The youngest of the Cyrus clan, Noah Cyrus, has just dropped her debut single “Make Me (Cry)” — and it’s damn good.
Though we often see young artists launch their careers with bubble gum pop songs and happy-go-lucky lyrics (think: “Party in the USA”), Noah decided to go a different route with a track about toxic, undeniable love and inevitable heartbreak.
Take a listen.
While I’m not surprised to be introduced to yet another Cyrus hit-maker, I am surprised (and impressed) to see Noah go in such a different direction, musically, than the rest of her family members.
But, even though her sound is completely unique and different, the 16-year-old doesn’t deny that they’ve largely influenced her.
During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the talented teen talked about how her family has influenced and supported her throughout the process of launching her career.
“My dad has learned all of the songs that I’ve sent him,” she said. “He put it on his computer, on his jukebox, on his phone. He still has a Blackberry, by the way. But everybody’s been so supportive.”
She also mentioned the most valuable piece of advice she’s received from sister Miley.
“Miley always says, ‘Don’t ever look yourself up or read your comments, ’cause you’re gonna see stuff that you don’t want to see,'” she said. “That’s the best advice ever. If it’s making me happy, then it’s working.”
Noah also just released a stripped-down rendition of her new song, proving once and for all that this girl has talent.
