Miley Cyrus may have had some bad health luck recently, but her good fortune grows when it comes to album sales. The wild singer's most recent release "Bangerz" has just reached the one million-albums-sold milestone, according to the audience and sales tracking system Nielson SoundScan and Billboard.com.

Bangerz, Cyrus' first record with RCA, was released October 8, 2013 and has sold 1.003 million records in that time.

The album debuted in the top spot on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, selling 270,000 copies in the first week.

"Bangerz" is the 21-year-old's fifth number one album and even in its 29th week of release is still number 42 on the Billboard 200.

The album also gave Cyrus her first number one single with "Wrecking Ball" securing the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 after the release of the song's music video in which a nude Cyrus rides on top of an actual wrecking ball.

Despite the success of "Bangerz," Cyrus' biggest selling album is the first soundtrack released for the Disney Channel show "Hannah Montana."

That soundtrack was released in 2006 and has sold over 3.7 million copies. However, "Bangerz" is on track and paced to dethrone that record as Cyrus' best seller.
