Miley Cyrus Sings “Drugs Rule Everything Around Me” on Her Wu-Tang-Inspired Song “D.R.E.AM.”

Miley Cyrus is back on her music grind with a six-track EP, She Is Coming, her follow-up to her 2017 album Younger Now. The project just released at midnight, but one song is already getting a lot of attention: “D.R.E.A.M.” (Drugs Rule Everything Around Me) featuring Ghostface Killah.

The track is an obvious reference to Wu-Tang Clan’s legendary 1993 hip-hop hit, “C.R.E.AM. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me),” if the title and feature artist didn’t already give that away. Miley even samples “C.R.E.A.M.” on the song. (Wu-Tang originally sampled 1967’s “As Long as I’ve Got You” by The Charmels for their version of the track.)

It’s possible Miley got the group’s blessing if she was able to get the sample cleared and managed to get Wu-Tang member Ghostface Killah to drop a verse in the outro. But considering the amount of backlash Cyrus has received on social media for her take on hip-hop during her Bangerz era, it’s unclear how this collaboration will ride with rap fans.

Possible critics aside, Miley’s take on the Wu-Tang classic is an airy, chilled-out pop tune honoring the singer’s party lifestyle. “Wake up with new tattoos on my body / Drugs rule everything around me,” she sings in part of the chorus.
