Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” nude music is her second single from her upcoming “Bangerz” album and is arguably a more provocative video than its predecessor, “We Can’t Stop”, according to Billboard.
“Wrecking Ball” received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who appreciated its lyrical content and overall production. However, some critics questioned if Cyrus’ emotional delivery was genuine, since she had recently generated controversy for her increasingly sexual image.
It debuted on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 at number fifty, 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.
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.
An accompanying music video for “Wrecking Ball” was released on September 9, 2013. It featured close-up scenes of Cyrus tearfully singing, reminiscent of the clip for “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinéad O’Connor, interspersed with footage of a nude Cyrus swinging on a wrecking ball.
Critics were divided in their opinions of the music video, feeling that it was more provocative than the clip for her previous single “We Can’t Stop”.
