Maybe You're Right

  • This song finds Miley relating a deteriorating relationship to the chapters of a book. "You might think I'm crazy… Maybe you're right," she belts, "This chapter's done." Many of Miley's fans have interpreted the song as a glimpse into what went wrong in the singer's romance with the Australian actor Liam Hemsworth.
  • The song is one of seven tracks on Bangerz that were produced by Mike Will Made It, who also served as executive producer on the album. The Atlanta producer made his name with rappers like 2 Chainz and Juicy J, but this record sees him making the transition into the pop world. "I've known about him because I listened to a lot of Hip-Hop," Cyrus said in her documentary Miley: The Movement. "I just fell in love with his beats and how young he was. No pop chicks are real messing with him like that."
