Nothing makes us happier than chatting with Miley Cyrus! The singer stopped backstage to chat about her new single "Malibu" and the fun antics that go down with her little sis, Noah! "She's been doing promo for her new song, 'I'm Stuck,' and I've been doing promo for 'Malibu so we've just been in all different places," she said. "We're meeting up tonight and it's always really exciting when I get to share a show with her."

Backstage before her performance, Noah Cyrus stepped in to gush about her big sister - and fellow BLI Summer Jam performer Miley - and how cool it is that the two are sharing the stage tonight! The 17-year-old also dished on her upcoming debut album and how she'd describe her singles as having a "different, yet cohesive" feel to them. "'I'm Stuck' just came out and that's more country-pop," she says. "'Make Me' is more emo-pop and 'Stay Together' is like a rock-pop song." To hear more from the talented artist, stay tuned for the full-length interview!
James Arthur was all smiles backstage when talking "Say You Won't Let Go" with us! "I just thought it would be a simple love song," he said. "I didn't know it would end up being everywhere." The singer also revealed that the song was never meant to be a single; until his record label pushed for it, "Say You Won't Let Go" was just going to be an album track! To hear more about his music and his favorite thing about being in New York, stay tuned to the full interview on 106.1 BLI!
Backstage, Tinashe couldn't stop gushing over her pup, Jazzy! Though she's back in LA, that didn't stop the loving dog mom from giving Jazzy a shout-out on BLI's Facebook Live stream! The singer also dished on her latest hit, "Flame," and how vulnerable she felt while writing it. "It's hard as an artist to tap into that kind of stuff because it's really personal," she says. "I really wanted to put out a record that was relatable to people so I had to tap into those emotions."

"That's all I've ever and my true fans know that," he said. To hear more from him, stay tuned for the full-length interview - coming soon!
Backstage before her set, Sabrina Carpenter stopped by to talk about her two passions: singing and acting. "They're kind of similar," she says. "They help each other out. When you're alone in front of a camera, you're isolated and there's not a lot of people around. When I'm in the studio, it's also very isolated. I love how I can get completely different personalities and emotions across through acting and singing. I can get my stories across in music and other people's stories across in acting."
