Miley Cyrus is officially Lana Del Rey‘s biggest fan. On Friday January 8, the colorful “BB Talk” singer took to Instagram to post an incredibly hazy video of herself singing Lana’s Born To Die hit single, “Video Games.”

Only a few seconds long, the blurry clip showcases Miley’s honeyed bedroom vocals as she lays in bed, cooing part of the track’s chorus while filming herself on her phone camera. Apparently, she woke up with the song firmly planted in her head, as she explains via the caption, (incoherently) sharing, “Weird despo cheesy a$$ instasangin vid lol woke up w dis stuck in my dome ! Thankzzzz for da openin gust of wind #bestfrand #1fan #cleanyoscreenbitch”

Alrighty then. Anyway, take a look and listen below and remember kids: keep yo’ screen clean!

This isn’t the first time that Miley has showed off her love for Lana Del Rey, however. In 2013, the artist performed a brooding guitar-assisted acoustic cover of “Summertime Sadness” for BBC Radio 1‘s Live Lounge. Bluesy and impassioned, Cyrus injected her special emotive country twang into Lana’s dreamy electro-ballad. Watch below:

The same year, Miley showed off her love for Lana once more during a game of “Would You Rather?” with 4Music, selecting Lana over Carly Rae Jepsen when asked “Which female pop star with ‘Ray’ in their name would you rather hang out with?” Her reasoning? “Carly’s got Justin [Bieber], so who does Lana got? Me.” Sounds legit.

The only thing that would make this love-fest even cuter would be if Lana and Miley collaborated on a track, or if Lana did a cover of one of Miley’s songs. Come to think of it, how amazing would  a spooky Lana version of “Party in the U.S.A.” be?
