The new Beyoncé album Cowboy Carter features several interesting collaborations — among them, a moving duet with Miley Cyrus called “II Most Wanted.”

The song is an ode to friendship, with the pair's voices harmonizing effortlessly to sing about being there as an eternal shotgun rider for your ride or die person. On social media, Cyrus wrote about their collaboration and how much she's admired Beyoncé for years.

“I’ve loved Beyoncé since long before I had the opportunity to meet & work with her,” Cyrus wrote on Instagram. “My admiration runs so much deeper now that I’ve created along side of her. Thank you Beyoncé. You’re everything & more. Love you. To everyone who spent time making this song so special thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Iconically, Cyrus and Beyoncé performed together back in 2008 at Condé Nast's Fifth Annual Fashion Rocks event at Radio City Music Hall; Cyrus stood between Bey and Rihanna, and the performance also featured Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Fergie, Carrie Underwood, Leona Lewis, Ciara, Keyshia Cole, Ashanti, Nicole Scherzinger, and Natasha Bedingfield. What a lineup.

“What I remember most from doing this performance is I was standing in between two of the biggest legends and icons that I was looking up to at the time and they treated me like a little sister the entire time,” Cyrus remembered during her “Used to Be Young" TikTok series last year. "They were being really sweet."
