Background

"He Could Be the One" was originally premiered on Radio Disney to promote an hour long Hannah Montana event, titled after the song. On the track, Cyrus (as Montana) sings about love. She has a crush and claims that the attraction is deeper and more "special", by singing the lines: "he's got something special, he's got something special, and when's he's lookin' at me I wanna get all sentimental".

"He Could Be the One" has a similar up-tempo synth-pop composition like "Let's Get Crazy" and "Let's Do This". The song has a moderate synth-dance-rock groove and it is composed in the key of E major with a tempo of 132 beats per minute.[3]

Promotion and critical reception

The single, received airplay on Radio Disney. And it was used during and to promote an hour-long episode of Hannah Montana, titled the same, that aired July 5, 2009.[4] A promotional music video was released on Disney Channel the same night that contained clips from the episode.[2] It was also used as background music and a song which the contestants had to guess in Hannah Montana: Sing Whaaat?, a television commercial-segment game show used to promote the album.[5]

Montana (Cyrus) and Jesse (Roy) writing "He Could Be the One" in the story using a keyboard.

About.com liked the song and commented: "the musical reference that immediately comes to mind is Shania Twain (listen to "He Could Be the One") especially with Cyrus' slight twang and husky voice. Throw in a little Gwen Stefani, Joan Jett, and Avril Lavigne, produce it with some fizzy Radio Disney pop rock, and voila, Hannah Montana!"[6]
