Hot girl summer? More like cowgirl summer in Noah Cyrus’ video for new song “July.”
The 19-year-old songstress strips her vocals down for a country-folk acoustic which seems to come naturally for the Cyrus clan. The track is haunting and raw, showing off Cyrus’ sweet, but smoky voice. It tells the story of an endless cycle of a toxic relationship, seen in lyrics like “cause you remind me every day I’m not enough but I still stay,” and “I’ve done a lot of things wrong / Loving you being one but I can’t move on.” Whoever hurt Noah Cyrus is officially cancelled.
The video is simple, but a beauty, with grainy footage and muted colours. The youngest Cyrus roams around a road surrounded by an open field, looking all introspective and dreamy, with her edginess still peaking out through her tattoos and burnt hat. She is basically the epitome of a cool, indie cowgirl and it’s safe to say we all want to be her.
Following the release of the single, Cyrus got some sweet messages of support from family and friends. The head of the Cyrus family, Billy Ray Cyrus, tweeted how proud he is of “Noie,” while the cutest 12-year-old cowboy of our generation, Mason Ramsey, called Cyrus his friend and the song “good and sad.”

This is Cyrus’ first solo single of the year, coming right after her collab with Rence on “Expensive.” Last year saw the release of her debut EP Good Cry, collabs with a bunch of artists, and a nomination at the MTV VMA. And although 2019 has been a quiet year from Noah Cyrus, we’re hoping this track will be the first of many to come. Yee-freaking-haw.
