Miley ‘bangs’ out another hit
I think it’s safe to say I’ll lose my man card after writing this, but just like my girls from Icona Pop, “I don’t care!” Side note: I absolutely hate that song.
Miley Cyrus’ fourth studio album, Bangerz, is a win in my book. In fact, it’d be a win if the only song on the album was the fantastic, catchy summer anthem “We Can’t Stop.”
But, “We Can’t Stop” is definitely not the only song on the album. Miley goes much deeper than singing about popping Molly and trying to do lines in the bathroom. Much, much deeper.
This became clear when she released “Wrecking Ball” a few weeks ago. If you can get past the not-so-bonerific images of her swinging naked on an actual wrecking ball, it’s actually a very good song.
I love the fact that Miley mixed pop – her lyrics – and hip-hop – her beats.
We know she’s a pop artist but it’s become obvious that her lifestyle is transitioning into the hip-hop culture. We want artists to express their life through music, and this is exactly what Miley did.
She collaborates with Pharrell on “#GETITRIGHT” – which I predict will be her next big radio hit – French Montana on “FU,” Big Sean on “Love, Money, Party,” Future on “My Darlin,” Ludacris on “Hands in the Air” and Nelly on “4×4,” even though that’s more of a country song. She also collaborated with producer Mike Will on a number of tracks, including “SMS” which features Britney Spears.
Then you have your non-hip-hop influenced songs, such as “Adore You,” “Drive,” “Maybe You’re Right,” “Someone Else,” “Rooting for My Baby” and “On My Own.”
Each song can also fit into separate subsets. You have your horny party songs where Miley just doesn’t care: “We Can’t Stop,” “SMS,” “Love, Money, Party,” “#GETITRIGHT,” “Do My Thang” and “Hands in the Air.”
You have long songs: “Adore You,” “My Darlin” and “Rooting For My Baby.” Then you have not-so-loving songs (sorry Liam): “Wrecking Ball,” “Drive,” “FU,” “Someone Else,” “Maybe You’re Right” and “On My Own.”
Bangerz has a song for just about every mood, unless you’re in an especially gloomy mood or something, but then you most likely wouldn’t be listening to Miley Cyrus anyway.
To put it simply, Bangerz is a banger.
