Miley Cyrus is the most talked about artists in the world at the moment and she is only going up from here.
More than a month ago, she shocked the world with her show stopping performance at the MTV Video Music Awards that is still being discussed. Along with being a host on Saturday Night Live, the premiere of her one-hour documentary, Miley: The Movement, on MTV and the release of her very first Billboard #1 single and controversial video for ‘Wrecking Ball,’ the past three months have been anything but lackluster for Cyrus.
Despite all of this, she still had time to release her very first album since the debut of her edgy new image. The album, released on October 8, is appropriately titled ‘Bangerz’.
With each track, Cyrus proves to the world that she is more than just a country singer like her dad. Instead, she chooses to fill the album with pop-hop songs that are sure to get the hips moving of anyone who listens.
The album is packaged with collaborations from some of the top artists and producers in the music industry, including Britney Spears, Big Sean, Ludacris and Pharrell Williams. Her astonishing vocals are shown off immediately in the opening track “Adore You,” in which she bellows over a former relationship. Her vocal capability can also be heard on songs like “Drive” and “FU.”
Cyrus shows off her skills as a rapper on songs such as “Love Money Party” and “Do My Thang,” both of which rival the talent of female rap powerhouse Nicki Minaj.
Other standout tracks include “#GETITRIGHT” and “My Darlin’.”
After one play of ‘Bangerz,’ a repeat of the album will follow soon afterward. With each track it is clear that Cyrus knows who she is both as an artist and as an adult.
Move over Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus has arrived.
