Musical FaceOff: Miley Cyrus vs. Selena Gomez

It is indeed a battle of tracks from these former-Disney Stars. Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez released their new singles on the same day. Miley Cyrus’ slow-tempo track “We Can’t Stop” faces Selena Gomez’ with “Slow Down”, follow-up of her smash hit “Come & Get It”.

Released on the same day, June 4th, “We Can’t Stop” is Miley Cyrus’ comeback track for her yet-untitled album while Selena Gomez’ “Slow Down”, produced by The Cataracts, is from her upcoming album, Stars Dance.

Honestly, Miley’s track was a letdown for me. I was expecting a catchy and addictive hook, something that this song does not have. However, “We Can’t Stop” is a total grower song. At first I didn’t like it, but I found myself humming to the track’s melody out of nowhere.

The case is different with Selena’s “Slow Down”. I absolutely LOVED it, the first time I heard. It’s a type of track that may have Britney a run of her money. But the catch of it, I tend to forget the song’s melody and even the lyrics!

In a Hashtag Battle on Twitter, the numbers are in favor for Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop”, beating Gomez’ “Slow Down” for the month of June up to this writing.



But in the end, it all comes down to the listeners. Which former Disney Superstar got a better track?

  1. True, “We Can't Stop” is no “Party in the USA”, but it's definitely different than anything that's playing on the radio these days.

    “Slow Down”, while a catchy and fun dance track, it's painfully basic. It's sounds exactly like her other songs; there's nothing even remotely interesting or different than anything else she's come out with.

    I have to give props to Miley for evolving in her musical sound. She's a far more interesting musical artist.
