Miley Cyrus' New Album to Feature Tyler, The Creator
In a new interview, Miley Cyrus reveals that her new album, her fourth one due to be released this year, will feature a contribution from rapper and record producer Tyler, The Creator. The alternative hip-hop collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All leader and co-founder will guest on a track written by Cyrus with Grammy Award-winning R'n'B/hip-hop diva Mary J. Blige.
"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!" Cyrus exclaimed about the new collaboration. She then hinted that the new album would be a mixture of country and hip-hop and metal.
"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."
In October last year, a photo of Cyrus, Tyler, The Creator, and composer and record producer Pharrell Williams was taken inside of a recording studio and was posted online by Williams on his Twitter account. News of their collaboration shortly went viral.
