“Never Be Me” by Miley Cyrus

On “Never Be Me”, Miley Cyrus is apparently addressing a romantic interest. And cutting right down to the chase, what she is telling him is something like she’s a female playa.  This is not to imply that she is promiscuous per se.  Rather she is simply not the type to commit. So in keeping it real she is making her partner aware of such, despite the fact that her disposition is hurting his feelings. And the implication is that she is advising him not to get his expectations too high in terms of locking her down.

Mark Ronson is the producer, as well as one of the co-writers of this song. Originally he did not like the direction in which Miley Cyrus, who also co-wrote “Never Be Me”, took it.  But eventually he gave in to her argument that counterwise male singers are not held to a similar standard when it comes to releasing songs about their romantic unfaithfulness.

The third co-writer of the song is Ilsey Juber.
