Bangerz That Azz Up

Today is music day around these neck of the woods and if you were unaware, my bestie Miley released her new album on Tuesday and it's nothing short of incredible. Even if you are the least fan of her possible, I urge you to continue reading because she knocked it out of the park on this one and you'd be crazy not to give it a shot. 

I'm taking today's #backthatazzup post and transforming it into Miley-palooza because I think you all need to give her new album a listen and also because I want to share my favorite tracks off of the album and why.

Adore You
I love lying next to you
I could do this for eternity
You and me were meant to be

This is by far one of my most favorite tracks on the entire album. The lyrics, the vocals, the emotion behind it. I relate to this one so, so much and it's on that continues to run on repeat since Tuesday.

Drive my heart into the night
You can drop the keys off in the morning
Cause I don't want to leave home, without your love

From the beat to the lyrics to that perfect raspy tone her voice carries throughout this song, I am obsessed. This is another one I can't get enough of and can't take off repeat. If you're willing to give any song on this album a chance, this is the one.

Wrecking Ball
I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in

While I realize this one has already been mainstreamed, it's really an amazing song, even despite anyone's feelings towards the music video. The lyrics in this one are something I think anyone who has suffered heartache can seriously relate with. I don't know, even being in a my current state of pure twitterpation, I can't help but to let this one take me away. 

This is the first time I get to see
Things I've never seen in my life
You make flowers grow under my bed

Ok, so admittedly, I'm a total sucker for lyrics pertaining to sex. Probably because my head is typically in the gutter, which you'd know if you've ever talked to me for point two seconds or more. In addition to the naughty lyrics in this one, the beat gets me all sorts of happy.

Also, if you haven't watched this acapella version of We Can't Stop, take a second to because it's just awesome.

And those are my top four pics from the Bangerz album, even though I could honestly listen to the entire thing on repeat, from start to finish, all day long. Which, really, is what I've been doing since Tuesday. This album totally knocked it out of the park and I think she definitely gave herself a lot of credibility with it.

If I had to pick a least favorite, and it's not even a total hate because I don't skip it by any means, it'd be 4x4.

Anyways, the entire album is amazing and if you haven't listened you've got to put it on your to-do list. Now, go link up and if you use Miley, I'll be even more excited about you.

    Funny thing - I used 4x4 in my post. Mostly because I've already used Wrecking Ball and FU at some point. Plus, it reminds me of my Jeep Muddin' days.

  2. October 11, 2013 at 8:21 AM

    I pretty much love the entire album including 4x4. I blame the beat mostly for loving that song so much though and I definitely agree she killed this album. I got it last week before it released and needless to say it is all I've listened to since!

  3. October 11, 2013 at 8:22 AM

    Adore You...OMG YES MILEY YES!! It is so good I have listened to that song multiple times now. I really am such a fan of her new album! Hataz gonna hate!!

    happy friday gorgeous girly!
    PS my head is ALWAYS in the gutter as well haha

    I think you're gonna get alot of people linking up today with songs from Miley's new album ... Including myself lol! "Do My Thang" is one of my faves on the album. And I agree on "Adore You", it's just so raw.

  5. October 11, 2013 at 8:36 AM

    I must say I love that version of the song...with no twerking..and some Jimmy thrown in there!

  6. October 11, 2013 at 8:45 AM

    I am OBSESSED with the Miley & Juicy J song...

  7. October 11, 2013 at 9:31 AM

    That version of We Can't Stop is better than the original!

  8. October 11, 2013 at 9:56 AM

    FU and Love Money Party are two of my favorites, even though I love the entire thing. I can't stop listening to it! It's just too good, with a huge variety of sounds, beats and emotions. Love it.

  9. October 11, 2013 at 10:27 AM

    I too am loving Miley at the moment! This is the best album she has had in my opinion!

  10. October 11, 2013 at 10:38 AM

    I guess it's time for me to finally break down and buy the album, huh? I'm a little late, but I can't deny it any longer!!!!

  11. October 11, 2013 at 10:41 AM

    I loved the a cappella her and Jimmy did! Great album, I loved it.

  12. October 11, 2013 at 10:44 AM

    I'm beyond obsessed with Wrecking Ball.. and thanks to this, I have new obsessions!

  13. October 11, 2013 at 10:48 AM

    but for realz, she's just being miley and it's working. she has talent whether she's wearing clothes or not.

  14. October 11, 2013 at 11:20 AM

    Now I was not a fan of her VMA performance but I've watched the Wrecking Ball video and I don't understand the fuss! Yea she's naked and licking a sledge hammer but I've seen way worse music videos. Even Christina's "Dirrty" was more raunchy than "Wrecking Ball". I'm off to find my iPod so I can download this masterpiece....

  15. October 11, 2013 at 11:23 AM

    We are on totally different pages for the Miley CD. I love Love, Money, Party (my #backthatazzup song today!) and 4x4 is my second favorite!! Ahh well, at least we can agree that we both like Miley.

  16. October 11, 2013 at 11:46 AM

    Thanks so much for sharing this, Whitney! I have to say my opinion of her sunk considerably since the VMAs, but she'll always have an amazing voice. Loving the album.

  17. October 11, 2013 at 12:18 PM

    From what I've heard so far, I do like her music...just not her antics/attitude/tongue... Suppose I'll go ahead and get the album. It'll probably be really good gym-time music.

  18. October 11, 2013 at 1:07 PM

    I like new Miley's songs, Wrecking Ball and We Can't Stop. I hadn't seen the Jimmy Fallon video. Love the a capella!

  19. October 11, 2013 at 1:47 PM

    There are so many Miley haters out there, which I guess I sort of get, but honestly the girl is freaking talented! I'm loving her new album, too. Have you seen this amazing mashup yet?

    After my boss leaves today I"ll be listening to ALL the songs.

  21. October 11, 2013 at 2:50 PM

    I am totally IN LOVE with the entire CD too. My favorite so far is FU. :)

  22. October 11, 2013 at 4:17 PM

    album of the decade. boom. every song is flawless. you can tell she put all her heart into this and worked her ass off. this is not a half-assed album like a lot of artists put out.
    i love 4x4 because it brings me back to the hannah montana movie with the hoedown throwdown!
    i find myself constantly going to On My Own and Rooting For My Baby and Maybe You're Right.

  23. October 11, 2013 at 4:29 PM

    I love Jimmy Fallon. He just always smiles awkwardly. Happy FRIDAY!

  24. October 11, 2013 at 7:57 PM

    Yes, LOVE IT. Drive is a favorite, Adore you (of course), but I think FU is currently my favorite !!

  25. October 12, 2013 at 10:39 AM
