Taylor Swift has been quietly crafting her comeback while Miley Cyrus is possibly entering her lane. Taylor’s been hiding away in Nashville, Tennessee as she works on her new album. A report surfaced stating that Taylor Swift is deciding whether to go pop or country. Taylor had a successful run on the country music scene. And it looks like Miley Cyrus wants to cash in on the genre as well. She has a whole new look and outlook on life as seen in her Billboard cover story.
In an interview with Billboard that was published on Thursday, the former Disney star remarked that she was embarrassed by the hip-hop scene. Ironically enough, Miley Cyrus collaborated with her share of hip-hop producers and rappers on her Bangerz album.
“I love that new Kendrick [Lamar] song, [‘Humble’],” Cyrus said. “I love that because it’s not [like], ‘come sit on my d***, s*** on my c***. That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. I can’t listen to that anymore. It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my c***,’ [and] I am so not that.”
Now she’s making music that will remind some of blue grass or country music. Miley Cyrus wants to distant herself from her weed-smoking and twerking past. She’s making a desperate effort to distant her new “political” music from the urban sounds of her 2013 album. Throughout the interview, Miley Cyrus made it an effort to mention that she’s more influenced by Dolly Parton and Johnny Cash rather than Mike Will Made It, the co-executive producer with Cyrus on Bangerz.
She also hopes that she can bring people together with her country music album. But, should she stay in her lane? After all, Taylor Swift is expected to drop a new album by the end of the year. As she continues to stay out of the spotlight, many of Swift’s fans have been wondering what she’s been up to. While she has not been spotted on the red carpet or in paparazzi photos, E! News confirmed that she’s focused on her new album.
“Taylor has been writing and recording her new album in Nashville for the last several months,” an source said. “She has been working on it around the clock and will be making an announcement soon. She is really excited about her new music and can’t wait to share it with her fans.”
It turns out that Taylor Swift doesn’t have much going on in her life. The insider added that she’s been “100 percent” focused on making music and “not much else.” She has been dating around like she usually does to get a hit song. This report comes after ET Online confirmed that Swift is debating whether she should go back to making country music.
It’s possible that Taylor Swift will get a bigger head and try to outdo her 1989 album. On the other hand, her ego is enough to make her think that she can release an R&B album. It would be entertaining to see Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus compete in the country music arena. Both singers are competitive when it comes to winning awards and topping the charts.
What are your thoughts, CDL readers? Do you think Miley Cyrus’ new country music album will do well? Or, do you think she should stay in her lane and out of Taylor Swift’s? Sound off below in the comments section.
