Miley Cyrus Reflects on Inspiring Friendship and Collaboration With Beyonce

After her collaborative track with Queen Bey titled 'II Most Wanted' was launched, the 'Wrecking Ball' songstress unveils the creative process behind the collaboration.

AceShowbiz - Miley Cyrus and Beyonce Knowles have shared a unique bond for years. With their recent hit duet "II Most Wanted", Miley unveils the journey of their friendship and the creative process behind their latest collaboration.

In the latest issue of W Magazine, Cyrus, now 31, reflects on her relationship with the iconic Beyonce, 42. The country-Western duet, featured on Beyonce's album "Cowboy Carter", peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April and has captured the hearts of many. Reflecting on their collaboration, Cyrus revealed, "I wrote that song, like, two and a half years ago. When Beyonce reached out to me about music, I thought of it right away because it really encompasses our relationship."

The genesis of their collaboration dates back to a memorable 2008 event. Cyrus, then just 14 and known for her "Hannah Montana" persona, performed in the Stand Up to Cancer charity event alongside stars like Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey and Beyonce. "I was sandwiched between Beyonce and Rihanna," she recalled. "They were protective of me."

Their bond flourished over the years, deeply rooted in mutual respect and understanding. They often communicate via text, discussing everything from their mutual passion for music to the similarities between their mothers. "One of the things that we text about is our relationships with our mothers," shared Cyrus. "Her mom, Ms. Tina, and my mom, Mama Tish Cyrus, have played pivotal roles in our lives and careers."

When Beyonce approached her for the collaboration, Cyrus was ecstatic. "Getting to write a song, not just sing, for Beyonce was a dream come true," she noted. This sentiment is echoed by both artists in "II Most Wanted", a song that explores the devotion between two individuals, featuring an interpolation of the 1975 Fleetwood Mac classic "Landslide". The duet showcases their powerful harmonization and lyrical depth, as seen in the chorus: "I'll be your shotgun rider 'til the day I die/ Smoke out the window, flyin' down the 405."
