Songwriter Angela Hunte Talks Working with Miley Cyrus
Last night, The Source Magazine spoke with one of our favorite songwriters, Angela Hunte, on the red carpet for the 2013 SESAC Pop Music Awards at the New York Public Library. Hunte who recently co-wrote Snoop Lion’s “Reincarnated,” and is probably best known for penning Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind,” is always in the studio with the biggest names in music. She told The Source that she recently worked with Jennifer Hudson and Ledisi on their upcoming projects, but the session that most peaked our interest was Miley Cyrus!
“Miley is amazing, she is amazing, she was a sweetheart and super professional. She was a pleasure to work with, I had a ball. We had fun. It wasn’t even like we were working, we were just laughing and having a good time with Diplo and its been fun. I’ve been working a lot with Diplo, that’s my boy,” Hunte told The Source exclusively.
So did Diplo just call you up to jam with Miley?
Angela Hunte: Absolutely, that’s what it is. If he’s doing something or he’s working on something he’s like, “Hey Angela come through I’m working on it” and he was like “I’m getting ready to do a record with Miley, why don’t you come to the studio?”
This new Miley Cyrus album is probably the most anticipated project of the year!
Angela Hunte: Let me tell you something, I heard some of her records and it’s f*cking incredible! I was completely shocked. I can’t believe it and it’s not forced it doesn’t sound like they forced Miley to be this person she’s not, it’s her just with a brand new sound!
The Mike Will Made It produced Miley Cyrus album still does not have a release date, but Hunte is positive the project will blow your mind.

Miley Cyrus & will.i.am Hangout Turns Into Gush Fest
With a brand-new album out Tuesday (April 23), it’s been a pretty exciting day for will.i.am. So the singer/producer decided a laid-back hangout would be the best way to celebrate. And since will’s a fan of the cyber world — his #willpower album is a hashtag, after all — a hangout on Google was a no-brainer.
Britney Spears, Nicole Scherzinger, Miley Cyrus and record exec Jimmy Iovine stopped by to talk about their work on #willpower. And the hangout turned out to be one big gush fest.
The pop princess herself began the chat cameos by talking about “Scream & Shout,” the first single off the album, which dropped a few months early. “I’ve always been a fan of will. I think he gets our generation,” she said. And although will could “not confirm or deny” his executive producing Brit’s eighth album, Spears showed love for his attitude in the studio. “His energy is just electric. He’s a charmer.”
With an LP chock full of quality musicians, the hangout could’ve gone on for hours if his other collaborators were involved. Justin Bieber, Ne-Yo, Rihanna, Chris Brown, David Guetta, Eva Simons and Redfoo also appear on the album, but Miley and Nicole seemed the most excited to share their team-ups.
Scherzinger, who has an undeniably quirky chemistry with the “Far Away From Home” producer, admitted to stalking will back in 2001 and added, “will and god have been the authors of my life.”
But the bragging wasn’t all directed at will. The leather-capped, collar-chain-rocking musician threw all his excitement Miley’s way, giving plenty of teases into her upcoming music.
“This new Miley stuff is so freaking… yo,” will said, speechless at first. “She has redefined everything you thought Miley Cyrus was. … I’m so blessed to have collaborated with her before the world gets melted by her wonderfulness.”
Cyrus was flattered, and echoed his exhilaration. “When will asked me to do this — I promised by fans a record by the beginning of the year and I wasn’t able to do it because I got so obsessed with being in the studio, that I wanted to stay here ’cause it keep getting better — so I wanted my fans to get something knew before I still felt pressured to put my sh– out.”
Miley explained their collabo “Fall Down,” from its orchestral arrangements to its edgier verses to its pop chorus, but will, again, turned his attention to Cyrus’ album. “It feels epic. Like Quincy Jones just sneezed on it,” he said, joking, “You gotta sedate her to pull her out of the studio.”
In the end, after explaining why he going back to going back to school for computer science — “I know I’m going to be doing something different at 58.” — will’s takeaway message about his album was this:
“willpower is the ability to keep your dreams going and withstand any hate because there are people trying to put our down for being unique or an individual or unequal. …#willpower is the ability to stay strong and weather that storm,” he said, reminiscing on his high school days where he was made fun of and looking at today’s online world.
“There’s so much hate. Social is based on comments and replies, not understanding,” will said. ” You have to have some type of willpower to keep you strong. This record is the 15-yearold version of me.”
Going back to school for computer science to prepare himself for what he wants to do when he gets older. “What am I gonna be doin at 58? I’m not gonna be like ‘let’s get it started’ I know I’m going to be doing something different.
Did Snoop Dogg Confirm Miley Cyrus’ Split From Liam Hemsworth?
Are they or aren’t they together?
It’s the perennial question that’s been plaguing Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s embattled engagement for months. But just as the split rumors started settling amid reports that the wedding is still on, Cyrus’ latest musical collaborator, Snoop Dogg — with whom she teamed up for the reggae-tinged track, “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” — has cast more doubt on the couple’s road the altar.
“The ‘Ashtrays and Heartbreaks’ single I have out with Miley Cyrus is doing very well because it’s one of those records that speaks to change, turnaround, ya know, just going through things. And we both just going through something right now,” Snoop explained in a segment on HuffPost Live.
Pray tell, Snoop: What is Cyrus “going through”?
“I can’t speak for her, ya know what I’m saying, but I know that she has a relationship that no longer exists,” he continued. “I know she’s probably in a transformation change with her life, her music [and] her career.”
While Snoop didn’t mention if said relationship was with fiancé Hemsworth — to whom Cyrus has been engaged since June 2012 — the rapper did offer a bit of advice for his music-making colleague during her time of turmoil.
“She’s 20 years old and she’s an awesome artist to work with. She knows what she wants in life,” he said of the former Disney darling. “I feel like maybe this is a time for her to take charge like I’m taking charge.”
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth “Still Engaged” Despite Reports, Says Source
Posted on 04/22/2013 in Media
Despite recently being seen without her engagement ring, Miley Cyrus is “still engaged,” a source tells E! News exclusively.
“They live together; the wedding is not off,” the insider added.
“You can’t postpone a wedding that never had a date in the first place. Their plan all along was to wait a couple of years before even thinking about a date. The People story is ridiculous.”
Cyrus has been sparking talks of a split from Hunger Games beau Liam Hemsworth after numerous outings without her 3.5-carat Neil Lane diamond ring.
The source adds: “She just doesn’t wear it sometimes. People shouldn’t read too much into that.”
A second insider tells E! News that the 20-year-old singer “loves Liam very much” and that the two “are finding things hard right now, but Miley is hopeful it will get worked out.”
Phew, we’re glad to see the pop star is still getting ready to head down the aisle!
