We Can't Stop | Miley Cyrus

Rating: ★★★★☆

Apparently this year, the former Disney girls have been putting their careers in high gear, as we've seen new releases from Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez, and now it's time for Miley Cyrus to come back into the public eye with "We Can't Stop." Her fans have been littering the Internet in anticipation of the song, and now the time has come for it's release.

I got a glimpse of the cover while shuffling around Gaga Daily before the song was released, and the cover immediately made me think that "We Can't Stop" would be a massive rave song. Now that the song is finally out, I'm surprised how much different the song is than I was originally expecting, because it's actually got more of a slow tempo. I'm also equally as surprised because of the fact that I actually like the song. I never expected that the former Hannah Montana would put out a song this good.

The song's a bit more mature than her previous work, as Cyrus describes the scene of a wild part and sings of how she won't quiet down and will do as she pleases at her party. She's obviously come a long way since throwing her "Party in the U.S.A." and wearing a long blonde wig to make a television show. The lyrics are pretty shallow, but they could be a lot worse.

I do enjoy the overall sound of the song, which is more than I was expecting before. In terms of the former Disney stars, I've always preferred Selena Gomez rather than Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus. However, all three ladies have been putting out pretty good material this year. Of course, considering the material already released from the album, I think that Selena Gomez's Stars Dance is going to slay over DEMI and the upcoming album from Cyrus, but perhaps only time can tell.


  1. I was also surprised since I thought it would be an electro/up-tempo dance song! Glad she's not afraid to experiment with different sounds though.

  2. Thanks for commenting, Tony! It makes me happy to know that more and more people are learning about this site and take the time to read my posts :)

    And as for experimentation, I've noticed that a lot of artists have been toying around with different sounds lately, and I'm loving it! It makes for some great listening experiences!
