Miley Cyrus Recruits Lana Del Rey Hitmaker for "Adore You" Remix

After putting an EDM spin on LDR's "Summertime Sadness" and sending it to the Top 10, Cedric Gervais is teaming up with Miley
 / February 11, 2014

Love her or hate her, Miley Cyrus' Bangerz era has been a hit on the charts so far. Comeback single "We Can't Stop" hit No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 while follow-up "Wrecking Ball" was a three-week chart topper. The third single, however, stalled at No. 22: While certainly not a flop, "Adore You" pales in comparison... so far.

So "this generation's Madonna" called up French DJ/producer Cedric Gervais for help. Gervais is the same dude who reworked Lana Del Rey's mid-tempo "Summertime Sadness" joint into a euphoric dance jam, landing both artists their first Top 10 hit and helping the pouty-lipped singer reclaim artistic integrity.

This new "Adore You" version takes a similar route as "Summertime Sadness," pasting Cyrus' crooning over a punchy EDM production in place of the moody, pop ballad beat.

With her Bangerz tour kicking off on Valentine's Day, having another ubiquitous radio hit may inspire a few more ticket sales and keep us talking about Miley even moreā€”not that we didn't already spend all of 2013 doing that.
