After being separated for three years, Miley Cyrus had a heartwarming reunion with her fiancé Liam Hemsworth last year. Her love for him was truly solidified when she released the music video for her new song “Malibu” on Thursday. The video features lyrics that express her affection towards Hemsworth and showcases her stunning engagement ring. Although the 24-year-old’s partner is not physically present in the video, he is subtly included through the dreamy visuals and the dazzling ring on her finger.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth started dating back in 2010 after working together on the movie The Last Song. In May 2012, Liam gave Miley a beautiful Neil Lane diamond ring that weighed 3.5 carats. Unfortunately, the couple broke up a year later which caused Miley to become more open about her drug use and wild behavior. However, since then, Miley has made significant changes in her life.
Recently, the two have reunited and Miley released a heartfelt video tribute to Liam which includes a sweet song with lyrics about their time apart over the last three years. The video is shot to appear as if Liam himself captured the footage with its intimate camera angles and low-fi quality. Fans can’t help but adore the singer after watching the romantic clip.
Liam recently discussed Miley’s latest single, which she shared on Instagram last Wednesday. The video showcases the couple’s love for each other and Malibu beach in California, where they rekindled their romance. Although the song signifies their engagement, it deviates from Miley’s previous albums’ sound. The track does not contain the hip hop beats found in Bangerz or the singing style of Miley Cyrus Her Dead Petz. Instead, Miley returns with a heartfelt and charming melody that depicts her renewed affection for Liam, accompanied by the country tunes that made her a household name.
The singer expresses her surprise at writing a lengthy song about her ex-fiance, whom she broke up with in 2013. She compares their relationship to the ebb and flow of waves, acknowledging that there were times when she felt overwhelmed, but he was always there to support her. The song is set in Malibu, where they spent a perfect day on the beach, watching the sunset and talking. She thanks him with all her heart for this new beginning and dreams of spending the rest of her life by his side.
In the music video, Miley Cyrus brings the lyrics of her song to life by portraying her idea of a perfect day. Viewers get to witness the former child star enjoying a drip, running with balloons, and cuddling with her dog in a low-fi setting. As she dons a series of white outfits throughout the video, fans may speculate whether this indicates a shift towards a more innocent musical style or hints at her upcoming wedding.
Throughout the video, Miley dons a variety of outfits, ranging from a cozy sweater paired with white bikini bottoms to a playful romper. The video concludes with a picturesque scene, showcasing the singer twirling on a cliff in a stunning white dress that features a short front and a long train reminiscent of a wedding gown. In a recent interview with Billboard magazine, Miley revealed that she chose to address her on-and-off relationship through music because it allowed her to do so on her own terms.
The celebrity expressed that if she were spotted in public with Liam, people would inevitably gossip about them. Therefore, she believed it was better to take control of her relationship by openly expressing her feelings. The star revealed that she wrote her latest single, Malibu, during an Uber ride on the way to the set of The Voice, where she will be coaching again. Furthermore, it was recently announced that Miley will be performing her new song at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards, marking her first televised performance of the track.
