Is this the future? Miley Cyrus is stripping down for yet another music video, but this time she’s covering up just a little in metallic body paint. The “Wrecking Ball” singer appears as a naked alien in Future‘s “Real & True” music video. The video isn’t out yet, but three photo stills show a glimpse of what to expect.
Cyrus, 20, collaborated with the 29-year-old rapper on his forthcoming album Honest. In the images, the former Disney star is seen naked, strapped into a metal reclining chair while Future examines her from behind a glass door. In another shot, Cyrus goes face-to-face with Future and appears to be breathing him in. A third behind-the-scenes photo shows Cyrus wearing a green jumpsuit and Future sporting an astronaut’s uniform while looking at video playback.
Cyrus and the “Karate Chop” rapper’s collaboration wasn’t one-sided. Future is also featured on Cyrus’ track “My Darlin'” from her new album, Bangerz.
“We got a lot of great records, and it all came from conversation and having a nice vibe,” Future explained in an interview with MTV. “Whenever she allowed me in her personal life through conversation, I tried to take that vibe and go to the booth. I told her, ‘You’ve gotta embrace your fears. If something’s bothering you, you’ve gotta run toward it. If you’re crying about it, you need to cry till you can’t cry anymore. If you try to hold it back, then it’s gonna eat you up. But if you embrace [it], the music moves.'”
“The songs I did with her [are] very touching,” he added. “Certain days it’s about money, partying and vibing and some days [it’s about needing] somebody to stand by you and hold you down. Certain days you wanna know if the love that you’re with is really true, and one song we got is basically around all those subject matters.”
For the record, Future is taken: the rapper is currently dating another twerk-happy singer, Ciara.
