Released: 6th October 2013.
Lately Miley Cyrus has been making waves more for her bizarre music videos and controversial, scandalous live performances than for the standard of her music and with her disrobing completely to film the accompanying video for her new single, the headlines are sure to be set ablaze once more by her seemingly no-limits display of sexuality. However, is there any substance behind all the hype?
The second single release from her boldly titled forthcoming LP, 'Bangerz', "Wrecking Ball", already a #1 hit in the US, is a powerful pop ballad that showcases the full extent and range of Miley's vocals. The verses are melodious and delicately crooned but it's the dynamite chorus that sends the song hurtling towards stratospheric heights with Miley unleashing every ounce of passion to create a truly emotional banger. Never before has Miley delivered such a moving, convincing, impressive display of her too-often-ignored talent and the end result is nothing short of breathtaking. Behind all the media frenzy, Miley has emerged with a track worthy of the accolade "Single of the Year" so no, she has not met the hype; she's exceeded it.
