This would’ve been HUGE.

Madonna has never been shy of expressing her love for pop music’s wild child Miley Cyrus, having praised her in interviews, posed for photos with her on several occasions, and even performed with her for MTV Unplugged.

With references to some of Madonna’s biggest hits, and a chorus featuring lyrics like “Strike a pose like Madonna” and “I don’t give a… like Madonna,” this could’ve been an iconic collaboration.
