The rumors are true: Kanye West has tapped Miley Cyrus for the official remix of Yeezus track “Black Skinhead,” producer Mike Will Made It told MTV.

The super producer, real name Mike Williams, who’s behind Cyrus’ latest hit, “We Can’t Stop,” told Rap Fix that he, West and Cyrus went right to the studio following Cyrus’ twerk-filled performance at the Video Music Awards.

“We went right back to work,” Williams said, adding of the remix, “It’s about done, just touching the beat up a little bit. It sound crazy too.”

Williams even relayed West’s own reaction to Cyrus’ VMA performance, saying the rapper “told her that she did right, too. ‘Ye is somebody who understands it. I think people that understand it aren’t gonna really have anything too negative, or too much to say about the performance.”

Along with “We Can’t Stop,” Williams acted as executive producer for Cyrus’ upcoming album, Bangerz(out October 8th), and just had the singer spit a few rhymes on “23,” a new cut with Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa from the producer’s upcoming solo project.
