Has there ever been a more natural remix than the brand-new mash-up of Miley Cyrus’ “Midnight Sky” with Stevie Nicks’ 1982 hit “Edge of Seventeen”? The new song — dubbed “Edge of Midnight” — was released on Friday, and it hits all the right notes.
Cyrus’ and Nicks’ voices are a gravelly match made in heaven, as the two songs blend together seamlessly without any significant changes to the originals. And Cyrus adds another great classic cover to her arsenal, following her take on godmother Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” her team-up with Madonna on “Don’t Tell Me” and many more.
So this pairing really worked — but what other cross-generational divas would we like to see team up? On the latest Billboard Pop Shop Podcast (listen below), Katie & Keith riff on some possibilities, including Beyoncé and Tina Turner, Demi Lovato and Pat Benatar, and a redo of the almost-collaboration between Lady Gaga and Cher (please try again, ladies!).
Listen to the full show above to hear more of our diva-duo ideas.
Also on the show, we’ve got chart news about why Ariana Grande’s debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with “Positions” is such an amazing feat, how Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope” completes a record-breaking climb to the top five on the Billboard Hot 100, and how Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez’s “Dakiti” debuts straight into the top 10 on the Hot 100.
