"Malibu" is a song recorded by American singer Miley Cyrus as the lead single from Cyrus's upcoming sixth studio album, which is set for release in October 2017. It was written by Cyrus and Oren Yoel, and produced by Yoel. The song was released on May 11, 2017 by RCA Records. It premiered on Beats 1 on May 11, 2017 and was subsequently released for streaming on Apple Music. The song discusses Cyrus's relationship with current fiancé and fellow The Last Song co-star, Liam Hemsworth. Critics viewed "Malibu" as indicative of Cyrus's transition into becoming a more mellow artist, and more removed from her previously controversial image, while also drawing comparisons to Sheryl Crow. The song became Cyrus' eighteenth entry on the Billboard Hot 100, and her eighth top-ten entry, peaking at number 10 so far.
