The video features male background dancers twerking in a nightclub with Fly Young Red and his friends watching on the other side of the bar drinking and complimenting the male dancers. [2] The video was filmed in Club XL in Houston. [3] Fly Young Red selected "Throw That Boy Pussy" as his first video release after observing view counts on some pre-release previews of songs from his album. [4]

Critical reception

The provocative lyrics have sparked debate over such social and sexual issues as creative freedom, sexism, and black gay culture. [1] [5] Darnell Moore has described the song as "honest, but not transformative", while Wade Davis has called it "revolutionary". [5] It also plagued controversy within the African American and hip hop community as the references to the song are not mainly what are associated with the culture. [6]

Gawker describes the song as "the new What What (In the Butt)", and says the song is destined to be a classic, [7] while Dan Savage has referred to it as an "anthem". [8]

Gay anthem Term for a song that has become popular among the gay community

A gay anthem is a popular song that has become widely popular among, or has become identified with, the gay community, particularly gay men, although some of these songs may also become anthems for the rest of the LGBT community. Multiple top-charting popular songs, such as "I Think I'm in Love with You" by Jessica Simpson, "True Colors" by Cyndi Lauper, "For Once in My Life" by Mel B, "Raise Your Glass" by Pink and "We R Who We R" by Kesha have become a "refuge of unambiguous support for gay rights". Not all songs labelled as "gay anthems" were written with that purpose, but they are included in this subgenre of popular music if they have become particularly popular among the gay community.

Twerking is a type of dance that came out of the bounce music scene of New Orleans in the late 1980s.
