In 2013, Cyrus hired Larry Rudolph as her manager, who had previously worked with Britney Spears. That same year, she left Hollywood Records after signing a recording contract with RCA Records, through which her fourth studio album Bangerz was released in October. “We Can’t Stop” was serviced as the lead single from the record on June 3. The track peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100. It also became her first number-one single in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. It set a Vevo record after garnering over 10 million views within 24 hours of its release, and later broke the website’s record for being the fastest video to reach 100 million views, accomplishing this feat in 37 days.

While working on the album, Cyrus appeared in various collaborations. She provided guest vocals for the Rock Mafia song “Morning Sun”, and provided background vocals for the song “Decisions” by Borgore. Cyrus and Hemsworth later appeared in the music video for the song. Cyrus appeared on the Snoop Lion song “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks”, released as the first single for his album Reincarnated on April 4, 2013. She later appeared on the song “Fall Down”, which was released as a promotional single for will.i.am’s album #willpower on April 16, 2013. The single debuted at number 58 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Cyrus’ first single to chart on the Hot 100 since “Can’t Be Tamed”. The single also debuted inside the Top 20 in Canada, as well as the Top 40 in the UK. On May 23, 2013, it was confirmed that Cyrus would be featured on the Mike Will Made It single “23”, alongside artists Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J. She also provided guest vocals on the Lil Twist single “Twerk”, which also featured vocals from Justin Bieber. Several additional collaborations saw Cyrus involved with elements of hip hop music.

“Wrecking Ball” was released as the second single from Bangerz. Its accompanying music video was released on September 9, 2013, and set another Vevo record for 19.3 million views in the first twenty-four hours of its release. “Wrecking Ball” became Cyrus’ first single to reach number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. On October 2, 2013, MTV aired the documentary Miley: The Movement, which chronicled the recording of Bangerz and featured behind the scenes footage such as Cyrus preparing for her 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance. On October 5, 2013, Cyrus hosted Saturday Night Live for the second time; she received mostly positive reviews from critics, who generally praised her acting talent and stated the episode was “good but not great” and competent, however some critics stated that the episode was “lackluster”. On November 5, 2013, rapper Future’s “Real and True” was released as a single, which featured Cyrus and Mr. Hudson and an accompanying music video premiered five days later on November 10, 2013. In December 2013, Cyrus announced tentative plans to release an acoustic album in 2014. On January 29, 2014, she played an acoustic concert show on MTV Unplugged, performing songs from Bangerz and featuring a guest appearance from Madonna. It became the highest rated MTV Unplugged in the past decade with over 1.7 million streams. Cyrus was featured in Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2014 ad campaign along with Natalie Westling and Esmerelda Seay Reynolds.

In April 2014, Madonna announced that Cyrus would be the guest curator for the month for Art for Freedom, a global digital initiative designed to fuel free speech – to respond, address and protest persecution and discrimination around the world. Cyrus will collaborate with Madonna to select daily submissions which will be showcased on the Art for Freedom website. In the same month, Time again included her on the Time 100. Her write-up was written by Godmother Dolly Parton who stated, “…the girl can write. The girl can sing. The girl is smart. And she doesn’t have to be so drastic. But I will respect her choices. I did it my way, so why can’t she do it her way?” In June 2014, two leftover songs from the Bangerz album surfaced on the internet, “Pretty Girls (Fun)”, and “Last Goodbye”.

On 1 July 2014, Forbes published a list of the most powerful celebrities of the moment, Cyrus placed at #17, ahead of Mariah Carey and Taylor Swift, they stated that her earnings are around $36 million and that “Cyrus returns to the Forbes Celebrity 100 after a four-year absence. The last time she made our list was when she was still rolling in Hannah Montana money. Now the pop singer is all grown up and courting controversy at every turn.”
