Tyler, The Creator to appear on Miley Cyrus song co-written by Mary J. Blige

This certainly tops that Tyler-Miley-Pharrell collaboration in the weirdness department.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, the Disney-bred pop star opened up about the sound of her new album, sharing news of an unlikely collaboration (via Pitchfork):

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! 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.

As previously reported, Tyler and Miley joined Pharrell in the studio last fall. Tyler’s third album, Wolf, is expected this year, and we’re hoping he bounces back after the disappointing Goblin.
