New Music: Justin Bieber f/ Miley Cyrus – ‘Twerk’

Twerk

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.

    But … “twerking” has been around since forever. I don’t understand why it’s all of a sudden the “it” thing. Smh, suburbia.

    @Realistically, exactly! Usher had a song on 8701 called “Twerk it out” and Destiny’s Child had a song left over from the “Survivor” sessions called “Twirk”. Twerking has been around forever. But white people didn’t know what it was.

    @TrinaFan, yes, because the colour of your skin determines how much knowledge you have.

    This is produced garbage. Actually this is the worst song ever to be heard. All I can say that this was hell to my ears.
    A collaboration of two awful artists wouldn’t be better, already expected.

    Hey, if this is what it takes to get more white girls to twerk, I’m all in. Not all white girls are as boney as Miley.

  29. TheRaceRace

    Why’s it always gotta come down to race? Everything that’s popular now has been around at some different point. This shouldn’t be about white or black people doing something first because all races have repeated the same things over and over again and made those same things popular for their generation. So, if twerking is “the new it thing”, let it run it’s run.

    Honestly, it’s okay. But I wish the hook, Miley sang, was more… different.
    But these are like the annoying, bad, poor imitation of Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minaj & Drake. I’m a Barbz, but these pop stars need to stop dabbing their feet with HipHop too far.

  47. What is this?

    She needs to check her privilege. She’s trying too hard when it comes to everything. It’s not genuine at all and it’s insulting to black urban culture because it’s obvious she’s trying to profit off of it with her image and the people she hangs around.

    This shitty song would’ve been way better without miley’s parts i mean what the fuck was that it’s not even singing, anyone could sound that bad.

    ….. Twerking has been around forever in the black community. Caucasian people do it and now it’s mainstream?! Screw that.

    [Reply]

  52. Garbage

    Miley sounds like complete trash. she is trying to rap but she is just horrible. when she “raps” she still got her country accent. all these fucking white singers want to rap now because rap n hiphop music is now popular but what makes it popular is really who the artist is not just what the genera is. if Miley and Justin really want to rap, well then, they should make them damn kidzbop cds full of already popular rap/hiphop songs. they are still kids to the media anyway
