Move over Miley, Jennifer Lopez is about to school everyone on how to twerk.

The Nuyorican star released a teaser for her upcoming album on Friday, which featured J.Lo shaking her most famous asset to the tune of her new single “Booty.”

The clip may be just over a minute-long but it’s accumulated over 1.2 million views on YouTube in a little over 3 days. At the end of the video, the cover of the singer’s upcoming studio album A.K.A., set to debut on June 17, flashes on the screen.

In May, Lopez, 44, told Angie Martinez of New York’s Hot 97 that that her song “Big Booty” -- the track is now listed on the album as “Booty feat. Pitbull” -- was a collaboration with DJ Diplo that she had been hesitant to put on the album at first.

“I heard it and I was like there’s no way in the world that I will ever have a song called ‘Big Booty’... it’s just that I felt like it would be a joke, you know what I mean? And I didn’t want that for this album, this was an important album to me. I was a serious artist!” Lopez said with a laugh.

“And then I played it in the car... and my twins were in the car and they went nuts, they went nuts for the song! It was a first listen, the minute if came on,” Lopez continued. “And I was like, ‘I have to put this damn song on the album’.”

With nothing but some back-up dancers, mirrors and an empty lot -- J.Lo tells the camera, “Let me show you how to do it” and then begins to show her twerking skills.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Lopez, who has been jet-setting across the globe for several different events.

In early June, the star returned to the Bronx for a special free concert in her hometown. Later, the singer stopped by The Tonight Show to scare the “tight pants” off Jimmy Fallon before heading to Brazil to perform “We Are One (Ole Ola) alongside Pitbull at the 2014 World Cup opening ceremony.

The Cuban-American rapper is also set to be a part of “Booty.”

“It’s a great song, it’s a fun song and it’s about owning everything about you and who you are, and embracing that,” Lopez told Martinez.
