Raspy pop singer Miley Cyrus, already famous as a TV actress, launched her musical career with the trivial pop of Meet Miley Cyrus (2007), with See You Again, that began her association with the production duo Rock Mafia (Tim James and Antonina Armat), Breakout (2008), with 7 Things, and Can't Be Tamed (2010). Hip-hop producer Mike "Will Made It" Williams reinvented her sound on Bangerz (2013), steering her towards hip-hop and neosoul. The hits were We Can't Stop and especially Wrecking Ball, crafted by producers Lukasz "Dr Luke" Gottwald and Henry "Cirkut" Walter in collaboration with an army of songwriters. The mammoth 23-song double-disc Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz (2015) contains several collaborations with the Flaming Lips, notably Karen Don't be Sad, but overall it is incredibly trivial and boring. Then came Younger Now (2017), coproduced with multi-instrumentalist Oren Yoel, with Malibu, the EP She is Coming (2019), with Mother's Daughter, and Plastic Hearts (2020), mostly a nostalgic tribute to 1980s-style synth-pop (Midnight Sky could be a Pet Shop Boys song).

Endless Summer Vacation (2023) contains Flowers, a cross of disco-music of the 1970s with Lady Gaga and with Ace Of Base's Beautiful Life (composed by seasoned songwriters like Michael Pollack and produced by Kid Harpoon and Tyler Johnson). However, the album occasionally hints at a possible career in country music (Thousand Miles).
