Miley looks great bent over!! Pharrell told MTV: ‘I love Miley, she’s really honestly at the core a good person and it’s always cool to work with Southern people. Not that I don’t love working with West Coast, Midwest and East Coast people, but Southern people just have this thing where.. sort of a Southern value kicks in and along with that value is also that Southern appreciation.
Coming from Nashville, she just sort of appreciates things in a different way and it comes through in her performance and her aspiration. That’s my lil sis. She knows what she wants to do and at the tender age that she is now, she’s just getting started.’
Miley’s LP will include a feature from Wiz Khalifa and French Montana, but not too much hip hop: ‘It’s just gonna sound like her and her influences, but it’s not that hip-hop heavy. That’s not what she does, that’s not where she comes from. It’s a part of what she loves, which is a very big difference.
I would expect that there would be elements of the things that she’s into, but nothing rules her. She’s a fiery Sagittarius; she can’t be put into a box. None of us can anyway. All of us like a little of this and a little of that, in terms of the elements of our influences.’
UPDATE: According to Billboard: We Can’t Stop may sell upwards of 180,000 to 200,000 downloads by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, June 9. The new song is doing well at pop radio as well, having drawn 3.4 million in all-format audience, according to Nielsen BDS, since its arrival Monday.

Putting it in line for a debut when the chart is released on Monday (June 10). Hot 100 debut in the top 30, with a top 10 launch a possibility, depending largely on its sales momentum the rest of the week.
