Miley Cyrus is giving Beyoncé her "flowers."

On Friday, the 32-time Grammy winner, 42, released her new album Cowboy Carter — which features a surprise duet with the "Adore You" singer titled "II Most Wanted" — and Cyrus posted to Instagram to show her love for Beyoncé.

"II Most Wanted is out now on the new @Beyonce album #CowboyCarter," she captioned a post which featured the Cowboy Carter album art. "I’ve loved Beyonce since long before I had the opportunity to meet & work with her."

Cyrus, 31, continued: "My admiration runs so much deeper now that I’ve created along side of her. Thank you Beyonce. You’re everything & more. Love you. To everyone who spent time making this song so special thank you from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely , Miley."

"II Most Wanted" is a stunning duet that details the devotion between two people in a long-term relationship over a chord progression that appears to interpolate the 1975 Fleetwood Mac classic "Landslide."

Cyrus kicks off the track singing, “Know we’re jumpin’ the gun, but we’re both still young / One day, we won’t be / Didn’t know what I want ’til I saw your face / Say goodbye to the old me."

The pair then trade off on the verses, "Came out of nowhere, didn't give no warnin' / Pedal so heavy, like the two most wanted / And I don't know what you're doin' tonight But I."

Finally on the chorus, they join forces and sweetly harmonize: "I'll be your shotgun rider 'til the day I die / Smoke out the window, flyin' down the 405 / I'll be your backseat baby, drivin' you crazy / Anytime you like (Woah) / I'll be your shotgun rider 'til the day I 'Til the day I die."
