Gwen Stefani originally discussed for duet with Miley Cyrus on ‘SMS’
Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears have collaborated on ‘SMS’ which is taken from Cyrus’ new number 1 album ‘Bangerz’.
Apparently though Britney Spears wasn’t the first singer that sprung to everyones mind when Cyrus and her team were deciding on who should collaborate with the 20 year old.
Sean Garrett is Miley Cyrus’ producer and has spoken with MTV News saying that Britney Spears wasn’t the first option to appear on ‘SMS’ and in fact they had discussed another big star coming on board.
The team originally wanted No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stafani to collaborate with Miley but things didn’t work out. Speaking with MTV News Garrett said:
“The first name that we tossed around was Gwen Stefani. We were talking about Gwen because you know Gwen got that edge too, but that’s how God works. We were throwing around those ideas.”
In another interview Miley Cyrus had praised Britney Spears and revealed that Spears represented her childhood:
“She’s like an icon in that way and so I wanted to bring her back to that, I just kept telling her, ‘Britney you don’t really realise actually how dope [you are]. People tell me I represent their childhood, for me you represent my entire childhood, like you were the soundtrack to my life’.”
Last night we revealed that Miley Cyrus became the first artist of 2013 to score a double on the official singles and albums chart with her single ‘Wrecking Ball’ and her album ‘Bangerz’.
Last year Olly Murs had the double with his single ‘Troublemaker’ featuring Flo Rida while his album ‘Right Place Right Time’ also went to number 1.
Miley Cyrus has since taken to Twitter about the double number 1:
#1 single & album in the UK ❤️❤️❤️
