At around 4AM on October 9th 2013, Los Angeles DJ Djemba Djemba unleashed this reggeton twerk goliath through a tweet, after posting a series of funny, behind-the-music vines.The song is a remix of “Pon Di Cocky” by Ragge/Dancehall composer Aidonia, and it has also been remixed by Djemba Djemba’s Mad Decent label mates Major Lazer. Little has been published about the original version of “Pon Di Cocky,” but Djemba Djemba’s emotional 4AM Vine Twerk Edit has been keeping me dancing all day.
Additional Bonus: towards the end of the songs twerk-pocolypse, the melody really starts to really shine by way of orchestral-flute-feeling-synths. You can enjoy a free download of the song here.
