This article is about the song by Hannah Montana. For the episode, see He Could Be the One.

"He Could Be the One" is a pop song by American recording artist and actress Miley Cyrus, performing as Hannah Montana – the alter ego of Miley Stewart – a character she played on the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana. The song was co-written and co-produced by Kara DioGuardi and Mitch Allan. "He Could Be the One" was released to Radio Disney on June 12, 2009, as promotion for an episode of the same title and the series' third soundtrack, Hannah Montana 3. A karaoke version is available in Disney's Karaoke Series: Hannah Montana 3. The song contains country pop elements in its music.

The song became Cyrus' best-charting song as Montana, reaching the top twenty in Norway and the United States. "He Could Be the One" peaked at number ten on the Billboard Hot 100, thus becoming Cyrus' first top ten single as Montana. The song's accompanying music video was arranged from clips from various Hannah Montana episodes.

The song was only featured in the season 3 episode with the same name, He Could Be the One.

Reception

Critical reception

Warren Truitt of About.com was immediately reminded of Shania Twain after listening to "He Could Be the One" due to its music and Cyrus' voice in the track. "Throw in a little Gwen Stefani, Joan Jett, and Avril Lavigne, produce it with some [...] Radio Disney", Truitt added about the song's influences. Truitt later listed the song as the seventh best song by Hannah Montana.

Chart performance

As it was not released as a single, "He Could Be the One" received exclusive airplay on Radio Disney, thus its chart appearances consisted mainly of digital downloads. It soon peaked at number two on the Top 30 Countdown, behind "Here We Go Again" by Demi Lovato. The song debuted at number two on Billboard's Hot Digital Songs Chart, selling 150,000 copies, which led to an appearance on the Billboard Hot 100, on the week ending July 25, 2009.[1] "He Could Be the One" debuted and peaked at number ten on the Billboard Hot 100, thus making the song Montana's highest-charting effort, surpassing her previous best-charting effort "Life's What You Make It", which peaked at number twenty-five in July 2007.[2] It became Cyrus' first and only song to chart in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 as Hannah Montana.[2] It spent a total of five weeks on the chart.[1] The song debuted and peaked at number ninety-seven on the Canadian Hot 100, spending one week on the chart.

"He Could Be the One" peaked at number sixty-four on the Australian Singles Chart, becoming Cyrus' best-charting effort as Hannah Montana in Australia.[3] On the week ending January 5, 2010, "He Could Be the One" debuted and peaked at number thirteen on the Norwegian Singles Chart, becoming Cyrus' first entry as Montana in the country. It fell from the Norwegian Singles Chart in the following week.[4]

Music video

The song's accompanying music video premiered on June 12, 2009 on Disney Channel.[5] The video begins with a narrator speaking, who says, "Boyfriends, one's a heartbreaker. One's got a lot of heart. Miley Stewart wants to know who could be the one", as American actors Cody Linley and Drew Roy are introduced. In the episode "He Could Be the One", Linley portrays Jake Ryan, Stewart's longtime love interest and ex-boyfriend, and Roy portrays Jesse, a guitar player who she eventually becomes attracted to. Stewart is then seen holding a pair of photographs of the two, in confusion. Throughout the remainder of the video, clips from numerous episodes from Hannah Montana are integrated. The video concludes with a scene of Stewart grunting as she again holds the photographs and slams herself against a bed.

Lyrics

Smooth-talking
So rockin'
He's got everything that a girl's wantin'
Guitar cutie
He plays it groovy
And I can't keep myself from doing something stupid

Think I'm really falling for his smile
Get butterflies when he says my name

He's got something special
He's got something special
And when he's looking at me, I wanna get all sentimental
He's got something special
He's got something special
I can hardly breathe, something's been telling me, telling me maybe
He could be the one
He could be the one
He could be the one....
He could be the one
He could be the one
He could be the one...

He's lightning
Sparks are flyin'
Everywhere I go he's always on my mind and
I'm goin' crazy
About him lately
And I can't help myself from how my heart is racing

Think I'm really digging on his vibe
He really blows me away

He's got something special
He's got something special
And when he's looking at me, I wanna get all sentimental
He's got something special
He's got something special
I can hardly breathe, something's been telling me, telling me maybe
He could be the one
He could be the one
He could be the one....
He could be the one
He could be the one
He could be the one...

And he's got a way of making me feel
Like everything I do is
Perfectly fine
The stars are aligned when I'm with him
And I'm so into him...

He's got something special
He's got something special
And when he's looking at me, I wanna get all sentimental
He's got something special
He's got something special
I can hardly breathe, something's been telling me, telling me maybe
He could be the one
He could be the one
He could be the one....
He could be the one
He could be the one
He could be the one...
