Miley Cyrus to be Featured on Lil Nas X’s Debut Album Among Other Stand Out Artists
Today, Miley Cyrus took to Twitter to promote her collaboration on Lil Nas X’s new album. The artist released a visual track list on his own platform, which Cyrus retweeted. The former The Voice coach will be heard on the track “Am I Dreaming.” Catch the single when the album, Montero, is released September 17.
Fans React to Cyrus on “Am I Dreaming”
Fans everywhere are highly anticipating Cyrus’ feature on the Lil Nas X track. A multitude of commenters have replied in excitement for their single, “Am I Dreaming.”
“No but seriously, am I dreaming or is this collab actually happening,” one fan cleverly wrote.
An unofficial version of the song leaked on YouTube in late July. Overall, audiences were not disappointed with what they’ve heard so far. The vibe of the song showcases an acoustic, slow-tempo melody followed by Lil Nas X’s instantly recognizable voice. It seems to be one of the more serious tracks from the album so far. Halfway through the song, Cyrus is heard delivering her signature edgy vocal style.
“As I’m sinking, I’ll rewrite my story. Oh, never forget me and everything I’ve done, oh never forget me like I’m your favorite song. I’m faded, replaying these thoughts I thought were sinking down,” Cyrus sings in the chorus.
“Am I Dreaming” also joins a long list of other star-studded features. Montero will include songs with Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, and even Sir Elton John. The track list also arrived to fans one day after Lil Nas X revealed the cover art for the new album.
Both Advocate for the LGBTQ+ Community
The album announcement coincides with Lil Nas being honored at the Trevor Project’s Suicide Prevention Advocate of The Year. Lil Nas X has openly discussed his own struggles with sexuality and suicidal ideation, which Cyrus is also passionate about.
As a queer artist herself, Cyrus has openly advocated for gay rights and liberation. In 2014, she created the Happy Hippie foundation, which also dedicates it’s efforts to homeless LGBTQ+ youth.
More recently, Cyrus offered LGBTQ+ education to rapper, DaBaby after he made offensive comments at a music festival. She also posted a photo on Instagram that talked about how she is a proud and loyal LGBTQ+ member and has dedicated most of her life to love and acceptance. In the photo, Cyrus writes about how the internet can “fuel hate” and how cancel culture is a serious problem because it doesn’t teach right from wrong. In her caption of the post, she offered aid to this singer.
Aside from her feature on “Am I Dreaming” Cyrus has also been busy collaborating with brands. Currently, the singer has been seen in multiple ads for Gucci fragrances. She is also being sponsored by the skincare brand, Hers, and promoted the brand’s products on her Instagram yesterday.
