The unlikely beef between Miley Cyrus and Sinead O’Connor has reached its natural 21st century conclusion: a mash-up has united the pair in musical matrimony. The two singers caused some hubbub on the Internet last week after O’Connor wrote an open letter to the former Hannah Montana suggesting she rein it in a bit.

Cyrus seemed uninterested in the advice, to say the least; she replied by tweeting some mean jabs at O’Connor and her recent struggles with depression. Needless to say, the artistic beef prompted much blogging and tweeting, as fans of the two artists quickly and vociferously defended their heroes.

Whether you’re on Team Miley or O’Connor, one truth is undeniable: Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” and O’Connor’s Prince-penned ballad, “Nothing Compares 2 U” share a vibe. Both are breakup ballads of a certain tempo, and move along a similar chord progression. Hear for yourself below.
