"Gonna Get This" is a pop song by American singer-songwriter and actress Miley Cyrus, performing as Hannah Montana – the alter ego of Miley Stewart – a character she plays on the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana. It also features vocals from R&B singer Iyaz. It was released to Radio Disney on September 24, 2010 as promotion for the fourth season of Hannah Montana. The song is musically dance-pop based. The song was later released on October 5, 2010 through iTunes as a promotional single from the soundtrack of the same title as the special title (Hannah Montana Forever) of the fourth and final season of the series.
