Cyrus’s 10-song set also included three previously unheard songs, Mother’s Daughter, Cattitude and Dream, which are expected to be a part of the new EP.

The latter is a brooding rock number in which she sings the line, “Drugs rule everything around me,” which is a nod to Wu-Tang Clan’s C.R.E.A.M.

In Cattitude, the singer refers to a number of artists, including Nicki Minaj to Cardi B. “I love you Nicki,” she sings, “but I listen to Cardi.

Cyrus then took to Twitter to reference these lyrics with a number of other musicians. “I love you Miley, but I listen to Hannah,” she wrote. Another comapred Selena Gomez to Demi Lovato, and finally Ariana Grande to Cyrus’s own former alter-ego, Hannah Montana.

Mother’s Daughter is expected to drop this Thursday, May 30, as the first single, as it was previously hinted in a tweet by the star.

On top of the upcoming EP, Cyrus will also be featured in Black Mirror’s fifth season, which premieres on June 5.

During her performance, the star revealed the premise of the episode she’s featured in. “This is the story of females in the music industry,” she told the crowd. “I understand everyone’s gone through this,” she continued, “but I do think for females in the industry… it’s hard to be taken seriously.”

“People assume that if you’re not wearing a body suit and singing pop music, why would anyone want to see you,” she concluded.
