'Somewhereinamerica,' they're talking about this

Miley Cyrus' twerking skills have gone from Internet infamy to being immortalized on Jay-Z's latest album, "Magna Carta Holy Grail."

In the song "Somewhereinamerica," Jay rhymes, "Feds still lurking/They see I'm still putting work in/Cause somewhere in America/Miley Cyrus is twerkin.'" The industry titan is also heard seemingly encouraging Miley's dance moves with the repeated phrase, "twerk Miley, Miley twerk."

Listeners haven't been sure whether Hov is poking fun, providing social commentary, revealing himself to be a fan of the singer's dancing, or all of the above.

Cyrus, meanwhile, has fired off a cryptic tweet so well-timed that most are presuming it's in response to Jay's lyrics.

"Somewhere in America a Jay Z song is onnnnn," she posted on July 4, the same day that "Magna Carta" was released to 1 million Samsung customers.

"Somewhere in America" could be a nod to the song she's featured in, but the latter half of the phrase is also a name-dropping lyric from her own single, "Party in the USA."

Perhaps Jay-Z was simply engaging in a little tit for tat.

    I honestly think twerking is the funniest dance move ever. I was laughing so hard when I saw this video of a German guy making fun of it though http://firsttoknow.com/watch-german-man-confused-by-americas-twerking-obsession/ I kind of had to agree with him after because he had such valid points.

    we didn't say put them on for him we said prepare them....my grandmother prepared my grandfathers undergarments when he came home from work everyday for showering....all those little favors is why my grandfather treated my grandmother like a queen....and now me, vic and the rest prepare for the men also-unless he's independent no biggie but we tend too do things the old fashioned way
