In an 8-second teaser she shared on Monday (June 17), Miley is alone in a pool before extras, clad in very little, jump in with her. The singer shot the video back in late May with producer Mike Will Made It. And judging by what he told MTV News, there’s no telling what we’ll see in the clip, as Miley was down for just about anything.
“Miley already had her idea on how she wanted her video to go. A lot of artists have a lot of boundaries to how they record videos; they only want to be doing certain things. But she’s young. She’s 20. She’s fresh, so she’s just having fun on set,” he explained. “Whatever character she had to be in, and like I said she’s an actor too, so whatever she had to be in in whatever shot, she played that character to the T.”
Mike Will also revealed that the inspiration behind the song, which is the lead single off her 2013 album, was a real-life party she attended, which may explain the teaser’s house-party vibe.
“When she heard this song, what made her connect to this song is it reminded her of a specific party, a specific party where she was at,” he said. “She’s saying real stuff. It’s all real. So it’s not like her trying to force anything or anything like that. It’s like speaking from experience. It’s like a point-of-view record.”
