Two of musics fiercest females have joined forces. On Thursday, Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa dropped their long-awaited new song and accompanying “Prisoner’ and accompanying video.
Embodying old school, rock ‘n’ roll energy, the party hard video features the provocative pop stars covered in blood-like liquid, seductively eating glacé cherries, smoking cigarettes and dirty dancing. Throughout the raunchy video, Cyrus can be seen rocking a white crop top, a black bralette and matching black leather mini shorts over ripped fishnet tights, along with her signature mullet haircut. Lipa sizzles in a number of looks including a black cut-out ensemble and bustier and hot pants combo.
In addition to stabbing a Valentine themed teddy bear, the ladies had a special message lit up in neon at the end of the video for their former flames: “In Loving Memory Of All My Exes, Eat S**t.”
Ahead of its release, Cyrus spoke to Spanish radio station Cadena 100 and said that the collaboration is “perfectly a blend of the both of us.” The Tennessee native, who turned 28 on Monday added, “I’m super proud of it.”
“I’m really excited for our fans to hear it because they’ve been begging for it, seriously, it’s all I ever hear from both of our fans that they want to hear the record that we did together,” she said.
Rumors that the two were working together started swirling over the summer when the “Wrecking Ball” singer posted pictures of herself hanging in the studio with the 25-year-old British songstress and teasing her fans with the caption, “Dua has heard what you haven’t….”
“Prisoner” follows Cyrus’ previously released single “Midnight Sky,” that became her highest-charting solo single since “Malibu” in 2017. Both songs are set to appear on her highly-anticipated upcoming album Plastic Hearts, out November 27. Announcing the tracklist last week, Cyrus revealed Billy Idol and Joan Jett as additional collaborators.
Lipa, for her part, has been on a hot streak since the the release of Future Nostalgia back in March which produced the hit singles “Don’t Start Now,” “Break My Heart,” “Levitating,” and “Fever.”
