Just a year after embracing her country roots for Younger Now, Miley Cyrus is back to making mischief. The musician features on Mark Ronson's new track "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart," and the video shows her on a wild car chase as she accompanies the DJ's instrumentals with a tale of a failing romance.
The video follows Cyrus as she speeds down highways and through buildings, heading towards an unknown destination and staying ahead of a police pursuit. News coverage intersperses the driving shots, as do a colorful club scene (inside which, naturally, the singer has stopped her car) and unsettling moments of children shooting at targets. Ronson makes a cameo towards the end, jumping into the car as the police inch closer.
Earlier this year, Ronson was the cover star of L'Officiel Hommes USA's fourth issue, where he teased his next album would show a softer side, showing he is so much more than the "ultimate good time guy" who collaborated with Bruno Mars for the smash hit "Uptown Funk." Now, "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" gives the world a first listen to this new sound, which he and Cyrus had been teasing for months over social media.
The new video emphasizes both heartbreak and power, truly the start of the collaborative breakup album Ronson had promised. The DJ's emotional investment is bringing his music to the next level, and this release may be 2019's perfect backdrop for crying in the club.
