Miley’s “Bangerz” ballad has gone full banger.
While the third single from Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz album, “Adore You,” might contain the finest vocal work from her recent string of hits, it’s not exactly the type of track that inspires listeners to ride a giant hot dog. That’s an important consideration for any artist, especially one who’s about to kick off a giant tour packed with “Ren & Stimpy” art.
So, in order to super-size the gently unfolding, lovelorn ballad into a more appropriate, arena-ready knockout, Miley’s team tapped French DJ and producer Cedric Gervais to invigorate the track with a thumping, trance-pop makeover.
The result: Cedric gives the emotional center of the song a cascading signal boost. It’s the type of track you can imagine ten-thousand people losing their collective ish to, in much the same way Gervais transformed Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness” from a maudlin weeper to a cryin’-in-your-dancing-shoes, uh, banger.
So hold on tight, Smilers, ’cause if this remix is any indication, the shows are gonna be one emotional roller coaster.
