"SWERLK is about celebrating life, dancing, individuality, differences, fierceness," MNDR says of her new Scissor Sisters-assisted single. "And sometimes SWERLK is even a shoulder to cry on."
Their new charity collaboration, "SWERLK"—a combination of twerk, twirl, werk, swerve and swirl—proposes a new queer dance, while also raising funds for the Contigo Fund to empower Latinx communities in honor of Pulse. "The SWERLK is not only a dance floor anthem, but it is a way of life, a mind set, and a show of solidarity," MNDR says, paying tribute to the Orlando shooting's one-year anniversary this week.
The official "SWERLK" video, premiering today on OUT, features three dancers—Brad, Jackie and Evan—who're shown working through the campy, prideful choreography in a classic how-to format. "Work it if you got the nerve," MNDR sings with Scissor Sisters, as the dancers show viewers how to swirl it, twirl it, twerk it and swerve.
"We wanted to make a SWERLK dance so everyone could SWERLK," MNDR says. "We reached out to our friend Brad Landers ('Let's have a KiKi' choreographer) and he came up with the perfect dance that everyone can get down with. Let's see you SWERLK. Upload your videos using the hashtag #SWERLK."
