Twerking has officially gone mainstream. Hot on the heels of her provocative VMA performance, Miley Cyrus keeps it moving on “Twerk,” her collaboration with Justin Bieber. The 20-year-old singer twerks and turns up all over the Maejor Ali and Chef Tone production, while Bieber tosses out hip-hop slang.
Lil Twist previously announced that the song would be his new single, but he does not appear on this version.
Earlier this week, Oxford officially added “twerk” to the dictionary, defining it as “to dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.”
Has the twerking phenomenon gone too far? Listen and weigh in below.
UPDATE: You can now stream the official version with Lil Twist.
