Miley Cyrus survived with the assistance of her LGBT best friends. She said so herself. Her newest single, “River?” inspired by her closest gay friends and the love they have for her!
The Grammy Award nominee, 30, explained on Spotify’s Storyline feature that “River” depicts “ining down love.” Storyline is a Spotify app feature that enables musicians to provide fans with information on the creation of their music.
“This was a time in my life where I was going through a lot emotionally and personally. And then I had a dance party with my friends,” Cyrus recalled on Storyline. “The rule was that every girl had to bring their gay best friend or no entrance.” She stated that “all the legends” were performed, including Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Britney Spears.
“The song evolved from a trouble where it felt like it never stopped raining, to then raining down love,” added Cyrus. Previously, Cyrus released a black-and-white music video for “River” that showed several shirtless males dancing.
In a 2015 interview with Paper, the former Disney Channel star acknowledged her sexual fluidity. “I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn’t involve an animal and everyone is of age,” she said at the time. “Everything that’s legal, I’m down with. Yo, I’m down with any adult – anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me.” In a press statement issued in January, she described Endless Summer Vacation as “a love letter to LA.”

Soon after, Cyrus released “Flowers,” the album’s lead track, which has since topped 100 million streams to become Spotify’s most-streamed song of the week. Several fans have hypothesized that Cyrus accuses her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth of infidelity in the lyrics of “Flowers,” “Muddy Feet,” and other songs on the album. She and Hemsworth, 33, were married from 2018 until 2020 after meeting on the production of The Last Song (2010).
Meanwhile, “Flowers” by Miley Cyrus is once again the most popular song in the world, as it returns to the top of the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts for a seventh week (dated March 18). In the meantime, “Last Night” climbs 10-5 to become Morgan Wallen’s first top-five hit on the Global 200.
As previously reported, the song becomes the country artist’s first No. 1 on the U.S.-based Billboard Hot 100, while his album One Thing at a Time, released on March 3 and containing 36 tracks, debuts as his second No. 1 on the U.S.-based Billboard 200, with the largest streaming week ever for a country album and the largest week by equivalent album units for any album, across all genres, in 2023.
The Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. surveys, which launched in September 2020, rank songs based on streaming and sales data aggregated from more than 200 regions worldwide. The Global 200 includes global data, whereas the Global Excl. U.S. chart includes data from regions other than the United States. Chart ranks are based on a weighted formula that includes official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of audio and video music services, as well as download sales, the latter of which reflect purchases from full-service digital music retailers from around the world, with direct-to-consumer (D2C) site sales excluded from the calculations.
