ALMA recently opened up to People about her rise to fame and collaborating with Miley Cyrus.
ALMA has cowritten multiple hits with Cyrus, including the riotous “Mother’s Daughter,” divorce kiss-off “Slide Away” and the latest Charlie’s Angels theme, “Don’t Call Me Angel” (with Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey).
“We met at a party and she was like, ‘Hey, your album is super cool,’ and I was just like, ‘Yep. You’re Miley Cyrus and you’re super cool too.’ I’ve always been a Miley fan and I love powerful, female artist who does what the f— they want to do — and she’s like queen of that,” ALMA says.
The artists hit it off immediately after they met.
“Literally, the next day we were in the studio and we were making music and actually, the first song we did together was ‘Slide Away.’ I feel like we were in the same place in life, like we had same things in our head and it was a connection we both really needed,” ALMA says. “It was just so easy to write all of the songs. It was like we’re not trying much — they just came. We both have the same energy: It’s just very fast and very real and very honest.”
