Did Miley Cyrus Drop That Nae Nae? Not Quite, Say We Are Toonz

'We want to do it with her,' the dance's creators told MTV News.

Maybe you caught a clip of Miley Cyrus doing a dance called "the Nae Nae" a couple of weeks ago? Well, MTV News got in touch with We Are Toonz, the hip-hop group responsible for making the Nae Nae go viral in the first place, and they told us that the "Wrecking Ball" singer's technique could use some work.

"I'm glad she's going to go do that," says member Calamar in a new video on TMZ. "She was on twerking, but now she's on the Nae Nae so everybody can do it."

But if she is going to spread the move, made popular by We Are Toonz's 2013 single, "Drop That #NaeNae," she should probably learn to do it right. And the four Georgia natives are here to lend a helping hand.

"We just wanted to make sure she didn't run with it," Calamar told MTV News over the phone on Friday (October 31).

"With the twerking, she didn't really have nobody that really knew how to do it to actually do it with her. But we want to do it with her."

"We're trying to reach out to her so we can work with her, and make sure she got the Nae Nae down pat -- and make sure the fans know it's still We Are Toonz [behind the dance]," he added. "She says she got it from her dancers, and we were like, 'OK, well do the dancers know where they got it from? Do they know who started the whole thing?'"

Miley had originally sourced her discovery of the dance to the L.A. Bakers, the dance troupe who supported the 21-year-old on her recently wrapped Bangerz Tour and appeared in the video for "We Can't Stop."

“My dancers -- the L.A. Bakers -- they taught it to me. They just started doing it, and I was like ‘what is that?’” Miley told Australian morning show "Sunrise" on October 16 before breaking out her own, apparently faulty, take on the Nae Nae.

Like Calamar said, We Are Toonz are totally cool with the Nae Nae blowing up like it has on YouTube and Vine. (I mean, you don't throw a hashtag into your song title if don't want people to see it and spread it on social media.)

And Cyrus is far from the only famous person to catch on: Jennifer Lopez dropped the move in her "I Luh Ya Papi" video, and Fifth Harmony sing "Every day is pay day/ Swipe my card, then I do the Nae Nae" on "Bo$$." 5H even brought the move along with them to their 2014 MTV VMA Pre-Show performance.

"But we have so much other music for the fans to hear," Calamar told MTV News. Like #Radiotoon, the new mixtape he, Crash Bandit, Levi and K.B. released on Halloween.

"I know next year," Calamar closed our interview, "that's going to be We Are Toonz year." Mercer Bears point guard Kevin Canevari is no doubt pleased with this prediction.
