The "Malibu" songbird somewhat hinted at the possibility of teaming up with the "Lost in Japan" singer-songwriter for a future project, likely for her new album.
On Thursday (January 10), Cyrus appeared to confirm the whispers by commenting on an Instagram post shared by a fandom account insinuating the musicians were creating something together for her upcoming seventh LP. "According to some rumors, Shawn Mendes will be part of Miley's new album. I am Mendes Army and it would be one of my biggest dreams come true," the caption read, to which the 26-year-old responded with a "like" and a heart emoji beneath the post.
Thankfully, fans captured the proof via screenshot. See the evidence below.
Last year saw Cyrus' return to the studio since she dropped Younger Now (2017).
Throughout 2018, she featured on Elton John's tribute album with her rendition of "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" in April, marked the premiere of her latest collab, "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart," with producer Mark Ronson in late-November and tracked the record by covering John Lennon's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" with Ronson and Sean Ono Lennon in December.
As far as we know, the pop star has already made headway on her new era, slated for 2019 release. "I'm already working on the next one," Cyrus told BBC Radio 1 in 2017. "I'm already two songs deep on the next one."
Albeit unconfirmed, it's been rumored her new work will bear the same hip-hop sound as her 2013 success Bangerz, but also blend heavy pop elements as well.
