Noah Cyrus has been dropping plenty of new tracks over the past few months, with each taking her sound in a different direction. Now, she’s joined forces with rapper (and real-life boyfriend) Lil Xan for a brand-new track, “Live or Die.”
It’s a downtempo hip hop collaboration that hears the couple standing by each other through thick and thin. “On our way, to the sky / We’re gonna look down on tonight / You and I / Two heartbreak soldiers,” Cyrus sings on the track’s opening bridge. It’s a true ride-or-die anthem with a slight emo edge.
Lil Xan’s chill rap style surprisingly pairs well with the Nashville singer’s vocals. “Weather changes with my mood, it never really stays the same / And one plus one is two, and without you I think I’d go insane,” he drawls before Cyrus jumps back in for the emotive chorus. “Live or die / Got you and I / Got you tonight.”
The duo prove that they’re not just music’s unlikeliest couple at the moment, but also the scene’s most promising up-and-comers. Listen to “Live or Die” here:
