In a new interview with songwriter Sean Garrett (whom worked with Gwen on “Now That You Got It”), he revealed to MTV News that Gwen was considered to be asked to collaborate with Miley Cyrus on her new track “SMS (Bangerz)” (which features Britney Spears).
Garrett mentioned that Gwen was one of the first names to be brought up as a collaborator (as well as Nicki Minaj) saying because she “got that edge”. But will there be a remix coming soon that we can look forward to? MTV hints to it but Garrett wouldn’t commit or comment on it by not saying anything more than “yeah, yeah”.
MTV — When Miley Cyrus decided to collaborate with Britney Spears on her Bangerz album, the goal was bigger than merely pairing the new pop-queen with her idol. But as songwriter Sean Garrett tells MTV News, they had a few more ladies in mind for “SMS (Bangerz)”.
“SMS” stands for “strutting my stuff,” and on the 1980s hip-hop-inspired track, Miley and Britney do just that. Although singers like Gwen Stefani and Nicki Minaj didn’t make it to the track, maybe a remix is on the way.
“The first name that we tossed around was Gwen Sefani. We were talking about Gwen because you know Gwen got that edge too, but that’s how God works. We were throwing around those ideas,” Garrett said on Wednesday (October 9) about the song he helped pen with Mike Will Made It.
Still, Garrett wouldn’t all the way commit to the idea of a “SMS” remix featuring Miley, Britney, Gwen and Nicki. Instead, he just laughed and subtly championed the idea. “Yeah, yeah,” he said with a wide smile.
