Beyonce II MOST WANTED Meaning and Review Featuring Miley Cyrus


II MOST WANTED: A Touching Ballad with Heartfelt Simplicity

"II MOST WANTED" is a beautiful and evocative country ballad. It excels in its heartfelt simplicity and the gorgeous vocal interplay between Beyoncé and Miley Cyrus. The song's themes of unwavering love and finding freedom become even more powerful if viewed as a tribute to Gloria Carter and Roxanne Wiltshire's love story.


Atmosphere and Musicality

The gentle acoustic guitar and subtle percussion create an intimate, almost campfire-like atmosphere. The chord progression, similar to "Landslide," evokes a sense of bittersweet nostalgia and reflection.  Lines like "They're lookin' for us, we're on the run",  and "You ride shotgun, I'll drive that getaway car" could be a traditional outlaw-love trope OR allude to the scrutiny and challenges Gloria likely faced in coming out later in life. The chorus emphasizes unbreakable bonds –  "'Til death do us part, I keep your heart right next to mine". This takes on extra weight knowing Beyoncé witnessed the joy her mother-in-law found in her later-life marriage.




Vocal Performances and Deeper Meaning

Beyoncé's vocals are tender and soulful, a departure from her usual powerhouse style. Miley brings a raspy, country-tinged sweetness that complements Beyoncé beautifully. Together, their voices create a sense of unwavering support and commitment. The Jay-Z quote adds another dimension: the song could simultaneously be about Gloria's newfound happiness but also Beyoncé finding liberation by supporting her mother-in-law's right to love.


II MOST WANTED Review Explained 

"II MOST WANTED"  is a touching, multi-layered track. Whether meant solely as a classic outlaw-love song or carrying the weight of Gloria Carter's story, it's a standout on "Cowboy Carter" because of its emotional authenticity and gorgeous performances.

Impulsive Love and Transformation

Verse 1 sets the stage for the overarching theme of impulsive, transformative love. The singers acknowledge the rapid pace of their relationship ("jumping the gun") yet embrace the excitement of youthful passion. They express how this encounter has deeply impacted them, leading to personal growth and a willingness to leave the past behind.


Suddenness, Intensity, and Rebellion

The pre-chorus emphasizes the suddenness and intensity of their connection. They were caught completely off guard ("out of nowhere"), and the "two most wanted" imagery paints a picture of a thrilling, almost rebellious bond. They feel like they've embarked on a passionate adventure together.


Unwavering Commitment and Escapism

The chorus solidifies their unwavering commitment and hints at a desire for escapism. The classic "shotgun rider" image symbolizes unwavering loyalty and a promise to stick together through thick and thin. Lines about  "smoke out of the window" and driving "down the 405" suggest a carefree attitude, perhaps connected to indulging in recreational substances and enjoying the moment.


Openness and Vulnerability

Verse 2 reveals a newfound openness and vulnerability. The image of an "empty hand" implies a willingness to let go of defenses and fully embrace the relationship. The line "been a while" suggests they've previously had tendencies to emotionally distance themselves and are now breaking those patterns with this new love.


Embracing the Moment and Surrender

The bridge revisits the themes of rushing in and the fleeting nature of youth but ends on a note of surrender.  There's a willingness to follow this love wherever it leads, further highlighting the level of trust involved.



Beyonce II MOST WANTED Lyrics Featuring Miley Cyrus

[Verse 1: Miley Cyrus & Beyoncé]

Know we're jumping the gun, but we're both still young

One day, we won't be

Didn't know what I want 'til I saw your face

Say goodbye to the old me


[Pre-Chorus: Miley Cyrus, Beyoncé, Beyoncé & Miley Cyrus]

Came out of nowhere, didn't give no warnin'

Pedal so heavy like the two most wanted

And I don't know what you're doin' tonight

But I


[Chorus: Beyoncé & Miley Cyrus]

I'll be your shotgun rider

'Til the day I die

Smoke out the window flyin'

Down the 405

I'll be your backseat baby, drivin' you crazy

Anytime you like

Woah, I'll be your shotgun rider

'Til the day I, 'til the day I die


[Verse 2: Miley Cyrus & Beyoncé]

Making waves in the wind with my empty hand

My other hand on you

Been a while since I haven't tried to pull away

But it's time for something new


[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé & Miley Cyrus]

Came out of nowhere, didn't give no warnin'

Pedal so heavy like the two most wanted

And I don't know what you're doin' tonight

But I


[Chorus: Beyoncé & Miley Cyrus]

I'll be your shotgun rider

'Til the day I die

Smoke out the window flyin'

Down the 405

Yeah, I'll be your backseat baby, drivin' you crazy

Anytime you like, woah

I'll be your shotgun rider

'Til the day I, 'til the day I die

I know we're jumpin' the gun and we're both still young

But one day, we won't be

I'll go wherever you take me, seems kinda crazy

Ooh, oh

I'll be your shotgun rider

'Til the day I die

We're gettin' high 'til we don't realize

Time is passin' by

Yeah, I'll be your backseat baby, I'm drivin' you crazy

Anytime you like, oh, oh

I'll be your shotgun rider

'Til the day I, 'til the day I die


[Post-Chorus: Beyoncé, Beyoncé & Miley Cyrus]

('Til the day I, 'til the day I, 'til the day I die)

'Til the day I die
