Miley Cyrus has signed an exclusive record deal with Columbia Records, after seven years and fours albums on RCA. Both record labels are owned by Sony, but reports state that Columbia chairman Ron Perry courted her over to his label, and succeeded because of his positive relationship with her co-managers Adam Leber and Tish Cyrus, helping Miley sign with the label very quickly.
As well as her sister Noah Cyrus and Lil Nas X, who collaborated with their father Billy Ray Cyrus on his 2019 hit “Old Town Road”, the record label has many other stars under their stable including Adele, Beyoncé, Calvin Harris, AC/DC, Harry Styles, Blink-182 and 24kGoldn.
Miley had been signed under RCA since 2013, with the album helming her Billboard 200 chart-topping album Bangerz, which birthed the Billboard #1 single “Wrecking Ball” and #2 single “We Can’t Stop”.
She also independently dropped her psychedelic collaboration with Flaming Lips, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz in 2015, which was then re-released by RCA two years later.
Her latest album Plastic Hearts was released in November, featuring collaborations with Dua Lipa, Billy Idol, Joan Jett and Stevie Nicks. It was her first entry into the Billboard Rock album chart, which she topped, with eight entries on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs, including “Midnight Sky” which was number eight on the ranking.
