On the track about exploring sexual and other personal freedom, Cyrus sings, "And we can't stop / We run things, things don't run we / Don't take nothing from nobody".

The publication summed up the lawsuit by saying "Mr. Flourgon seems to thinks Miley's declaration of not stopping is the same thing as him saying he 'runs things'". He cited the song lines, "We run things. Things don't run we".
"We Can't Stop" never reached No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100.
