The twerking is not over yet: Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber teamed up with Lil Twist for a new song called "Twerk" that has leaked online. The song comes days after Cyrus' racy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, where she demonstrated her twerk technique on a medley with Robin Thicke of her song "We Can't Stop" and his "Blurred Lines."

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
