With Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda” leading the pack, the remix of Jennifer Lopez‘s “Booty” is bringing up the ever-important rear of what historians may very well remember as the Summer of the Behind. While J.Lo initially released the track with a guest verse from Pitbull, the updated version of “Booty” features a new verse from Iggy Azalea, Rap-Up reports.

Produced by Diplo, “Booty” boasts a quick-clapping dancefloor beat and a serpentine synth line over which Lopez pays tribute — Tina Belcher-style — to the hypnotic power of the butt. Azalea storms over the beat as well proclaiming, “The last time the world seen a booty this good, it was on Jenny from the block.”

Lopez and Azalea reportedly shot a video for the track with director Hype Williams over the weekend, as well. And to answer any questions regarding the content of the clip, Lopez told Power 106: “It’s a lot of booty.”

“Booty” appears on Lopez’s most recent album, A.K.A, which came out in June and marks her first solo effort since 2011’s Love?. As for Azalea, she’s been on a tear this summer thanks to her chart-topping hit “Fancy,” off her LP, The New Classic. Azalea was on hand at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday where she performed “Black Widow” with Rita Ora and was introduced by J. Lo, who teased not only the “Booty” remix, but noted that she’d worked with the Aussie rapper on a handful of other cuts, as well.
