Miley Cyrus has established herself as one of the hardest twerking players in the pop game throughout the past seven years, and if you’re not yet hip to her summertime ode to all things carefree and turnt-up, “We Can’t Stop,” then it’s time to open your ears. First of all, the song’s music video is insane. It’s also one of the five contenders in our Song Of The Summer poll (hurry up and vote — we’re announcing a winner tomorrow, pop pickers!). And did we mention that the video is absolutely bonkers? We did? Okay. Finally, “We Can’t Stop” just gyrated into the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 this week (it’s at #5), thus marking Miley’s seventh trip into the upper tier of the main singles chart.
This feat calls for a good ol’ party in the U.S.A. Our way of celebrating: looking back at Miley’s six previous Top 10 jams. From “See You Again” to “Can’t Be Tamed,” this is your refresher on saucy Cyrus’ biggest hits. So grab your Hannah Montana wig — oh, we see you’ve, um, been wearing it all along — and climb below for stroll down memory lane.
“See You Again”
Chart position: #10
The gist: A 15-year-old Miley, still tamed and riding high with her Hannah Montana success at this point, took off the wig and stepped out under her own name with this slightly haunting, dance-poppy debut. The shy singer s-s-s-stuttered her way through a tale of (unrequited?) love from afar. Who can’t relate to that? Thank god Leslie had her back.
Oddly, there was never an official music video for “See You Again.”
