Cyrus, the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, sold 128 000 copies of the track in the last seven days scoring what was also her first top ten single in Britain, it said.

In the albums chart, Welsh classical singers Richard and Adam Johnson held onto the number one slot for a second week with their debut release, The Impossible Dream.
