Well, it's a change of pace from "We Can't Stop."
After weeks of anticipation, Miley Cyrus' new music video for "Wrecking Ball"—the second single from her forthcoming album Bangerz—has hit the web, and no surprise, the clip is bound to raise some eyebrows.
"It's officially here #wreckingballonvevoNOW," the 20-year-old pop star tweeted this morning.
There's not a twerking teddy bear in sight in the video directed by Terry Richardson, which emphasizes Miley's music instead of mind-blowing moments like we saw in the clip for Cyrus' party anthem "We Can't Stop."
But while Miley may leave her signature twerking skills at home, the scandalous star still manages to create controversy, stripping down to her birthday suit and straddling atop a large wrecking ball while taking the prop for a sexy spin.
When the erstwhile Disney star's not completely naked, she goes braless in a tiny white cropped tank, matching panties and a maroon pair of Docs, rocking bright red lips while flaunting her fabulous figure for the camera.
The video also gives viewers a look at the singer's vulnerable side as she belts out the heartbreaking lyrics to the breakup ballad while the clips cuts to a close-up shot of Cyrus shedding a tear.
Of course, since this is Miley, the serious moments are coupled with shots of the performer sticking out her tongue, licking a sledgehammer and swinging around nude on a wrecking ball.
After the release of the music video, the young beauty—who will be performing on and hosting SNL Oct. 5—took to Twitter to post a link of the clip with the hashtag, #WreckTheRecord, alerting her loyals Smilers that she will release the track list for Bangerz if her fans break the record for the most VEVO views in a 24-hour period ("We Can't Stop" broke the previous record).
The clip is sure to be the latest headline-making effort from Miley, who's been the talk of the tabloids since the release of her music video "We Can't Stop" followed by her controversial performance of the single with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards in August.
Miley has since responded to the backlash, telling MTV News, "Me and Robin, the whole time said, 'You know we're about to make history right now,'" she recalled. "What's amazing is I think now, we're three days later, and people are still talking about it."
We're willing to place bets on "Wrecking Ball" having the same effect.
