Miley Cyrus returns with a sweet ode to Liam Hemsworth

The woman who gave us the twerk-heard-'round-the-world has changed her sound and her image with "Malibu", her brand-new single and video.

It seized the throne from Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee's "Despacito (featuring Justin Bieber)", which had ruled the chart since this past weekend.

Mailbu is the first single from Miley's upcoming album, which is due later this year. She subsequently signed a recording contract with Hollywood Records, and her debut studio album Meet Miley Cyrus (2007) was certified triple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) having shipped over three million units.

These days, Cyrus is cuddling up to boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, whom she recently revealed to Billboard is the inspiration behind "Malibu".

In an accompanying video, Cyrus rolls in the sun-kissed sand and sits meditatively in a field of flowers, at times petting a dog and gleefully flying an imposing bundle of balloons.

Cyrus and Hemsworth rekindled their romance in January 2016 after calling off their engagement in September 2013.

Cyrus reminisces in the song about her introduction to Malibu, one of the most celebrated beaches in the Los Angeles area, after overcoming fears of swimming. She'll be performing the track on the 2017 Billboard Music Awards May 21, and on NBC's Today show May 26. "So why not put the power back in my relationship and say, "This is how I feel"?" she said.
