Just when you finally got it out of your head, Miley Cyrus’ hit song Party in the U.S.A. is making headlines again.

Singer and songwriter Jessie J told Glamour UK that she cashed out big by writing the 2009 jam with Dr. Luke and Claude Kelly. “Party in the USA paid my rent for, like, three years,” she said. “Actually it was longer than that. That’s where I get most of my money. I write songs. I’m a singer. I love doing endorsements and stuff, but that’s all added on.”

The song went on to become seven-times platinum.
