her fourth studio album, Bangerz (2013). It was released on August 25, 2013, by RCA Records as the album's second single. The song was written by Dr. Luke and Cirkut, who also served as the producers, as well as Mozella, Stephan Moccio, Sacha Skarbek, David Kim, and Cyrus. "Wrecking Ball" is a pop ballad which lyrically discusses the deterioration of a relationship. "Wrecking Ball" debuted on the US Billboard Hot 100 at number 50, and later became Cyrus' first number-one single in the United States after the release of its controversial music video; it retained the peak position during the following week. Nine weeks later, the track returned to number one, and consequently had the largest gap between number-one sittings in Billboard Hot 100 history within a single chart run. As of January 2014, "Wrecking Ball" has sold three million copies in the United States. Internationally, the song charted strongly; it topped the charts in Canada, Spain and the United Kingdom, and charted in the top ten throughout much of Europe and Oceania.more »
