Hear Miley Cyrus' 'edgy' new song 'We Can't Stop'
Miley Cyrus’ new single “We Can’t Stop” (RCA) is part dance anthem, part poke in the eye to those who don’t want the 20-year-old Disney princess to grow up.
The track, produced by Mike WiLL Made It of 2 Chainz fame, feels more like Rihanna circa “Umbrella” than something cutting edge. Maybe that’s why Cyrus, who co-wrote the song with Mike WiLL and Rock City, feels the need to generate some attention with lyrics about strip clubs and drug use. (“La-da-di-da-di, we like to party,” she sings. “Dancing with Molly, doing whatever we can’t.”)
Cyrus' fans ate it up, with the video generating 1.8 million views in a day on YouTube and the single zooming to No. 1 on iTunes.
Unfortunately, the "adult" lyrics don't really make her seem any cooler, just that she’s trying too hard. They also feel out of place in what could have been a catchy song.
