Beyoncé's puts a new twist on an old favorite, with the help of First Lady Michelle Obama. The Texas native has teamed up with Mrs. Obama and the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation to help fight childhood obesity by remixing her hit "Get Me Bodied" for the "Let's Move!" initiative.

"I hope you guys are ready, let's make healthier choices and let's move," says Beyoncé in the campaign's introduction clip.

Crafting a new "Get Me Bodied" version with producer Swizz Beatz entitled ‘Move Your Body,’ the R&B star's new take features fresh lyrics, salsa and classic breaks as well as dance directions.

The nationally syndicated "Let’s Move!" campaign encourages middle school kids to exercise through dance by allowing the children to practice the routine and show off their moves on May 3.
