Kanye West and Miley Cyrus’ remix of Yeezus track “Black Skinhead” has finally leaked, over two years after news of the collaboration first surfaced, Vulture reports.

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.
