Miley Cyrus has emerged as quite the musical maverick even since shedding the skin of Hannah Montana.
Indeed, she initially played with Pop on hits such as ‘Party In The USA’ and ‘Wrecking Ball,’ only to veer in the direction of Hip-Hop under the tutelage of Mike WiLL Made-It and will.i.am on the ‘Bangerz’ album.
Most recent LP, ‘Younger Now’ saw Cyrus make a sharp left and embrace sounds that skewed Folk and Country.
Now, as she struts towards the release of her next project, she unleashed ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’ – a collaboration with Mark Ronson that’ll be housed on his forthcoming album.
And while the well-received jam embraces much of the sonic sounds found on ‘Younger,’ the singer has revealed that she’ll be sprinkling more Hip-Hop into her musical mix for her own release.
Cyrus shared the tea during an interview with 95.5 PLJ radio.
She billed the as yet untitled set as a buffet of different sounds, one that fuses work with Mike Will, Ronson, and others.
We’ve long felt that Miley has one of the most interesting tones in today’s Pop landscape, but has yet to consistently produce material that highlights what she’s working with.
While some may compare the singer’s flirtation different sounds as mirroring Madonna’s chameleon nature, we refute such sentiment and simply see it as her having not yet settled into a musical identity. Like, despite having six albums under her belt, can anyone genuinely pin-point Cyrus’ sound?
In any case, we’re enjoying ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’ and hope her “return” to Hip-Hop is less contrived than her previous outing.
