Miley Cyrus got pop fans everywhere excited when she confirmed earlier this week that she and Britney Spears are linking up on her Bangerz track “SMS (BANGERZ).” And now, we’re finally getting details.
Around the same time Miley debuted her new brown hair in Paris, she sat down with U.K. talk show “Alan Carr’s Chatty Man” to talk about what the song sounds like.
“It’s a fast one; it’s got to be! It’s Britney, bitch!” Miley said in an interview airing Friday night (September 13), Capital FM reports. “She’s got one of those voices that as soon as it comes on everyone in the world knows it’s Britney Spears, and that’s what I wanted. There’s just a whole vibe that’s around Britney Spears and what she represented, it’s like too crazy.”
She added that there’s “so much her and I connect on,” and considering the two have the same manager, Larry Rudolph, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that they were able to make a collaboration happen. But Cyrus explained it all finally came together at Spears’ request.
“Well, we’ve been trying to work together, and I felt like there had to be that right time. And after ‘We Can’t Stop’ came out, she called and said how much she loved the song,” she recalled. “At first she heard the song and she didn’t know it was me, and then she watched the video and just sort of fell in love with the video.
“I think it kind of reminded her of what she did when she was 20 and the feeling of kind of wanting to free yourself and represent so many girls, and so it was cool to be able to get her on the song,” Miley further explained. “I don’t think there’s any pop idol that I care about more than I care about Britney, because that was the first CD I ever bought.”
Bangerz officially drops on October 8, days after her MTV documentary, “Miley: The Movement,” premieres on October 2. So fans won’t have to wait much longer to hear what the two pop stars managed to record.

Before the collaboration was revealed, Cyrus opened up about her friendship with the older and wiser pop star, who is also a former Disney star. “Everyone goes through a time in their life where they don’t want their picture taken every day. [Britney] just never had that time where she could say, ‘I’m going through something right now and need to shut down,’” she said back in July. “I also don’t have that, so it’s good to have that one person in my life who gets it.”
