ALSO, MTV Buzzworthy Blog: I’m Already Obsessed With Miley Cyrus’ Next Album (And I Haven’t Even Heard It Yet)
Oh hey! I’m Sam Lansky, and this is my column, Pop Think dedicated to exploring the most important niches of popular culture (and popular music). Ever since Miley Cyrus‘ last studio album, 2010′s Can’t Be Tamed, it’s been like a permanent December waiting for some new Miley tracks to burn up my iTunes. So I was super stoked when she announced plans this month to record her fourth record, which will sound “very adult and sexy and believable.” Yikes!
But a sexy, adult album is exactly the right turn for Miley, who’s 19 and about to become a wife. She’s all grown up from her Disney days, and she’s got a roster of urban-pop producers at the helm to help develop the sound, leading me to believe this could be Miley’s strongest effort yet. Which is why I’m looking back at Miley’s artistic evolution, and looking forward to see what the future might hold. It’s a liberty walk, y’all, and I am 100 percent in support of the liberation of Miley.
It’s always a little weird watching our tween idols grow up, isn’t it? As the star of the Disney Channel original series Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus started off as a toothy, adorably goofy kid with a surprisingly sultry country voice passed down from her dad, country superstar Billy Ray Cyrus. When she started her music career, Miley made squeaky clean songs like “G.N.O.” But even her first big mainstream single, “See You Again,” was surprisingly slinky, a dance-pop confection that captured the awkwardness of adolescence in its shouty refrain.
