Miley Cyrus collaborates with Snoop Lion for 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks' (Listen)
Miley Cyrus is bringing the reggae vibe in a new collaboration with a very famous rapper.
Cyrus collaborated with Snoop Lion, formerly known as Snoop Dogg, for a track on his upcoming studio album that's titled "Reincarnated." The song, "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks," marks the first major studio release for Cyrus since her 2010 album, "Can't Be Tamed."
The track, which starts out with Snoop Lion singing "tonight there's gonna be a whole lot of smoke in the air," was produced by Major Lazer, Ariel Rechtshaid and Dre Skull. The song features additional vocals from Angela Hunte and contains a reggae percussion feel provided by Stewart Copeland of The Police.
"Now my buzz is gone, and I need to re-up on reality," Cyrus sings in one part of the track. In the chorus, she sings with Snoop Lion, crooning: "Ashtrays and heartbreaks / I lost some, let's toast to one / So raise a glass to the memories and set em' free / And fill up all the ashtrays / Fill up all the ashtrays."
Cyrus, 20, promoted the song to her 11 million Twitter followers on April 3, posting: "#AshtraysAndHeartbreaks."
She later posted a photo of herself in her car, captioning it: "Dancing to Ashtrays & Heartbreaks in my carrrrr! Play that [expletive] loud!!" (See photo above).
The singer is expected to release her own solo album sometime in 2013.
Snoop Lion, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, officially changed his name in July 2012. The 41-year-old rapper explained that he would be embracing reggae to make music that his "kids and grandparents can listen to." At the time, he also released the first single from his new album "Reincarnated," which is set for release on April 23, titled "La La La." Listen to it here.
He also took to his official Twitter page to promote the single, Tweeting: "#ashtraysandheartbreaks @MileyCyrus @majorlazer #reincarnated."
