Who remembers the original Miley Cyrus from the early 2000s? Somehow, these boom-clap beats with pop influences remind this editor of her early work. “Get Over” is just soulful enough to make the best of the few minutes we have with it. Lyrics like “As I follow on the trail, small beginnings, there isn’t a quiet place” and “All I’m feelin’ now is shame, and now I’m gone; will you remember those precious times that were all over?” reflect on ending a large problem. These soft, yet powerful lyrics remind us to keep hoping even at the worst points so that we can fix our problems too. At the same time, they make us remember our worth in any relationship. If anyone’s a fan of Cyrus’s “The Climb,” this might be your next favorite. So, stream Max Ayeza’s “Get Over” to get over those problematic breakups.
