Description: ” Party in the USA ” is by Miley Cyrus ( Destiny Hope Cyrus ), the american singer. The song was written by Jessica Cornish, Lukasz Gottwald and Claude Kelly.

” Party in the USA ” was released as her first single by the record label Hollywood ( part of the Disney Music Group ) in august 2009 for her ” The time of our lives ” extended play ( EP ) project.
Originally intended to be recorded by Jessie J the song was turned down by her after she’d decided the song wasn’t quite edgy enough. The song was then given to Miley after some small adjustments to the lyrics to fit her personality.
Miley chose the song because she needed tracks for the EP, she couldn’t identify with the song although the lyrics are semi-autobiographical reflecting her relocation from Nashville Tennessee, to Hollywood California.
