9. Miley Cyrus - Party In The USA
Miley Cyrus first recorded Party In the USA for her debut EP titled The Time of Our Lives in 2009, when she was just 17 years old. The track, which was originally written by Jessie J and intended for her to perform, was later released as a single and became a massive hit.
Now, I think we would all agree that the things we do at 17 do not define us as a person for the rest of our lives. But when your entire life and career are under the spotlight, some of those early impressions are difficult to shake off.
Cyrus began to dislike the song's bubblegum pop sound, saying that's not what she wants her voice to sound like.
"I can never say that I don’t love Party in the USA", she explained in an interview with V Magazine in 2013, "and that I’m not appreciative of it. But that’s not who I am, that’s not where I want to sing, that’s not what I want to sing."
Looking at how her career has developed from there, it's admirable how much she was able to evolve as an artist and escape the labels that were attached to her in her teenage years.
