Miley Cyrus performed her new song “Younger Now” live for the first time at the 2017 MTV VMAs on Sunday. Check out the video below!

“Younger Now” is the title track of Cyrus’ upcoming album, which is due out September 29. The song was released a week and a half ago as the second single from the record, following “Malibu,” which came out earlier this year. Since the new track dropped so recently, data for its impact on the Billboard charts is not yet available. Still, the music video, which debuted the same day, caused buzz for its retro vibe, as well as its inclusion of a stripper pole, which many interpreted as a nod to Cyrus’ past.

The singer infamously included stripper poles in her 2009 “Party In The U.S.A.” performance at the Teen Choice Awards. At the time, the “Hannah Montana” star was still considered relatively wholesome and child-friendly, but over the next several years, Cyrus shed that image. In fact, some of her most controversial moments have take place at the MTV Video Music Awards. In 2013, she and Robin Thicke caused a major stir with their raunchy mashup of “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines.” And when the pop star hosted the VMAs ceremony in 2015, she walked the red carpet practically naked.

Of course, the annual event is also about celebrating music videos, hence the name, and Cyrus has a long history with that, too. She scored her first nomination in the category of Best New Artist for “Seven Things” back in 2008. Despite additional nominations in 2009, 2013 and 2014, she’s only won once to date, although it was for the biggest category: Video of the Year. Cyrus took home the honor in 2014 for “Wrecking Ball.” Going into tonight’s event, she and “Malibu” were up for Pop Video of the Year. Watch video of the “Younger Now” performance below.
