Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead (Remix)” with Miley Cyrus Leaks
Kanye West's remix of "Black Skinhead" featuring Miley Cyrus has finally make its way to the web. The 2013 collaboration, which was first reported over two years ago, has officially leaked. It's unclear if Kanye West or his team had anything to do with the song's leaking at this time.
The collaboration is about as bizarre as you might expect. The production is completely switched up and Miley Cyrus is heard delivering a rendition of the chorus from Tears for Fears' 1985 hit "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" on the remix. It's not a far cry from the vibe of the original "Black Skinhead," but it's still an odd combination of sounds.
Mike WiLL Made-It told MTV two years ago that the collaboration came about after Miley Cyrus' infamous twerking performance at that MTV Video Music Awards.
"We went right back to work," Mike WiLL Made-It said of the remix at the time. "It's about done, just touching the beat up a little bit. It sound crazy too."
Apparently Kanye West had some positive feedback for Miley Cyrus after her performance too.
"[He] told her that she did right, too," Mike WiLL Made-It said. "Ye is somebody who understands it. I think people that understand it aren't gonna really have anything too negative, or too much to say about the performance."
While this leak may or may not have been planned, it keeps Kanye West's name on everyone's mind. His new album Swish is scheduled to drop on Feb. 11.
