Anyone with eyes and ears can tell Miley Cyrus isn’t sticking to her family-friendly country roots lately. When she’s not busy chopping off her hair for an edgy new ‘do or making out with her fiance, the horse, to a dubstep beat, she’s been in the studio with the likes of Tyler, The Creator and Pharrell. Miley opened to CNN, of all places, to discuss the sound of her fourth studio album.“People don’t think [hip-hop and country] make a good hybrid, but actually, so many hip-hop artists are really inspired by country musicians — especially a lot of the artists I’ve been working with in Atlanta,” Miley said to CNN while promoting her no film So Undercover. She calls hip-hop and country “my two favorite styles of music.”
Quite accurately, it seems, she describes her fourth studio album as “a really different sound. Not only just for me, but I think it’s something that radio needs right now.”
