We know from Twitter that Tyler, The Creator is kind of obsessed with Miley Cyrus in that weird way like, “He’s joking right? Is he joking? Wait, I don’t think he’s joking.” Now the unlikely pair has teamed up on record—Miley Cyrus’ record. Apparently Tyler laid down something for the upcoming album and Miley is quite pleased with it. Here’s what she said in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan:
Cosmo: You collaborate with many unexpected names on this record. Safe to say you have a new sound?
Miley: I wrote this song with Mary J. Blige, and Tyler the Creator heard it and said, “I am obsessed with this song, and I will guest on it if you promise me that you will keep it on the album.” And he killed it! I really didn’t want to make a hip-hop record, and I’m not trying at all to be a Rihanna or a Nicki [Minaj]….That’s not my vibe. When I was growing up, my older brother would sneak me Nelly CDs, my dad had me listening to Dolly [Parton] and Johnny [Cash], and my mom is a complete metal head. So this record is a weird mixture of all that.
