近些年来，或许经常出没于国内各大HipHop Club的你会发现，那些曾经只能在欧美舞曲MV中的看到的“电臀舞”，已经有许多热爱嘻哈文化的女孩把这种舞蹈带进了HipHop Club，这种舞蹈还有一个更专业的名称叫做：Twerk。
In recent years, you may notice people are doing twerk dance in clubs, which once only in the European and American dance music video was seen, it has been brought into Hip-Hop clubs by those girls who love hip-hop cultures.
20世纪80年代末期，Twerk这个词起源于美国新奥尔良的嘻哈街头文化。同一时期，通过与美国HipHop Dirty South音乐结合，并通过主流HipHop视频来传播，2000年代中期在世界Youtube网站大放异彩，成为欧美大蜜们追捧的一种舞蹈形式。
In the late 1980s, the word TWERK came out of the hip-hop street culture of New Orleans, USA. At the same time, it became a popular dance style in Europe and the United States by combining with American Hip-Hop Dirty South music and spreading through mainstream hip-hop videos in the mid-2000s, making a splash on Youtube sites around the world.
跳Twerk的女孩们会採用深蹲和抖动臀部的舞蹈方式伴随着音乐，将HipHop音乐里活力十足、自由不羁的态度表现得淋漓尽致，从而点燃整场派对的氛围，让在场的所有人都能感受到HipHop音乐与舞蹈的魅力。无可否认，能带动人们跳舞才是派对音乐的本质。因此，硬派娱乐旗下非裔美籍Rapper — RAXX$ AFRO与乌克兰的全能音乐人BAD DZ双双联动推出的全新HipHop舞曲《WORK》。
The girls that twerk will move by shaking or thrusting their hips back or shaking their buttocks, often in a low squatting stance to express the energetic and free attitude of hip-hop music to the fullest, thus igniting the atmosphere of the whole party and allowing everyone to feel the charm of HipHop music and dance.
There is no denying that the essence of party music is to drive people to dance. Therefore, IMPACT's African-American Rapper - RAXX$ AFRO and Ukrainian multi-talented musician BAD DZ released their new song WORK. “The song was inspired by Rihanna as she’s an amazing beautiful twerk dancer which in this generation can be referred to as work, so this is for all the party animals，hope they can feel the vibe。” RAXX$ said.
