Background Edit

During the production of "23", Mike Will Made It prepared a verse for himself to rap, which he originally planned to include alongside verses by Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa. However, after the latter two finished their respective recordings, Mike Will Made It decided that his contribution should be replaced by a woman. Mike Will Made It had recently finished producing Miley Cyrus' track "We Can't Stop" for her fourth studio album Bangerz (2013) when she first heard "23" and expressed interest in being included on the track. Mike Will Made It was initially hesitant of her suggestion, having met her earlier that day, although he "left her on there" after "she laid down the verse [and] killed it."

"23" is a synth-driven hip hop song set to a midtempo beat and contains elements of bass. and is distinguished in Cyrus' catalog as the first track in which she raps. In the chorus, Cyrus mentions recreational drug use, particularly in the line "I’m in the club high off purp with some shades on". The track later transitions into the repeated hook "J's on my feet" delivered by Juicy J, which references Air Jordan sneakers.

In the United States, "23" entered the Billboard Hot 100 at number 70, and later peaked at number 11.

It additionally peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs component chart.

LyricsEdit

[Hook: Miley Cyrus]
 I'm in the club high off purp with some shades on
 Tatted up, mini skirt with my J's on

[Juicy J x2]
 J's on my feet
 J's on my feet
 J's on my feet
 So get like me

[Verse 1: Miley Cyrus]
 I be in the club standing on the couch
 In them Wolf Greys like it's my house
 Drinking out the bottle, I got no respect
 Looking like a model, who just got a check
 I back it up, cause I don't give a damn
 If you're a lame, that's a shame you can't hang with us
 I'm MC Hammer fly, you can't touch
 J's so fly I should work at Flight Club

[Bridge: Miley Cyrus]
 Put on my J's and dance the whole night away
 I'm naughty by nature like I'm hip-hop hooray
 With my hands in the sky, I wave 'em from side to side
 My feet on the floor, I'm about to turn up now

[Hook: Miley Cyrus]
 I'm in the club high off purp with some shades on
 Tatted up, mini skirt with my J's on

[Verse 2: Wiz Khalifa]
 I be rockin' J's or
 I be rockin' Taylors
 I got lots of flavors, my kick game is major
 More kicks than the players, call me up I'm scorin'
 Hit it like a free throw, tongue out like I'm Jordan
 Smiley, Miley, come swing the thing right by me
 Gotta a joint if you wanna get stoned, got choppers if they wanna try me
 Pro athlete I'm not no wannabe
 Waitress asked how many bottles? I said 23

[Bridge: Miley Cyrus]
 Put on my J's and dance the whole night away
 I'm naughty by nature like I'm hip-hop hooray
 With my hands in the sky, I wave 'em from side to side
 My feet on the floor, I'm 'bout to turn up now

[Hook: Miley Cyrus]
 I'm in the club high off purp with some shades on
 Tatted up, mini skirt with my J's on

[Verse 3: Juicy J]
 I stay showin' out, my kick game is a beast
 I got thirty pair of J's that ain't never been released
 Flu game twelve, Space Jam 11
 On the hype beast sick, they gon' need a paramedic
 Turn up, turn up, turn up, I get trippy, I stay live
 All this purple in my cup, match them grape 5's
 I'm so high, I got three bitches that go bi
 I'm so fly, I'm gettin' head like a blow dryer

[Bridge: Miley Cyrus]
 Put on my J's and dance the whole night away
 I'm naughty by nature like I'm hip-hop hooray
 With my hands in the sky, I wave 'em from side to side
 My feet on the floor, I'm 'bout to turn up now

[Hook: Miley Cyrus]
 I'm in the club high off purp with some shades on
 Tatted up, mini skirt with my J's on......chu
