Ready for some music from a member of the Cyrus family? And no: I’m not talking about Miley Cyrus or her older half-sister Brandi Cyrus, who was once part of a fantastic but short-lived pop duo called Frank + Derol. Rest in peace.
I’m talking about the younger member of the Cyrus family, little Miss Noah Cyrus. YUPP. The 16-year-old former actress recently inked a recording deal with RECORDS LLC, and just released her debut single “Make Me (Cry)” – Not to be confused with “Make Me…” by Queen of Pop Britney Spears.
Produced by and featuring Labrinth, “Make Me (Cry)” is slow-drifting drowsy ballad, complimented by soaring strings, semi-gloomy synths and erratic drum patterns, that is as mesmerizing and infectious as some of Miley‘s more somber moments on Bangerz, or even Lana Del Rey‘s more urban-influenced productions. “I never needed you like I do right now/ I never hated you like I do right now/ Cause all you ever do is make me [teardrop sound],” she sings on the hook. It’s big and sad and anthemic, and undoubtedly impressive.
I sure as hell didn’t see this coming, but I’m not mad at it. What do you guys think?
