Miley Cyrus famously name checked Jay Z on 2009 pop hit “Party In The U.S.A.” It took four years but Hov finally returned the favor on Magna Carta Holy Grail highlight “Somewhereinamerica”. He even mentions her favorite hobby, rapping: “somewhere in America Miley Cyrus is still twerkin’.” So how did this honor sit with the “We Can’t Stop” diva?

Well, in an interview with MTV UK she says it was fun. “Pharrell had actually hit me [up], he was like ‘Jay Z wants to call you and tell you that he’s shouting you out in the song tomorrow’,” she explains. “I was in Miami and was doing crazy press for my record. We got to go out and hear it in a club. It was fun.” Fun? She sounds really excited.
