Reggae fusion artist Iyaz from the British Virgin Island is making his film debut with pop singer/actor Miley Cyrus on the popular Disney Channel show “Hannah Montana.”
The episode set to air Oct. 3 at 8 P.M. ET. The show will feature the premiere of new track “Gonna Get This,” a duet between the “Replay” singer and star Miley Cyrus.
According to Billboard Iyaz said, “I’ve been watching the show for a very long time, and finally got the opportunity to do a song with Miley,” says the 23-year-old singer. “[The song] definitely has some edge to it. She did her thing and I put my little island twist on it.”
Iyaz plays himself in the episode and helps Cyrus’ character overcome a case of writer’s block. Although the singer arrived at the show’s set last spring not knowing what to expect, he says that the “Hannah Montana” crew “treated me like family… it was a lot of fun, and definitely a lifetime experience.”
