9. PUTTING THE “BACK” IN SEXYBACK
WHEN: July 2006

Never let it be said that Timbaland is anything other than a twerking proponent! Earlier, we featured a bit on his 2001 collaboration with Bubba Sparxxx on “Twerk A Little,” and on Justin Timberlake‘s (still!) ubiquitous smash “Sexyback,” Mr. Mosley commands Ladies Everywhere to “Let me see what you’re twerkin’ with.” GO AHEAD BE GONE WITH IT! (Also, for what it’s worth, “Sexyback” was the first song that mentioned “twerking” to top Billboard’s Hot 100 charts.)
