Noah Cyrus Pleads For Your Love On 'Again' With XXXTentacion: Listen

Noah Cyrus pleads listeners to "tell me that you love me" on her new track "Again," which features -- to everyone's surprise -- embattled rapper XXXTentacion.

The fiery new track, which arrived along with a music video today (Sept. 22), layers Cyrus' soulful, breathy vocal in the vein of Florence & The Machine's Florence Welch over drum kicks and industrial, metallic production. Meanwhile, XXXTentacion slides in for a slurred, slow-burning verse about being "somewhere in between in love and broken." The music video is similarly dark, with Cyrus looming about a graveyard.

It's a risky move for Cyrus to include the controversial Florida rapper, who was recently charged with allegations of domestic abuse. Earlier this month, Pitchfork released a scathing 142-page transcript of the reported victim’s testimony, ramping up the public uproar against the rapper even further.

Controversy aside, you can stream the new track and its music video below.
