'Wrecking Ball' songwriter Sacha Skarbeck has confirmed the rumours as true
You know that song that Miley Cyrus sung while swinging on a giant steel ball in her birthday suit?
Well, as it turns out, “Wrecking Ball” was originally intended for Beyoncé’s repertoire.
One of the songwriters, Sacha Skarbeck, tweeted than an unnamed track had been given to the former Disney star in 2012, sparking widespread speculation.
But now, she has revealed more about the mystery single. Skarbeck’s representative told Radar: ““Wrecking Ball” was not written for Beyoncé. Originally, the (song-writing session between Dr Luke and Sacha) was booked to write a song for Beyoncé.
“But as the song progressed, the songwriters realised the song would not work for her.”

Cyrus released “Wrecking Ball” and its accompanying controversial music video (the one with the hammer-licking) in September last year.
It went on to top the US and UK singles charts ahead of her fourth studio album Bangerz.
The shocking video for “Wrecking Ball” was rapidly went viral, amassing 19 million views in just 24 hours.
Yesterday, Cyrus hit out at “liar” publications claiming she had criticised Beyoncé in an interview. The circulating quotes hear the pop star deign that her “Drunk In Love” music rival has been “out for such a long time”.
“I got the total package you know, the curves, the rhythm, and the voice. I’m just the best,” she was falsely credited as saying.
Cyrus soon wrote a tweet explaining the “nightmare” situation.

“How are people allowed to make up s**t and then out quotes around it saying I said that s**t!” she added. “U can cause ALOT of drama but NOT between me and B!”
