Miley Cyrus' We Can't Stop was for Rihanna
Miley Cyrus new single, 'We Can't Stop', was originally meant for Rihanna, but producer Mike Will Made It say she has put her own swag on the song
Miley Cyrus' 'We Can't Stop' was originally meant for Rihanna.
The 20-year-old singer is hoping for a number one in the US after releasing her first single since 2011, but producer Mike Will Made It admitted the song was initially penned Rihanna because he felt it suited her fiery attitude.
Speaking to MTV, Mike said: "When I originally worked on 'We Can't Stop,' we had did it for Rihanna.
"The idea was more towards Rihanna. And then Rihanna, she heard 'Pour It Up' and she got on that track right away. And she didn't even hear 'We Can't Stop'. So then we finished up the record."
Mike claims Miley has developed a new kind of "swag" for her comeback record and he's pleased with how the finished tune has turned out.
He added: "Miley liked it, and we ended up going in, caught a good vibe, and she's real cool, regular person.
"We went in, she nailed the record, and she did it with her swag. So it sounds different than from what we originally tried to come up with."
'We Can't Stop will be released in the UK on August 18.
