Imagine if Beyoncé came in like a Wrecking Ball instead ofMiley Cyrus?!
Well it totes could've happened - according to a rep for one of the song's writers, Sacha Skarbek!
The lyricist ignited rumors when he tweeted the following in 2012:
Beyonce song now becoming a Miley Cyrus song?!! Good/bad? I don't know??!!!!Sasha's rep has now confirmed that although the track was created in a session initially set aside for Yoncé, the writers realized Wrecking Ball would work better with another singer - a la Mileybird swooping in to snag it!

The rep explained:
"Wrecking Ball was not written for Beyoncé. Originally, the [songwriting session between Dr. Luke and Sacha] was booked to write a song for Beyoncé. But as the song progressed, the songwriters realized the song would not work for her."Good thing it wasn't Bey's style...
Because when Miley released the song in September 2013 accompanied by her swinging nekkid on a wrecking ball - it surpassed 100 million views in just six days AND topped theBillboard charts!
Guess some things are just meant to
