Miley Cyrus | Slide Away | Single Review

RCA Records
Rating: Thumbs Up

One can see from Miley Cyrus’ emotional performance of “Slide Away” at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards that she feels a deep personal connection to this song. “Slide Away” seemingly addresses Cyrus’ recent split with husband Liam Hemsworth, as well as moving on from her hard-partying past as she belts, “Don’t want the whiskey and pills.” It’s a breakup song, but she sounds ready to move on rather than wallow in despair, striking a different tone than her previous breakup hit “Wrecking Ball.” The symphonic outro suggests Cyrus ultimately feels optimistic, both about the next stage in her life and her upcoming musical output.
