Former Disney star tests out rap skils.
On the surface, the Miley Cyrus and French Montana friendship seems like an odd pairing, but musically the duo now have common ground. Cyrus hopped on Montana's "Ain't Worried About Nothin'" remix and posted a preview from their studio session on her Facebook page last night.
In the snippet, Cyrus adds vocals to the hook and goes in for a rap verse featuring Molly and Versace, an ode to the "thick girls" in her "We Can't Stop" music video, and this bold line: "You think I'm turnt up? Wait until my album drop."
The former Disney TV star who, for years, played a character who lived a double life — as a "normal" girl and as a pop star named "Hannah Montana" — has been facing backlash from the public as she's been shedding that image to come into her own. The backlash was especially vitriolic after videos of her twerking became viral. She had this message to the haters to accompany her rap debut: "I know what color my skin is. you can stop with the friendly reminders b----."
In spite of her critics, the 20-year-old's transition into the rap world has been a smooth one, and not just at French's side. She was spotted in the studio with Pharrell and Tyler, the Creator earlier in the year, featured on Snoop's "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks" and starred in Big Sean's "Fire Video."
Additionally, Cyrus' "We Can't Stop," produced by Mike Will Made It, is the fastest VEVO video to reach 100 million page views and has topped the charts stateside and in the UK.
Her Bangerz album is due out sometime this year.
