It becomes something of an annual tradition for Miley Cyrus to share fond memories of “Malibu”.
The 28-year-old singer took to Instagram on Tuesday May 11 to post a tribute to the song, which was released the same day in 2017. It reached number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 list and was the lead single from their album Younger Now, which was released in September.
Miley shared a video of herself working on the song in her home studio, and the caption appeared to refer to the ex-husband Liam Hemsworthalthough she didn’t mention him by name. The former couple started things off in 2015 and lived together in Malibu until their divorce in 2019.
“Today is Malibu’s 4th anniversary,” she wrote. “A song about a place and a person that I loved very much back then. This love was reciprocated beyond what I could describe here with freedom and escape.”
She remembered her Malibu home that was destroyed in the California forest fires that devastated the area in November 2018. Two years later, according to media reports, Liam sold the remains of the house.
