Miley Cyrus' new album finally dropped today, with fans absolutely raving about it.
'Endless Summer Vacation' is definitely giving off the sunny vibes we need right now as we come out of winter.
But the record is jam packed with tons of powerful tunes, which have greater depth than you might assume at first glance.
One of the most striking songs on the album is 'Wonder Woman', and it's clear from the lyrics that it meant a lot for Cyrus.
If you've not yet listened to it, here's a segment: “She’s a million moments, lived a thousand lives / Never know she’s hopeless, only when she cries.”
The tune builds to an immense crescendo, with Cyrus belting out: “She can’t stop her eyes from welling up, up."
Now, it won't come as a surprise to you that artists tend to draw inspiration from their own lives.
And it's no different for the former Disney star, who was thinking about her late grandmother, who died three years ago, when she penned the song.
Speaking about the process, Cyrus said: “I wrote this song after my mom had lost her mom.
“Me and my Mami were really close and she ran my fan club. It’s about generational strength and the wisdom that my grandma gave to my mom.
"It’s embedded in my DNA so we almost all feel like one woman in a way. One Wonder Woman."
Mami sadly passed away just a few days before her granddaughter released her last album Plastic Hearts.
Following her passing, the popstar said she was absolutely devastated by the loss.
"Even though you are gone.... NOTHING has or ever will change," she said. You will FOREVER be my inspiration and fashion icon."
She went on: "Even more than that the ultimate model of being a true LIGHT in a dark world. You are sunshine. Everyday I wake and see that fiery ball in the sky I will see your face.
"Then say a prayer thanking heaven above for giving me the best grandmother a girl could ever be gifted."
Concluding her post to Instagram, Cyrus added: "I will miss you for the rest of my life.... I will keep your spirit here by continuing to do good for others and treating them the way we all desire to be treated. With an infinite amount of the same gentle kindness you displayed daily."
"We will ache everyday you are not with us.... "
