“River” is the second single and seventh track from Miley Cyrus’s eighth album “Endless Summer Vacation”, which was released on the 10th March 2023 through Columbia Records.

The dance-pop track sees Cyrus be upfront and confident in her physical relationship with a partner, using rain as a metaphor for sexual desire.

In her Disney+ documentary: “Miley Cyrus – Endless Summer Vacation (Backyard Sessions)” that released alongside the album, Cyrus broke down her intended meaning of the track:

“It was a time in my life where I was going through just a lot in my life emotionally and personally.

The official music video for the song was released on the 10th March 2023, and was directed by Jacob Bixenman. On the 16th March 2023, the video had a total of 11.5 million views on YouTube.
