The wait is finally over! A Miley Cyrus and Will.i.am collaboration has been in talks for quite a while, and as of April 15, they finally released their new song “Fall Down.” So the question remains: is it everything it was hyped out to be? Could it potentially be a summer radio anthem?
Quite possibly, actually. It’s very catchy, though I cannot shake off the strong resemblance to Will.i.am and Britney Spear’s “Scream and Shout” that came out last November; both Miley and Britney had very repetitive vocals. But considering how both songs will be on Will.i.am’s fourth album #willpower, I suppose the lack of variety is forgivable. Do you hear the resemblance?
We all know that Miley has buried her inner Hannah Montana, and this new single reiterates her desire to no longer be associated with her teen alter-ego. In the song, Miley sings: “Boy, you can be my lollipop, let me lick you up.” Quite the dirty lyrics, characteristic of Will.i.am, though her part definitely reminded me about her previous collaboration with Borgore, in the “Decisions” music video, which I found more repulsive than hilarious.
Will.i.am’s #willpower album is set to hit the stores April 23rd. Will you be picking up a copy?
Because it’s so catchy, and because Miley’s quite the popular bird, I have a feeling that this will become one of the most overplayed songs on the radio. What do you think?Tags: #willpower, Britney Spears, fall down, Miley Cyrus, radio, scream and shout, summer, Will.i.am
