Watch Jennifer Lopez Turn ‘Baby Got Back’ Into Timeless Poetry

You've never heard Sir Mix-A-Lot like this

You may have tried to grind to Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” in middle school, but you’ve never heard it like this before.

In a new clip for W, actress and singer Jennifer Lopez -- the magazine's May cover star -- performs a dramatic reading of the song's lyrics.

As far as monologues go, it might not quite hold up to J.Lo’s work in Maid in Manhattan, but as far as cold readings go, it’s pretty good. If we were ever going to put together a Hamilton-style hip-hop musical about the trials and tribulations of loving big butts, we know who we’d want as our creative director.

Watch Lopez lend some drama to Mix-A-Lot’s timeless poetry above.
