Jam of the Week: "We Can't Stop" by Miley Cyrus

What happens when Miley Cyrus ditches music for three years? She makes a comeback that nobody expected. For so long, there was only a thin line between Miley's music and the songs on the Hanna Montana soundtrack. Hits like "Party in the USA" were obviously almost too fun to handle, but they always came across as phoney, while Miley tried too hard to shred her Disney image during the the Can't Be Tamed era.

Now with her latest single, "We Can't Stop", Miley has finally completed the transformation from teen pop idol to adult singer. The mid-temp track celebrates a night of going on and encourages listeners to "forget the haters." It's an interesting message set against a new sound that perfectly compliments Miley's controversial haircut.

To be honest, in this summer's competition to see who's the baddest bitch from Disney Channel, Miley is losing to Demi and Selena. "We Can't Stop" is not worth the three-year wait. BUT, it is a fun song, and I'll take anything from Miley at this point!
