Kreayshawn pays a rowdy, wobbly tribute to booty shakin' on her new track "Twerkin!!!" Over a swirling beat that morphs with intensity, the Bay Area MC defiantly weaves her high-pitched flow to describe impressive back-end dance moves. Diplo steps out from behind the decks and into a more active role, smothering the mic for a deadpan motormouth hook, while Sissy Nobby injects hyped up rally cries. "I'm not really concerned with trying to turn haters into believers," Kreayshawn told Rolling Stone in May. "I just think it's going to be a fun-ass album for my fans that I have now, and for people who have only heard one song."

"Twerkin!!!" is on Kreayshawn's upcoming debut album, Somethin 'Bout Kreay, out September 18th. Preorder it here.

“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."
