Miley Cyrus may not be one of those rapper guy’s girlfriends (yet), but the pop songstress continues to express her love for the urban scene, via the many vocal features she’s taken part in over the last few months. And this time around, the singer is in familiar company — on a new track produced by the “Can’t Hold Us” singer’s friend Pharrell Williams.
Released as part of up-and-comer Buddy’s Idle Time mixtape, the song, entitled “Smoke Signals,” finds Miley’s soaring vocals claiming “You take me high” behind the rapper’s West Coast inspired bars. And, surprisingly, it doesn’t have as much to do with drugs as you might expect.
This isn’t the first hip hop collaboration for Miley, who has already lent her talents to artists including Snoop Lion (“Ashtrays and Heartbreaks”), Future (“Real and True”), and will.i.am (“Feelin’ Myself”), as well as friend and producer Mike WiLL Made It (“23”).
The release of “Smoke Signals” comes during a busy time for Miley, who recently kicked off her Bangerz Tour in Vancouver. And after just two weeks on the road, the singer is making headlines for a risque show that includes riding a hotdog (no wrecking ball?), Marijuana-adorned outfits that leave little to the imagination — and a suggestive skit involving the scandals of former president Bill Clinton. Oh yeah, and she may have put someone’s underwear in her mouth the other night (she’s just being Miley).Find out where Miley’s tour will be stopping by next here, and check out the new song below...
