If no one hears the collaboration between two of the biggest artists in the music industry, did it ever really happen? That was pretty much the line of thinking all the way back in 2013, when reports surfaced that wild child Miley Cyrus had recorded a remix of Kanye West’s anthem “Black Skinhead.”
The remix was shelved after Cyrus’ twerk-filled MTV Video Music Awards performance took over the world… until now! On Wednesday, a version of the long-awaited track debuted online for your throwback listening pleasure. Good thing “Yeezus” still slaps as hard as it did two years ago.
In the song, Cyrus provides vocals, covering Tears for Fears’ “Everybody wants to rule the world.” Travi$ Scott and Lupe Fiasco also reportedly guest on the track.
No one knows whether West was involved with the drop. Mr Kim Kardashian has been releasing songs in anticipation of his upcoming album “Swish” on Fridays, but it’s unclear whether any of these will appear on Kanye’s album!
“Swish” is set to drop on February 11.
As of 2013, West has won a total of 21 Grammy Awards, making him one of the most awarded artists of all-time. About.com ranked West #8 on their Top 50 Hip-Hop Producers list. On May 16, 2008, West was crowned by MTV as the year’s #1 Hottest MC in the Game. On December 17, 2010, West was voted as the MTV Man of the Year by MTV.
