MC Magic Explains Why "We Can't Stop" Is the Right Move For Miley Cyrus

Within 24 hours the new Miley Cyrus single, "We Can't Stop," hit over two million plays, and I predict 100 million within a week. At first listen it feels like the intro for a new song by 2 Chainz, especially considering the stamp producer Mike Will Made It leaves on it. (To say MWMI is currently a hot producer is an understatement; he's recently delivered hip hop chart-toppers for everyone from Lil Wayne to Future to Rick Ross.)

Miley's also walking the controversy tightrope again, with lyrics that many are taking as a plug for a popular party drug: "We like to party / Dancing with Molly / Doing whatever we want."
