The remix dates back to 2013 and, according to an interview with frequent Cyrus producer Mike Will Made It, was cut immediately after the pop star’s notorious, twerk-filled performance at the MTV Video Music Awards.
The long-awaited results are suitably ridiculous, and reportedly feature Travi$ Scott and Lupe Fiasco. Though the production has been switched up, the track retains the overall industrial trap vibe of Yeezus, though Cyrus softens the crushing blows with a sultry rendition of the hook from Tears for Fears’ 1985 smash, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.”
Despite West’s recent goodwill in the lead-up to his new album, Swish, it’s unclear if he was attached to the leak of the “Black Skinhead” remix. West’s most recent, official offerings include the Kendrick Lamar-featuring “No More Parties in L.A.” and “Good Friends.” It’s unknown if either song will appear on Swish, which arrives February 11th.
