A Hip-hop Hoedown Released for 'Hannah Montana'
A Hip-hop Hoedown Released for 'Hannah Montana'
With Hannah Montana: The Movie less than a month away, the Disney Channel has been doing its best to promote the film.  Not that it needs any more hype, but the fans of the series seem pleased that the franchise is getting more attention.  This week, the network and Miley Cyrus have unveiled a new music video for the song “Hoedown Throwdown,” straight from the soundtrack of Hannah Montana: The Movie. 

“Hoedown Throwdown” is actually a self-proclaimed mix of country music and hip-hop, infused in a hoedown scene from the movie.  While it would be interesting to see how those two genres would be integrated, do you think Miley can really pull it off?  You can see for yourself on the video clip below.

Opened by the catchy “Boom Boom Clap, Boom De Clap De Clap,” the song seems rather different from Hannah Montana's general fare.  It's kind of a workout song or a square dance that's fitting for the show's target audience.

Also, the clip's a scene from the movie and has Miley singing it as herself.  Does this mean she's already decided on leaving behind that popstar lifestyle and sticking to just being Miley?  It's a little too early to tell though. 

However, from what we've seen, it appears as though Miley Stewart has already settled in her hometown and is having fun performing as a regular girl.  The hoedown seems like a good idea, but it looks as though the scene serves a bigger purpose for the movie.  If you've noticed, there's a “Save Crowley Meadows” banner behind the band playing. Maybe the Stewart family returned to their Tennesee hometown for other reasons?

Even though we're all still speculating on how Hannah Montana: The Movie will turn out, the long wait is almost over.  The film will hit US theaters on April 10 this year, much to the delight of fans.
