Miley Cyrus and Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead” collaboration has leaked online, more than two years after it was recorded.
The remix, off West’s“Yeezus,” was done in 2013 and this is the first time that the world hears it.
Aside from West, the track features Cyrus singing a cover of “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears along with some input from Travis Scott at the end, Daily News reported.

According to Metro, “Black Skinhead” was recorded around the time of Cyrus’ notorious twerking performance with Robin Thicke at the VMAs. However, the track was never released due to an undisclosed reason.
In August 2013, Page Six reported that Cyrus’ skipped her own VMA after-party at NYC’s No. 8 nightclub for a “top secret” collaboration.
Sources later confirmed it was a project with West. After performing “Blood On the Leaves,” instead of “Black Skinhead” as planned, Page Six reported that the rapper also skipped the post-VMA parties to head into the studio.
Now, the four-minute song has arrived and it has a bit of 80s twist. Majority of the Twitter users didn’t think it was all that good though, Metro noted. Others found it okay while some suggested that the “Wrecking Ball” hitmaker should be a permanent fixture on West’s tracks.
Meanwhile, there are also rumours that West will also release a remix EP this year featuring the Miley-Kanye remix.
Kim Kardashian’s husband recently had song collaboration with Sia. West co-wrote “Reaper,” one of Sia’s songs in her new album, “This Is Acting.” West released his song, “Wolves,” last year which featured the “Chandelier” singer and rapper Vic Mensa.
West’s newly released track, “Facts,” also sparked controversy after it took shots at many recent headlines including Bill Cosby, Steve Harvey’s Miss Universe disaster and even criticised Nike’s new lifetime contract with LeBron James.
The NBA star hit back, saying he hasn’t had the time to hear the much-talked single.
