Judging from Miley Cyrus‘ vast and varied musical influences in recent memory, we imagine her upcoming fourth album will cover a myriad of genres, from hip-hop and R&B to dubstep and everything in between.
It’s been well-publicized that Cyrus is working closely Pharrell Williams for her 2013 release. She also hit the studio with Meek Mill and Tyler, the Creator, and subsequently gave the heave-ho to any shred left of her Hannah Montana alter ego.
So what exactly will this album sound like? Miley confirmed all the beats (so far) are hip-hop influenced with a heavy-handed, dirty-South vibe. Pharrell Williams said the album’s “nowhere near what it is that you think.”
Other collaborators include Flippa and Pop Wansel, who have previously worked with big names like Rihanna, Wiz Khalifa, and Alicia Keys. At this moment in time, Cyrus’ list of collaborators is giving us more questions than answers — the biggest one: will Miley rap?
Finally, Cyrus also posted a very cryptic tweet that read, “I’m ready when @1tiffanyfoxx & @LilKim are.” A Miley and Lil Kim collabo? Go on ladies… we’re listening.
