Don’t read the headline and feel confused. It does indeed say “Black Skinhead (Remix)” from Kanye West & Miley Cyrus, with some additional ad-libs from Travi$ Scott. Mike WiLL Made-It had previously confirmed that West & Cyrus had worked together though nothing had come out, until today’s “Black Skinhead (Remix)” leak. Around the time of Yeezus, Kanye West worked with a host of people, including Cyrus. There was hints of a future Yeezus remix EP or even more collaborations between the two but those never surfaced.

Now, “Black Skinhead (Remix)” completely decides to neuter the original by subtracting West’s alarmed synths and marching band drums for something completely different, even with the original Yeezy verses. Cyrus covers Tears For Fears ’80s hit, “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” for the chorus and you can hear Scott’s presence somewhere in there. Don’t immediately call this the new G.O.O.D Fridays track to make up for last week’s missed date, or even an official remix. Just call it a very juxtaposed flip of angry Kanye in 2013.
