1883 On Rotation: Miley Cyrus, VOILÀ, Spencer Sutherland, GAYLE
On rotation this week is the highly anticipated album from Miley Cyrus, Endless Summer Vacation, more specifically the album’s latest single “River.” The track comes after “Flowers,” which is Miley’s longest running number 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100. “River” showcases Miley’s songwriting chops and further proves that, with 8 studio albums under her belt, she can still write hit records. LA-based duo VOILÀ released their new pop-rock single “Girls Don’t Come With Instructions” today, a cheeky ode to navigating a new relationship. The single serves as the introduction for a new era of music from the duo, which we’re very much looking forward to hearing more of. Ahead of Taylor Swift’s The Era’s Tour starting next week, opening act GAYLE releases her latest, “Everybody Hates Me.” The punk-influenced track is her first single of 2023, and serves as a reminder to love yourself no matter the circumstances. For fans of Mayday Parade, Derek Sanders unveiled the latest single from his solo project, “Howell Canyon,” off his forthcoming EP The Heavy Box, out April 14. Sanders explains that the track is “about dealing with the sadness that comes from an important chapter in my life ending. The song takes a look back but also forward towards a more hopeful future.”
Maluma is back with his latest single “La Reina,” a song all about celebrating and empowering Columbian women. The track’s accompanying music video spotlights women from all walks of life, including a survivor of an acid-throwing attack. Tiktok sensation and bonafide superstar Spencer Sutherland released his highly anticipated debut album In His Mania today, featuring his latest single “Jealousy.” No stranger to a chill inducing vocal riff, Spencer’s voice shines throughout the entire record. Kelsea Ballerini’s EP Rolling Up the Welcome Mat has been on rotation since its release, a standout track being “Blindsided.” Soaked in undeniable honesty, the track touched listeners all over the world as Kelsea took the stage last week, performing it for her SNL debut. NYC rocker Micky James is back with his second single of the year, “James Brown,” a song all about self love and self expression. The infectious, electric single is just a taste of what’s to come on Micky’s upcoming EP, expected to release late summer.
Travis Barker leant his talents on Pardyalone’s latest single, “Alone.” The heartfelt track “is about realizing that ‘you’ were the only person to save me from myself…and now you’re gone,” says the rising alternative hip hop act.

The single “I know it won’t work” follows Gracie through the ups and downs of navigating a breakup. 21-year-old American Idol alum Ava Maybee is back with her latest, “PUKE,” featuring her rockstar dad Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums.
