It’s a good day for us all, but not for Miley!
Miley Cyrus and Blink-182’s secret collaboration “I Really Wish I Hated You” song was leaked online.
The collaboration was originally for Blink-182 eighth studio album, NINE (how cute), and was ultimately released without her featured vocals. When a portion of the song was leaked to an Italian Blink-182 fan site, fans speculated that it was fake or that her vocals were added to the band’s previously recorded track.
But hold your horses, Blink-182 member Mark Hoppus revealed on a Twitch stream on April 12th that the collaboration was in fact real.
When a fan questioned Hoppus about the authenticity of the collaboration (“Did it leak?”) Hoppus says.
“I don’t know what the story is with… well, I know exactly what the story is with the Miley Cyrus version of ‘I Really Wish I Hated You,’ but I did not realize that it was in the world,” he told viewers. “So I’m trying to find out answers.”

This is incredible. Apparently, there is a version of I Really Wish I Hated You with Miley Cyrus of all people sharing vocal duties. This requires further explanation. Some of you might remember that in several interviews blink-182 stated that this song was the hardest one to complete on NINE and went through about five different iterations. It is possible that at a certain point during the recording process Miley Cyrus was involved in some capacity. In fact, this song was produced by Andrew Watt and Ali Tamposi, two household names in the pop scene who are behind some of the top hits you hear on the radio everyday and who have reportedly collaborated with Miley Cyrus on her upcoming album. That being said, it is hard to determine whether blink-182 actually considered having Miley Cyrus as a guest vocalist on a track or this snippet is fake in the sense that Watt and Tamposi initially brought the idea for I Really Wish I Hated You to Miley Cyrus and only later to blink-182 and this is just Miley's demo layered on blink's song. #blink182 #blink182italia
