Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez took it back to the early 2000s for their new music announcement. On Friday, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez shared a cute Instagram Story exchange to announce exciting news. The former Disney channel stars will both be releasing new music next Friday.
“@mileycyrus and I both have a SINGLE SOON and we are releasing on the same day,” Gomez, 31, wrote in an Instagram Story post. “We have been friends since we USED TO BE YOUNG. Excited for August 25th!”
The text accompanied a clip of Gomez appearing on an episode of Cyrus’ hit television series Hannah Montana as rival Mikayla Skeech to highlight the coincidence. In the episode, the teens engaged in a hilariously catty exchange as they answered phones at a telethon. While seated next to one another, Gomez called Cyrus to let out a few witty jabs.
“Hey, what’s up? It’s Hannah Montana. What would you like to give?” the fictional teen superstar asked while answering a call. “I’d like to give you singing lessons. Just heard your new single, ouch,” Gomez’s character replied.
“Selena and Miley announcing new singles within 1 hour of each other,” Cyrus, 30, joked on her Instagram Story post of the same throwback video. She also used the title of the track “Used to be Young” to reiterate the fact that they two have known each other for quite some time. Their TV shows — Hannah Montana and Wizards of Waverly Place — aired on the Disney channel during their early teen years in the early 2000s.
“I decided to release ‘Used to be Young’ on August 25 because this particular date historically has been important to me personally and in my career,” the Bolt star explained in a snippet uploaded to her main page on Friday. Several other posts promoted the upcoming release as well.
“Y’all have been asking for new music for a while,” Gomez captioned a promo image for a new track on Thursday. “Since I’m not quite done with SG3, I wanted to put out a fun little song I wrote a while back that’s perfect for the end of summer. SINGLE SOON. August 25th. Presave it now. 😘”
