Miley Cyrus + Travi$ Scott Remix of Kanye West’s ‘Black Skinhead’ Surfaces
After the 2015 MTV VMAs, two moments dominated the next day’s headlines: Miley Cyrus‘s reaction to Nicki Minaj’s “Miley, what’s good?” (amid a hosting gig more notable for the pop star’s outfits than her ability to make the scripted jokes funny), and Kanye West‘s Video Vanguard Award speech/surprise campaign announcement. But back in 2013 — right after Miley had thrilled some and horrified others with her VMAs performance alongside Robin Thicke — producer Mike Will Made It told MTV that she headed straight to the studio with Kanye to record a “Black Skinhead” remix. That remix has never been heard. Until today.
Flipping Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” in the rework, Cyrus’s feature warms the track alongside production that’s slower than the rollicking original, which was crafted by a team including Daft Punk and French techno artist Gesaffelstein. Current rapper du jour (and Rihanna‘s rumored boyfriend) Travi$ Scott appears on this version as well.
