What happens when Miley Cyrus gets recruited to sing the hook on Mike Will Made It’s new single “23”? Well, fans will have to wait a few more weeks to hear the whole song, but the producer did drop a short, but sweet teaser for the track, which also features Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa, late Tuesday night.
The 27-second clip proves that this team is out to party. With its club-ready beat Wiz spits “I’m not no wannabe/ Waitress asks how many bottles/ I say 23.” Then Miley comes in with her verse.
In her signature raspy tone, she sings, “I’m naughty by nature.” (Oh, we see what you did there.) Then she adds, “My hands in the sky/ I wave ‘em from side to side/ my feet on the floor/ I’m about to turn up now.”
The full version of “23” will make its debut on August 26; one day after the VMA-nominated Miley is set to appear at the VMAs on August 25, live from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. The track doesn’t mark the first collaboration for Miley and Mike Will. He also produced the singer’s lead Bangerz track, “We Can’t Stop.”
At the VMAs she’s up for three Moonmen for “We Can’t Stop.” Mike Will makes a cameo in the Diane Martel-directed clip.
