Proving to the world once again that her Disney days are long gone, Miley Cyrus collaborates with Snoop Dogg Lion, on his new single, “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks.”

This is a very unlikely collaboration, though the lyrics and style does reflect Miley’s behavior post-Disney, back in 2011, where a private video was leaked, which revealed her smoking from a bong and giggling, making it clear that she was high on substance, which she later claimed was salvia. The tune begins with Snoop Lion rapping: “Tonight there’s gonna be a lot of smoke in the air,” and Miley’s chorus: “Now my buzz is gone / I need to re-up on reality.”

Very reggae, true to Snoop Dogg’s genre, and much to my surprise, I enjoyed this song. I think part of the reason why I was pleasantly surprised by this track is because it reminded me of the Hannah Montana days. Not to say that this is something Hannah Montana would sing (Disney probably wouldn’t approve), but because it reminded me that Miley does have talent, which is forgotten nowadays that she doesn’t seem to be doing much but being immaturely engaged and dressing risqué. Miley’s portion also had a very Rihanna-esque vibe and it was very subtly catchy. Miley is in fact working on an upcoming album, though not much detail has been released besides her working alongside Pharrell Williams and Dr. Luke.

This song will be a track on Snoop Lion’s forthcoming album, “Reincarnated” which will be released April 23. I believe this will be his first album under his new pseudonym, and the album title also reflects his transformation from Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion, which has to do with his Jamaican roots.

What do you think of this collaboration?
