Pop star Miley Cyrus is all grown up in her new single “We Can’t Stop,” which was released on Monday.
As if her edgier, sexier style and number one spot in this year’s Maxim Hot 100 weren’t any indication, the singer is heading towards a more grown-up image and she is not afraid to live it up. The song might sound like a slow jam from the Hannah Montana soundtrack at first…until you actually hear the lyrics.
It starts off with a bellowing bass voice singing, “it’s our party, we do what we want” that sets the tone of the song. It’s Miley’s party, but she encourages everyone to be the life of the party, too.
“We like to party/ Dancing with Molly/ Doing whatever we can’t,” highlights Cyrus' rebellious attitude. And it would not be a Miley party without some twerking involved: “To my homegirls here with the big butts/ Shaking it like we’re at the strip club.”
The single produced by hip-hop producer Mike WiLL Made It, also the mastermind behind club hits like Kanye West’s “Mercy,” seems unlikely as an upbeat dance hit candidate, but WiLL’s productions typically rock the club scene.
The single will be featured on Miley’s fourth studio album. There is no word yet on when the album will be released, but it is expected to drop some time this year. Hit-Boy and Pharrell also produce songs on the album, and there may be a potential collaboration with Justin Bieber on the record, too.
The music video for the single is expected to premiere next week. There's no word yet on whether or not Miley will break out the unicorn onesies again, but based on the teaser photo she posted on Twitter, there will probably be a lot of twerking involved.
