"Malibu" is a song recorded by American singer Miley Cyrus as the lead single from Cyrus' upcoming sixth studio album, which is set for release in October 2017, and will be the first full-length project by Cyrus since her 2015 experimental album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz. It was written by Cyrus and Oren Yoel, and produced by Yoel. The song premiered on Beats 1 on May 11, 2017, and subsequently released for digital download and streaming by RCA Records.
The song discusses Cyrus' relationship with current fiancé and fellow The Last Song co-star, Liam Hemsworth. Critics viewed "Malibu" as indicative of Cyrus' transition into becoming a more mellow artist, and more removed from her previously controversial image. The song became her ninth top-ten entry on the US Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number ten.
