On the rework, which dropped April 30, the pop star and Australian rapper trade vocal duties on the acoustic guitar-driven song. It arrived with a music video directed by Cyrus that shows the two stars singing together beside a roaring flame, sitting on the hood of a truck and more.

Earlier this week, Cyrus revealed she would perform the song with LAROI on the May 8 episode of Saturday Night Live, which will feature her as musical guest alongside host Elon Musk.
A behind-the-scenes video Cyrus shared of the ‘Without You’ remix video shoot shows that the pair had had “life talks” about a career in music. “I think you can decide in the music business when you’re in the industry and then when you’re just creating – and those are two different things,” Cyrus told LAROI, real name Charlton Howard.
“What I got from you when we started working together is that first and foremost you’re a fucking songwriter, and not a puppet,” she added. Watch the clip below:

‘Without You’ is lifted from the deluxe or ‘savage’ version of The Kid LAROI’s debut mixtape ‘F*CK LOVE’. The TikTok-popular track is one of the rapper’s top-streaming songs to date.
NME gave the project four stars upon its release last July, with reviewer Kyann-Sian Williams calling The Kid LAROI “proof that the next generation are ready, willing and able to bring something new to the table”.
Cyrus’ last full-length release was also in 2020: the album ‘Plastic Hearts’, which NME also rated four stars. Its singles included ‘Prisoner’ featuring Dua Lipa and ‘Midnight Sky’, which later got a mashup with Stevie Nicks’ ‘Edge of Seventeen’.
Cyrus had previously alluded to releasing more music in 2021, writing on Instagram in January: “Predicting a 2021 full of safe sex & effloresce (AND more fucking MUSIC).”
