She's already got twerking down, and now we can add rapping to Miley Cyrus' long list of skillz.

The former Disney darling appears on Mike Will Made It's latest single, "23."

Rappers Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa also have verses featured on the highly anticipated track.

Miley opens up the song by saying, "I'm in the club, high off purp with some shades on/Tatted up, miniskirt and my J's on."

She also goes on to say that she's standing on couches, drinking out of the bottle and acting like she "has no respect."

The "We Can't Stop" singer also drops a savvy reference to the 1993 Naughty by Nature anthem, "Hip-Hop Hooray." Street cred points just shot through the roof for Miley, right? Okay, we thought so.

The song hit the airwaves just hours after scandalous video for the 20-year-old's second single off of Bangerz was released.

"Wrecking Ball" features the blond beauty completely nude writhing on—what else?—a wrecking ball.

The Terry Richardson-directed clip also shows her licking a sledgehammer and demolishing a wall in nothing but her white skivvies.

But it looks like Billy Ray Cyrus is coming to his daughter's defense after the video caused mixed reactions.

"It wouldn't have mattered if Miley would have worn jeans and a flannel shirt, a tux or a nun's habit—her performance vocally on the tune reflects her roots and sheer God-given talent," he argued.

"I'm a song man," he added. "A musician singer-songwriter who loves all styles of music. I come from the old school where it starts with an artist and a song, colliding if you will, in a moment where the song, the singer, the producer, the band, and the listener become one."

"The song's a smash," he added.
