Here, Dua Lipa joins Miley Cyrus to sing about a controlling relationship where their lovers manipulate them to stay. Prisoner, prisoner, locked up Can't get you off my mind, off my mind Lord knows I tried a million times, million times, Why can't you, why can't you just let me go? The girls feel like they can't leave their men, which makes them feel like prisoners.
Released on November 19, 2020 as the second single from Plastic Hearts, Miley Cyrus told Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 it's a perfect song for the COVID-era. "We're just trapped in our emotions right now. I mean, really me, there's no escaping it. It's like, 'Locked up, can't get you off my mind.'"
The synth-heavy rock track is a blend of Dua's techno and Miley's pop-rock styles. Cyrus told Zane Lowe it was one of several songs the two powerhouse divas cut together. "She wanted to keep going until it was right, until we found the one that honors our individuality," she said of Lipa. "We just waited until we felt like, "Now this is Dua-Miley song. You can just, everything about it reflects us."
