Everyone’s talking about Rihanna’s new music video for “Pour It Up.” Mainly the chatter is about RiRi and all the half-naked strippers sliding up and down the pole. But when we saw Rihanna straddling a throne amidst a throng of glittering strippers, we couldn’t help but be reminded of Nicki Minaj dropping it like it’s hot in a chair of her own in Nelly’s “Get Like Me” video. So we had to ask, who’s p-poppin’ reigns supreme? Don’t make your decision lightly. Check out the two clips and let these gifs be your guide:
In the battle of the traditional twerk method, we’re going to have to give this one to Nicki. Sure, you have a clearer visual of cheek clapping in Rihanna’s, but her legs are clearly being supported by the arms of the throne. Nicki however is relying on nothing more than some killer quad power as she balances atop her stiletto boots. Point goes to Miss Minaj.
In this second match up, we give the ladies some room to freestyle. Nicki sticks to a crisp twist and twerk with a front-to-side head snap (technical terms), while Rihanna throws down the gauntlet with a reverse move. All points to RiRi for creativity and airing out her lady bits with zero shame. Did you know you could twerk a vagina? I didn’t. Nicole ‘The Pole’ Williams taught her well.
Your turn! Evaluate the moves and tell us who twerked the best!
