Miley Cyrus dropped her new pop-happy track ‘Malibu‘ this morning, and literal hours later it’s already hit #1 on iTunes.
It’s a cute n’ breezy love ballad about Liam Hemsworth, which no doubt added to the hundreds of thousands of views so far because for better or worse, we’re all highly invested in this relationship.
“[People] are going to talk about me if I come out of a restaurant with Liam,” she told Billboard in an interview published earlier this month. “So why not put the power back in my relationship and say, ‘This is how I feel?”
This is how she feels:
I never came to the beach or stood by the ocean
I never sat by the shore under the sun with my feet in the sand
But you brought me here and I’m happy that you did
‘Cause now I’m as free as birds catching the wind
Is it supposed to be this hot all summer long?
I never would’ve believed you
If three years ago you told me
I’d be here writing this song
Look, it’s not going to win any song writing awards, but it’s simple + cute + catchy as hell.
