Adele shows admiration towards Miley Cyrus’ Used To Be Young

One legendary artist who is thoroughly impressed by the song is none other than Adele. She showered Cyrus with praise, calling her ‘a legend’ and expressing her genuine admiration for the track: "I've been a massive Miley Cyrus fan for a while now... she's an absolute legend. I adore her."

The decision to unveil this track now instead of with her previous album is rooted in personal significance. August 25th holds a special place in Cyrus' heart, as she explains in a YouTube video from last week, saying, "I chose August 25th for the release of 'Used to Be Young' because it's a date that carries historical importance in my personal journey and career."

Miley Cyrus' new song has clearly gotten a lot more to it

Cyrus clearly has a lot of ‘strings attached’ to the track and its visuals. As we all remember, Cyrus and Robin Thicke's daring performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards is etched in pop-culture memory. Cyrus' choice to address the camera directly in Used to Be Young harks back to her iconic Wrecking Ball video and also pays homage to Irish artist Sinéad O'Connor, who similarly engaged with the camera in her videos.

There's another layer of significance to August 25th, a pivotal day in Cyrus' personal life. It's the day she experienced her first breakup with Liam Hemsworth back in 2010. Their relationship journey, marked by ups and downs, ultimately led to marriage and then separation, finalizing in early 2020. Coincidentally, August 25th is also Billy Ray Cyrus' birthday, adding an extra layer of emotion to the release.

With Adele's seal of approval and fans showering both artists with love, it's clear that this track is a potent reminder of Cyrus' musical prowess and her ability to touch hearts with her art.
