Twenty-year-old Miley Cyrus has enlisted Tyler, The Creator for her upcoming album.
In an interview for a Cosmopolitan magazine cover story, the former Disney star reveals that she wrote a song with Mary J. Blige that the Odd Future leader ended up hearing. He said that he would offer a guest verse as long as she promised to keep the track on the LP.
“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!” she said. “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.”
Tyler, The Creator originally intended to release his third album Wolf in November, though it is currently unknown when the LP will drop. He also was working on a collaborative project with Earl Sweatshirt titled EarlWolf, but that project is also without a release date.
