Sir Mix-A-Lot took his classic “Baby Got Back” to the Benaroya Hall in Seattle last night (Jun. 7), where he performed the song backed by a full orchestra. Yes, a violins and cellos-type orchestra. And what made it better? About 40 women rushing the stage to twerk along.

In conjunction with The Sonic Evolution project, the Seattle Symphony works with music artists who are natives of the city to create pieces to accompany their hits. They also performed “Dial 1-900 Mix-A-Lot” and “Posse On Broadway.”

Watch this rather entertaining new take on an old school jam in the video above.
