Miley Cyrus’ last two singles, “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball,” were two of the biggest songs of 2013 — and the 21-year-old is betting on a tender love ballad to continue her winning streak. “Adore You,” the opening track on Cyrus’ “Bangerz” album, has been selected as the third official single from the album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in October.
According to a press release, “Adore You” — which was produced by Oren Yoel — will impact Top 40 radio on Jan. 6, 2014. “We Can’t Stop” peaked at No. 2 on the Hot 100 chart, while “Wrecking Ball” gave Cyrus her first No. 1 single on the tally.
In fact, “Wrecking Ball” returned to the top of the Hot 100 this week, thanks in part to a parody video by YouTube user Stephen Kardynal that utilized the online char service Chatroulette and became a viral sensation. The nine-week gap between “Wrecking Ball” topping the Hot 100 (which included the entirety of Lorde’s “Royals” reign on the chart) marks the longest in the Hot 100’s history for a song in a single chart run.
Cyrus will be able to showcase “Adore You” live when her Bangerz tour kicks off on Feb. 14, 2014 in Vancouver. The pop star is currently performing as part of the inaugural Jingle Ball tour, which will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Friday night (Dec. 6).
