How Miley Cyrus Set Up Her Duet With Shawn Mendes

How did Miley Cyrus set up her duet with Shawn Mendes? She slid into his DMs.

“I actually sent him a DM,” Cyrus told Variety’s Marc Malkin. “And said ‘I don’t know what you’re trying to do next next.’ Because I’ve been in his position in his career too before. Where you’re someone that’s trying to fit into pop music, you want to be playing on pop radio but you don’t want to be conformist.”

Celebrating country legend Dolly Parton at the annual MusiCares dinner, Cyrus and Mendes collaborated on the classic “Islands in the Stream” Parton song as tribute. But that’s not the only duet Cyrus and Mendes are working on, rumors have it the two have another collaboration in the works.

As for her thoughts on Ariana Grande’s Grammy clap back, Cyrus had a quick response,”Do you girl. As long as you do you, and I do me we’ll be good.”
