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 on purp with some shades on
Tatted up, mini skirt with my J's on

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

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 fuck
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 ’bout to turn up now

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

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

J’s on my feet
J’s on my feet
J’s on my feet
So get like me

[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 on purp with some shades on
Tatted up, mini skirt with my J's on

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

J’s on my feet
J’s on my feet
J’s on my feet
So get like me

[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 on purp with some shades on
Tatted up, mini skirt with my J's on

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

J’s on my feet
J’s on my feet
J’s on my feet
So get like me
