Miley Cyrus, Snoop Lion team up for 'Ashtrays and Heartbreaks'

In what might have been considered an unlikely collaboration once upon a time, Miley Cyrus and Snoop Lion have made sweet music together.

Thanks to Snoop’s “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks,” which hit the Web this week, we got a taste of the “really different sound” that Cyrus teased back in November.

The former “Hannah Montana” star sings the hook on the pop-tinged reggae track, with lines like, “can't let them see me weak I need to pause on it/Is there any possibility that everyone feels like me?”

The single will appear on Snoop’s “Reincarnated,” due out on April 23.

In March, Cyrus told Ryan Seacrest that she was working with Snoop, saying, “I can finally say I’m going to have a song with Snoop coming very soon.”

And “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” isn’t the duo’s only collaboration.

“I want this record to be … different, and a bunch of passion projects. [At first] I wouldn’t have calculated like, ‘Oh the first song I want to come out is me and Snoop Dogg,’ ” Cyrus told Seacrest. “I thought it would be my single first, but I’ve just been able to do these things where I’ve just been in the studio at the right time and these projects have just magically happened.”

    Miley should huff some gas too for more street cred.

    I like magic tricks. I like how some entertainers literally pull a career out of their as$es, to the amazement of everyone.

  7. Impartial opinion

    Miley Cyrus' roots are showing, and Snoop's big grey streak makes him look like an aged Rastafarian burnout: "Weed, weed...must have weed...Oh, by the way, legalize it." Can't these rich celebrities afford decent hairdressers?

    I like it! Don't understand all the haters – practicing bullying techniques? One would think CNN readers would be more mature but I guess that would be wrong!

    Snoop with dreads & a giant knit hackey-sac looking cap would look cool on a bottle of Red Stripe though. I would still never drink that horrible shlt again, but it would look cool.

    I've only heard one Snoop Lion song, & it actually made me appreciate rap. Now, raggae must die

    I once heard a horrible sound. It sounded like a goose honking as it was being strangled. Turned out it was just Miley singing.

  15. I wish I could put little cartoon

    speech and thought balloons in the article photos. I'd put a speech balloon over Miley saying, playfully: "Heeeey, Snoopy - howzit hangin'?" The thought balloon over Snoop would say: "Yeah, I'd tap that agin."

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and assume this track and album will be pretty freakin' terrible.

    Poor Snoopy. That beaver teeth girl may chew right through him. She has scary teeth.

    • oh now don't fret...

      the wires are coming off soon and all will be bleached-until then there is a technique with braces that will not affect snoop in the least.

  18. Now that he goes by Snoop Lion...

    does that me he no longer sings "Who Am I (What's My Name)?" at his concerts? I don't know how he could change the lyrics from dogg to lion in that song and not have it suck. That's too bad that was my favorite song. Change yo name back, Dawg!
