33. MILEY CYRUS – Billboard’s “100 Greatest Music Video Artists of All Time”
Why She’s a Video Icon: Miley has managed to make headlines with nearly every music video she drops — especially when one ushers in a new look — simultaneously inspiring spoofs and Halloween outfits for years to come.
The MTV Classic: The shocking, Terry Richardson-directed “Wrecking Ball” stands as the quite possibly only hammer-licking music video around — and proved that, if you’re Miley, you can still do the most while wearing the least.
Worth YouTubing: The video for the foreshadowing track “Can’t Be Tamed,” in which the pop star literally breaks free from her cage, serves as air-tight proof that (as Miley claims a decade later on her latest single) she was born to run. — L.H.
“The slinky #MidnightSky sees Miley Cyrus channel her inner Prince, and it results in a synth-pop smasher.”
“See my lips on her mouth, everybody’s talking now,” muses 2013’s most wanted on this disco-tinged, post-divorce banger. The Milky Milky Milk hitmaker sounds suitably refreshed after the double-meh of 2017’s country singer rebirth and last year’s, erm, Cattitude. Midnight Sky is everything all that wasn’t: impassioned, energised and delivered by someone brave enough to sport a platinum-blonde mullet.
Miley Cyrus has marked seven years since the release of her hit single ‘Wrecking Ball’.
The pop megastar took to Instagram to share a clip of the viral music video for the track, which saw her swinging across the room on a giant wrecking ball in the nude, and admitted it “feels like a lifetime ago” that she put it out.
She wrote: “7 years of Wrecking Ball. My concept of time is completely askew. Feels like a lifetime ago… but somehow only yesterday. Thank you for all the support you gave me then and of course the love you’re continuing to show my art today. Forever grateful & inspired. (sic)”
The single was taken from Miley’s fourth LP, 2013’s ‘Bangerz’, and she later admitted she regretted the song and the promo.
The ‘Nothing Breaks Like a Heart’ hitmaker confessed that she would hate for it to be played at her funeral.
Speaking in 2017, she quipped: “Swinging around naked on a wrecking ball lives forever. I am never living that down.
“I will always be the naked girl on a wrecking ball, no matter how much I frolic with Emu [her dog] I am always the naked girl on the wrecking ball.
“I should have thought of how long that was going to follow me around.
“It’s my worst nightmare, that song being played at my funeral — that is my worst nightmare.”
Meanwhile, Miley recently dropped the lead single, ‘Midnight Sky’, from her upcoming seventh studio album.
The popular track is the biggest radio song of her career.
She reacted: “Back in the studio and just heard that Midnight Sky is having the biggest radio add week of my CAREER and it’s #1 most added at Pop and Hot AC.
“Every radio programmer who added [my song] is rad as f*** and everyone who didn’t, well….. (sic)”
It looks like Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion may be on their way to their first No. 1 in the U.K. with “WAP,” though so far the cut hasn’t been able to put a stop to one track’s month-long run atop the chart. Will it be able to do so next time around? It’s impossible to say…but it will surely be a tight race.
Here’s a look at five of the most important moves on this week’s U.K. singles chart.
No. 2 – Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion – “WAP”
No. 15 – Miley Cyrus – “Midnight Sky”
Miley Cyrus has officially kicked off the next era of her career with new single “Midnight Sky,” which begins its time on the U.K. songs ranking at No. 15. The tune is now her eighteenth top 40 in the country and her first of 2020. The cut precedes her forthcoming album She Is Miley Cyrus, which doesn’t yet have a release date.
No. 19 – Jason Derulo – “Take You Dancing”
No. 39 – Dua Lipa – “Levitating”
No. 87 – Katy Perry – “Smile”

Midnight Sky by Miley Cyrus debuts at #15 on the Official UK Singles Chart!
This is her 13th Top 20 entry in the UK Charts and her 26th entry overall.
Midnight Sky has debuted at #17 on the Official Irish Singles Chart! This is Miley’s 19th entry on the Irish Chart.
Almost every week on the Hot 100, there is at least one new track that breaks into the top 10, becoming a major win for the artist (or artists) behind the tune. Sometimes, more than one cut lifts into the region or even debut there (as is the case this frame). The turnover inside the tier is rapid, and the competition is fierce.
Right now, there are a number of successful songs that are vying for space inside the Hot 100’s top 10, and the five cuts listed below may all eventually find their way into the arena…or perhaps only some will, while others will have to settle for coming very close, but not quite making it.
Here are six singles that stand a good chance of reaching the Hot 100’s top 10 very soon.
Drake – “Laugh Now Cry Later (ft. Lil Durk)”
Gabby Barrett – “I Hope”
Rod Wave – “Rags2Riches (ft. ATR Son Son)”
Dua Lipa – “Break My Heart”
BTS – “Dynamite”
Miley Cyrus – “Midnight Sky”
After a very short break in between projects, Miley Cyrus is ready to kick off the latest era of her career with “Midnight Sky,” a catchy pop-rock tune that could give her the hit she’s seemingly been looking for. The track appears to preview her next full-length, and it will likely enjoy a lofty start on next week’s Hot 100, and a top 10 beginning isn’t out of the question.
Even if “Midnight Sky” does fail to break into the top 10 right away, it could do so after gaining ground at radio, which seems eager to take a chance on whatever Cyrus has to deliver.
Mark Ronson has teased the killer vocals on his Miley Cyrus collaboration ‘High’.
The pop star previously teased that there will be two or three songs with the studio wizard – who she hooked up with on mega-hit ‘Nothing Breaks Like a Heart’ – on her hotly-anticipated seventh record, which will have “Joan Jett vibes”.
She said: “Me and Mark, we have about two/ three songs on my next project together … kind of like Joan Jett vibes to it, just bringing back rock n roll.
“I currently have my dad’s haircut, I’m excited to bring that also.”
And now, the ‘Uptown Funk’ hitmaker has teased that Miley’s vocal is “11/10” on the track.
Sharing a tweet by a Miley stan account, which reads: “@MileyCyrus confirmed a new song produced by Mark Ronson that will be on the album called “High”! #M7 #MidnightSky”, he added: “this song will make you call every ex you ever had. Miley’s vocal is 11/10 (sic)”
Miley – who has just split from boyfriend Cody Simpson – recently dropped the lead single, ‘Midnight Sky’, which is about her reclaiming the narrative about her life and split from ex-husband Liam Hemsworth, whom she separated from in August 2019 after seven months of marriage and had their union legally ended in January 2020.
The 27-year-old star previously revealed her new album is “genre-less”, whilst she teased a duet with punk rock legend Billy Idol called ‘Night Crawling’.
The lyrics for the latter track reportedly include: “Gotta listen when the devil’s calling.”
Whilst on another verse, she confesses: “Sometimes I’m good for nothing, sometimes the best you ever had. Sometimes I need your loving, sometimes I stab you in the back.”
On her diverse-sounding album, she previously teased: “There’s psychedelic elements, there’s pop elements, there’s more hip-hop-leaning records.
“You know, in the same way I like to kind of just be genderless, I like feeling genre-less.”
Miley’s last LP was 2017’s ‘Younger Now’.
