Noah Cyrus Reminds Us How Great “Make Me (Cry)” Is On ‘James Corden’
Noah Cyrus really came out swinging with debut single, “Make Me (Cry).” A collaboration with UK artist/producer Labrinth, the moody electro-ballad has been quite the calling card for Miley’s little sister — cracking the top 50 of the Billboard Hot 100 and racking up more than 70 million streams on Spotify. I can’t help but think the song could do even more damage after watching the pair belt out the song on The Late Late Show With James Corden. There’s really something quite magical about this pairing.
Much like their performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Noah got off to a nervous start. However, that vulnerability is part of her charm and she didn’t take long to find her groove. Labrinth, for his part, didn’t miss a beat. The song really benefits from a new arrangement, which is a little more raw and dramatic than the studio version. It will be interesting to see if the 17-year-old’s debut LP, cleverly-titled NC-17, lives up to the promise of this song. Buzz track “Almost Famous” suggests that it might. Watch up top.
