Kanye West drafts Miley Cyrus for 'Black Skinhead' remix

Miley Cyrus took no time to rest on the laurels of her world-twerking appearance last month at the MTV Video Music Awards, immediately returning to a recording studio to work with Kanye West on what is widely reported to be a remix of his “Yeezus” album track “Black Skinhead.”

“We went to the studio with Kanye,” Mike Will, executive producer of Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” album, told MTV this week. “We went right back to work.”

In “Black Skinhead,” West raps,

Enter the kingdom

But watch who you bring home

They see a black man with a white woman

At the top floor they gone come to kill King Kong

Cyrus has also been in the studio recently with rappers Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J on Will's new track “23.”

West gave a thumb’s up to Cyrus' controversial performance at the VMAs, Will said. “He told her she did right,” he said. “Ye is somebody who understands it.”

Will also said it was a smart move for Cyrus.

“She makes pop music,” he said. “She did exactly what she was supposed to do, she made the world talk about her for over a week. They’re still talking about her. We’re talking about her now. So she won.”
