Miley Cyrus’ new single “We Can’t Stop” has finally arrived!
The anticipation of Miley Cyrus‘ new single, “We Cant Stop,” has slowly been killing us, but now we can attempt to restore ourselves because the Mike WiLL Made It-produced track has officially dropped! Slated as the first song off her forthcoming album, “We Can’t Stop” hails the entrance of Miley’s totally grown-up new sound, and also the end of any teeeeny tiny trace of Disney in her whatsoever! Because did we mention “We Can’t Stop” is REPLETE with NSFW references? Like, a lyric about an illegal substance everywhere you turn? So, join us in saying “PEACE!” to the sunshine-y backyard BBQ party vibes of “Party In The U.S.A,” and please welcome the twerkin’ in da club, Molly-poppin’ Miley!
Listen to Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” after the jump.
Set to a hazy, mid-tempo, laid-back track, “We Can’t Stop” has the “Ashtrays And Heartbreaks” singer crooning about a top-quality rager: “Red cups and sweaty bodies everywhere/ Hands in the air like we don’t care.” OOh, “red cups” of WHAT, Milers? Sparkling cider, right? Nope. It’s not that kind of party. Cut to the chorus: “We like to party/ Dancing with Molly/ Doing whatever we want/ This is our house/ This is our rules/ And we can’t stop/ And we won’t stop.” (Side note: Miley, have you ever seen Kendrick Lamar‘s “B****, Don’t Kill My Vibe” video?)
Later, fed up with those pesky toilet queues, Miley mentions something about what sounds like “lines in the bathroom.” Uhhhh, “lines,” you say? OK, hey, maybe we’re just acting a little prudish. After all, Miley promises, “To my homegirls here with the big butts/ Shaking it like we at a strip club/ Remember only God can judge us.” So, there might be copious amounts of “big butts,” “Molly,” and “lines” up in this club, but don’t worry — only God can judge. Certainly not us.
Now, the Disney/”Hannah Montana” Miley of yesteryear might have liked to sing about fetes (“Party In The U.S.A.“), but “We Can’t Stop” marks a major turning point in the 20-year-old’s career — that turning point being that it’s Miley’s party and she’ll take Molly if she wants to. And that ANYTHING could come out of her mouth. Or nose.
