Brace Yourselves Folks, Miley’s Back

It’s been about two years since Miley stripped down to her bra and rode a wrecking ball into our hearts. Since the release of the “Wrecking Ball” music video and her third studio album Bangerz, Miley has taken a bit of a T.O. from the studio, focusing on her infamous Bangerz World Tour while also promoting her Happy Hippie Foundation, a charity that aims to help homeless youth.
While Miley did Miley, the rest of music’s pop stars swooped in for some attention. Katy Perry requested, and was denied, the trademark to a dancing shark during her Super Bowl performance. Beyoncé dropped a surprise album and garnered almost nothing for it. Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea decided they were really pretty until Azealia Banks told everyone that Iggy sucks. And of course, Taylor Swift casually made millions of dollars from her new album, 1989.
But now Miley has returned to the music scene. Her new track, “Nightmare,” was leaked onto the Internet recently, and it’s pretty good. As the title suggests, “Nightmare” is relatively sad, as Miley sings “I woke up with a broken heart/With no one lying next to me/It’s not how it’s supposed to be/So why’d he have to go?”
Miley fans have been voicing online that her new song is the new breakup song, sympathetic and comforting to the recently dumped listener. I don’t know about that. To me it sounds like a giant F.U. to Liam Hemsworth (not to be confused with her subtle Bangerz track “FU”).
Even if lyrical retribution isn’t your thing (see Taylor Swift), “Nightmare” is worth a listen. It’s upbeat, it’s catchy, and I don’t imagine her singing this with a foam finger. While it’s unknown whether or not “Nightmare” is an unreleased Bangerz track or indicative of a new album, all I can say for sure is that Miley has returned to the music scene, and I’m glad to have her back.
