Miley Cyrus appearing nude in her new music video has attracted more than 10 million hits in a matter of hours of being posted on YouTube.
The 20-year-old singer released the three-and-a-half minute clip for Wrecking Ball late on Monday.
The video opens with a close-up of Cyrus singing the lyrics and then shows her seductively holding a sledgehammer
A wrecking ball blasts through a wall behind her in slow motion as she walks toward the camera and moments later Miley swings on top of the apparatus, first clothed and later fully nude.
Terry Richardson is credited with directing the video for Cyrus' latest single, from her forthcoming album Bangerz.
Its release comes just two weeks after the singer's highly controversial performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, which saw her stripping down and twerking against Robin Thicke
