On July 24, Noah Cyrus released a cover of Mac Miller’s “Dunno” to honor his legacy and support The Mac Miller Fund.

On September 7, 2018, Miller passed away from a drug overdose. Only a month prior, Miller released his fifth studio album, Swimming. Soon after, Swimming was nominated for the Best Rap Album at the Grammy Awards. Miller rapped about his mental state, heartbreak, and hope at the end of a long tunnel. He continues to be in people’s hearts for his unique artistic ability and meaningful lyrics, and Cyrus is no exception.

Cyrus also donated to The Pittsburgh Foundation’s Mac Miller Fund, which gives opportunities and resources to young adults from underserved communities. The fund also supports young individuals overcoming substance abuse and fosters a sense of community building through therapy and post-treatment services.

Miller’s song, “Dunno,” was dedicated to Ariana Grande. They split in 2018, the same year that Miller passed away. In “Dunno,” Cyrus sings Miller’s lyrics, I think we just might be alright, thank God / I think we’re gonna be alright, alright, okay / Hold me close, don’t hold your breath / This feelin’ your favorite, I know, and she continues, Let’s get lost inside the cloud.  In the cover of “Dunno,” Cyrus sings about love, but we understand the heartbreak of covering Miller’s songs. While we know that Miller will not come back, like Cyrus, we can continue his legacy.
