One Direction Twerk To Drake’s “The Motto”: Watch

Now this is Total Request Live: During Friday’s concert in Miami, One Direction was answering fan questions on Twitter when the group received an unusual request — “twerk team.” While the UK boy band were admittedly a little clueless, they did know which song would be fitting for the occasion.

While Niall Horan and Harry Styles quickly leaped into action, the other members decided that they required a little bit of assistance. Horan pulled up an instructional video on YouTube (“This looks long,” Louis Tomlinson said), while Liam Payne requested Drake‘s “The Motto” be played by 1D’s backing band. Payne rapped Drake’s lyrics, as the rest of the group lined the platform and, well, tried. Watch the clip up top.

1D, in case you’re tasked with twerking again, take note from Miley Cyrus. Or, watch the whole video — “How to Twerk,” right? Nice song choice, though.
