Earlier today, Miley Cyrus shared a photo on Twitter from her music video for her new single, “Prisoner.” The single and music video came out yesterday on all streaming platforms, featuring Dua Lipa. This is the most recent out of a stream of music released in the latter half of this year. Two of the singles released came from live performances while the others were singles.
“SHE IS COMING FOR ALL THE CATEGORIES,” the post reads.
The song does not mark Miley’s first venture into genre-bending sound. In fact, her experimental style has developed over years and years of trial and error. Miley Cyrus has proven time and time again that she is way more than just a pop star or a country star. This new release reinforces that sentiment.
The provocative photo comes from the set of the high-energy music video. In the video, Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa drive around a tour bus dressed in exciting clothes. They eventually get to a stage to perform in a punk rock bar setting, fitting the aesthetic of the video.
Cyrus continues to develop her unique sense of style and sound through each of the releases of this year. She has come a long way from the little girl we saw on Hannah Montana, both artistically and as a person. The trajectory of her sound has followed closely alongside her maturation. As Miley Cyrus has experimented with her lifestyle and her looks, she has reflected that experimentation in her music.
Dolly Parton’s Relationship with Miley Cyrus
Country music legend, Dolly Parton has shared a very intimate relationship with Miley Cyrus since Miley’s birth. Parton was named Cyrus’ Godmother and has since kept up with her closely. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Dolly Parton spoke on her relationship with Cyrus and her appearances on Hannah Montana. “Everybody always complains about all the things she goes through and all the things she’s done,” Parton says to Vanity Fair. “But she’s just like me. She’s finding her own way, she’s finding her own space, and she’ll always land on her feet.” Dolly Parton has shown overwhelming support for her Goddaughter through all the ups and downs of her career. Surely she is just as proud of her most recent release.
