Miley Cyrus, Kanye West

We actually have something to celebrate #ThrowbackThursday with today: a song Miley Cyrus and Kanye West worked on three years ago.

The pop star reportedly left her own MTV VMA party in 2013—yes, the year she infamously twerked all over Robin Thicke—to record a remix of "Black Skinhead" with ‘Ye. However, we haven't heard even a hint about it until Wednesday night when it finally leaked on the Internet.

Though recorded just a few years ago, the toned down track takes us back to the 80s with Cyrus' funky interpolation covering Tears for Fears' 1985 hit "Everybody Wants to Rule the World." The remix also features quite a bit of Travi$ Scott's autotune magic and even a hint of House of Pain's "Jump Around."

Yes, it's an interesting jumble of sounds, to say the least, but it somehow works.

Meanwhile, the new song comes during Kanye's revived G.O.O.D. Fridays—in which he releases a new song at the end of each working week—ahead of his seventh solo album Swish. He kicked off 2016 by dropping "Facts" on New Year's Eve and has since released several more songs, including "Real Friends" and "No More Parties in LA."

There's still no word as to whether the "Black Skinhead" remix leak is in conjunction with tomorrow's G.O.O.D. Friday release, and neither Kanye or Miley have spoken out about the track.
