Bad Boy Records' French Montana recently talked about the love he has for Miley Cyrus and how they managed to hook-up for their joint "FU" track.
According to Montana, he linked up with the infectious twerker while recently out in California.
"Oh man, I was in L.A. and she happened to be doing the 'Ain't Worried About Nothing' remix for me and she came by the studio," he recalled. "She was letting me hear her album, which is crazy, and we was going through a couple tracks to see which one I fit on." He continued, "Then she played the 'FU' one and I fell in love with it. We just went in there, we did it. We did it together. She kind of showed me the ideas of the video, how she wanted to shoot the video and everything. I fell in love with that record. She's a genius."

The New York rapper also bigged up how proud he is to see Miley using her talent with an arrary of different musicians as of late.
"Man, I just feel like if you really chill with her and really get to know her she's totally different from what you expect," he said. "She like to have fun; she cool. She's positive and she's a genius with music. A lot of people don't know that about her. She's hands-on with it. I'm in the booth and she's telling me to 'Do it like this, do it like that; I like this, I like that'." He added that when fans do finally hear "FU," they just might be surprised. "I just feel like it's a great marriage, either way," he said. "Everybody she doing music with, it's a great thing." (MTV)

Back in April, French gushed over his bond with the 20-year-old actress/singer.
"That's my dog. That's my peoples. We became friends at the Clive Davis Grammy party. I was sitting there with Puff. She was sitting there with Wiz [Khalifa]. She just kept looking at me laughing, I kept on looking at her laughing. I said, "What you laughing at?" She said, "I know you high like me." After that, we became mad cool. I went over to the studio, just kicking it -- Yeah. We working on something now. That's just cool peoples." (MTV Hive)
