Was Shawn Mendes once considered for Miley Cyrus' "Prisoner" before the star snagged Dua Lipa? Maybe.

On Wednesday (March 3), Stan Twitter went into overdrive when a demo of Mendes' version of the angsty pop track made the rounds. The version has since been removed from YouTube, but a clip of the track is still on the platform and hears the Canadian star offer his take on the Andrew Watt and the Monsters & Strangerz.-produced cut with tweaked lyrics. "Prisoner, prisoner/ Locked up you got me day and night (day and night)/ Lord knows I'm here to satisfy," he sings on the hook.

"Prisoner" served as the follow-up single to Cyrus' smash, "Midnight Sky," off Plastic Hearts. While the Mendes-featured version of the song was never released, fans do have the pair's on-stage collaboration at the 2019 Grammy Awards when they offered up a performance of "In My Blood" at the ceremony.
