Miley Cyrus has moved on from heartbreak — and she’s sharing her healing in a new song.
The singer, who has had hits in various genres including country, rock and pop, released her latest song “Flowers” on Friday, a sample from her upcoming 13-track album “Endless Summer Vacation.”
In the song, Cyrus talks about finding self-love after heartbreak. Sampling Bruno Mars’ 2012 hit “When I Was Your Man”, Cyrus seems to respond to Mars’ famous lyrics “I should have bought you flowers / And held your hand / I should have given you all my hours/When I had the chance/Take to all the parties ’cause all you wanted to do was dance” in a chorus of hers.
“I can buy myself flowers,” she sings. “Write my name in the sand / Talk to me for hours / Say things you don’t understand / I can catch myself dancing / And I can hold hands / Yeah, I can love myself better than you. “
Cyrus released the song on her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth’s 33rd birthday, which her fans believe was no coincidence.
In 2019, Cyrus and Hemsworth called it quits less than a year after their marriage began, 10 years after meeting on a movie set. The former couple met in 2009 while filming an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ ‘The Last Song’ and announced their engagement in 2012. Cyrus resumed wearing her engagement ring in early 2016 and the couple went got married in December 2018 in Tennessee.

In an interview with Rolling Stone in 2020, Cyrus shared that despite how she was portrayed, she wasn’t happy and was going down a dark path in 2018.
“‘She’s got a man. She lives in a house playing wife,'” Cyrus said, adding that she’s also been experimenting with drugs and alcohol. “Man, I was way more out of my way then than any other time my sanity was in question.”
