Miley Cyrus has released her first new single in two years, and it was worth the wait. ‘Malibu’ dropped today, May 11, and it’s re-solidified Miley’s position as the reigning pop princess. (Also, 2012 Miley vibes anyone?) Watch the music video right here!
Miley Cyrus, 24, is back, y’all! Watch the music video for her new song “Malibu” above!
Talk about a comeback track. “Malibu” is a rollicking acoustic ballad — not quite a jam, but it’s catchy nonetheless — however; it’s really the video that we have to talk about. As Miley prances around on the beach in various boho outfits with a huge bunch of rainbow balloons trailing in her wake, we have to say we’re reminded of that simple, pre-Bangerz time when it wasn’t a surprise to see her in cowboy boots. Smiley Miley is alive and well!
Miley shared a snippet of the song on Twitter on May 10, and though it was only a few seconds long, we immediately liked what we heard. The best part of all is that it’s just a taste of what’s coming from the “Wrecking Ball” singer later this year…in the form of a new album! “My record is political, but the sound bite doesn’t stop there,” Miley told Billboard of her next record in a recent interview. “Because you can write something beautiful and you know E! News will ruin our lives and say, ‘This is a political record.’ Because then I’m the Dixie Chicks and I’m getting my album smashed in the streets, and that’s not what I want. I want to talk to people in a compassionate, understanding way — which people aren’t doing.” Can’t wait to see where Miley takes us next!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of “Malibu?”
