Pharrell recruited Miley Cyrus for “Come Get It Bae” off his forthcoming solo album G I R L. Their latest collab uses a playful beat built on handclaps, a lean guitar line and Miley’s “Hey!” yelps, making for a frenetic little bit of future funk. The young singer takes the hook, while Skateboard P half-raps/half-sings through the verses and offers up his own vocals, and while the sex-as-motorcycle metaphor is a little tired, this is that tireless and classic Pharrell sound that was fresh 15 years ago and still powerful today.
To be honest, though, I prefer the duo’s other new collaboration, Buddy‘s “Smoke Signals” — but this is still a worthy addition to their budding partnership. Hear it below, and if you dig it, stream the full album.
