So la da di da di/We like to party/Dancing with Molly/Doing whatever we want/This is our house/This is our rules/And we can’t stop/And we won’t stop/Can’t you see it’s we who own the night?/Can’t you see it’s we who ’bout that life?
Miley’s “Molly” party may have garnered almost a million YouTube “haterz,” but Mike Will Made-It‘s synth on the chorus turns this boilerplate four-chorder into a memorable jam. Unfortunately, Cyrus’ hair, rebellion and snorted “lines” expose Rihanna mimicry, only even more vocally obnoxious.
