A raw recording appears to have leaked via YouTube user ‘LeakableMusics’ of pop star Miley Cyrus singing a stripped down version of the Les Misérables tune ‘On My Own’. Is Eponine in her future? There’s no official word on when, where, or why the song was recorded but the track is now making the viral rounds and filled up our inbox this morning as well.
Miley Ray Cyrus, the daughter of country singer and CHICAGO vet Billy Ray Cyrus, rose to prominence as a teen idol after being cast in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana, in which she portrayed the starring character Miley Stewart. Now aged 20, she has attained a total of six Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, and had five RIAA certified albums by the age of 18.
Her most recent single “We Can’t Stop” was released on June 9, and topped iTunes Store singles charts in thirty countries within ten hours of its release. The song has peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100. In doing so, it ties with “Party in the U.S.A.” as Cyrus’ highest-charting single in the country, and additionally became her 39th entry on the chart, including tracks releases as Hannah Montana. Its accompanying music video was released on June 29. On July 26, it surpassed 100 million views, consequentially becoming the fastest video to attain Vevo certification.
