Noah Cyrus' reflective "July," released back in the month it was named after, showcased the 19-year-old's mature, folksy voice her fans love her for. In a new remix released on Friday (Nov. 8), she tapped the king of stirring vocals himself, Leon Bridges.
The song's already-chilling harmonies are amplified by Bridges' honeyed melodies, as the lyrics contemplate the vicious cycle of a toxic relationship. "You know I, I'm afraid of change/ Guess that's why we stay the same," Cyrus croons in the poignantly self-aware pre-chorus, while Bridges twists his hook slightly to reflect a male perspective.
"So tell me to leave, I'll pack my bags, get on the road/ Find someone who gives you all of the things I couldn't, I know/ 'Cause I keep fighting all the ways I let you down so I can stay," he sings.
