Noah Cyrus Is Predictably Stunning On Matoma’s “Slow”
Noah Cyrus falls deeply in lust over enticing synths on her collaboration with Matoma, “Slow.” The Norwegian DJ teamed up with the budding hitmaker for the lead single to his forthcoming album, One In A Million. On the LP, he hopes to evolve from the trop-pop that defined his debut, and his new single does just that. Released today (November 17), the pair clearly have a hit on their hands.
“It’s three o’clock in the morning. No one can make me go home, ’cause no one’s waiting there for me. And I just can’t be alone,” she mourns on the opening line. Looking for a momentary escape, she finds one in a green-eyed lover. Her voice resonates with optimism as she pleads for a quick romance. “I don’t want to go slow. Every time you’re pulling backwards, I’m just gonna fall in faster,” she warns. Matoma’s production builds to a crescendo on the chorus, and it bubbles over with massive synths and atmospheric bass.
Matoma announced the collaboration in an interview with Billboard earlier this week, and he had nothing but good things to say about working with Noah. “She has so much soul and personality. I got in touch to work on a song with her, and we worked back and forth while I was in Norway and she was on the road. This idea for ‘Slow’ came together, and it felt super special,” he explained. The “Make Me (Cry)” siren shared her own excitement about the release. “The song is lyrically so beautiful and the production brings it all to life,” she told the magazine.
With every release Noah continues to establish her excellence and versatility as a pop star. “Slow” promises big things for both her and Matoma. Listen to their new release below!
