BURBANK, California, Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Miley Cyrus' new single, "Party In The USA" debuts at # 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 today, selling over 225,000 units, and following 3 consecutive weeks of having the # 1 most added song at Top 40 Radio. Miley's # 2 debut ties for the highest debut of 2009 alongside Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling."
