New Miley Cyrus Album to Feature Hip-Hop Artists
It seemed, at least for a year or so, that Miley Cyrus had stepped away from the recording studio and, instead, was pursuing acting full-time. But, the results for that have been mixed. LOL, even with a limited release, flopped, while the former Disney star known for Hannah Montana did well with a guest spot on Two and a Half Men. Yet, earlier in October, the actress/singer talked about her singing comeback, particularly making a new album with Dr. Luke producing. If you can recall, the highly sought-after producer also did her 2008 song “Party in the U.S.A.”
Although Dr. Luke behind the booth indicates a return, of sorts, to the sounds fans love, Cyrus’ list of collaborators includes a handful of hip-hop stars. Pharrell Williams, to hint at this, shared a photo of him with Cyrus and Tyler the Creator in the studio. Along with these two are Rodney Jerkins and Hit-Boy.
Previously discussing working with Pharrell, Cyrus said: “I worked with Pharrell on a bunch of things, and Pop & Oak, and I’ve just been writing, mostly, focusing on what I want to say, rather than turning it into a label later and not knowing what my sound is going to be.”
A few hints have been dropped about a new single before the end of the year – even one next month. Even if Cyrus’ next release leans more pop or dabbles in hip-hop, both are a departure from “Can’t Be Tamed,” which had her attempting a more grownup sound, albeit with electronic, and image.
