Miley Cyrus couldn't wait any longer to rock out to her new music video for "We Can't Stop."

The 20-year-old entertainer told her Twitter followers Wednesday morning that she was brimming with anticipation for the clip's release, and shortly thereafter she got her wish:

Cyrus has asked her followers to repeatedly watch the "We Can't Stop" clip in order to break a record on Vevo -- a goal that may just come to fruition. Less than two hours after it was posted on YouTube, the video has so far received 300,000-plus views (and counting) and more than 24,000 likes.

"We Can't Stop" marks a far departure from Cyrus' earlier music videos. The new surreal clip is more reminiscent of Fiona Apple's provocative "Criminal" video than anything the former Disney Channel star ever did in the past.

Young models are seen at an empty Los Angeles home, with a human head sculpted out of french fries and dancers wearing life-sized teddy bear backpacks also present.

Cyrus sports gold caps on her teeth at one point and she also dances the twerk. The letters "t-w-e-r-k" are seen spelled out in alphabet soup letters in one shot.

Tell us: Do you think Cyrus has gotten a little too edgy with "We Can't Stop," or is it about time she shows off her more adult side? You can judge for yourself by watching the music video below.

"We Can't Stop" is available for purchase on iTunes.
