CHANGE OF STEPS!!! To match the various changes of lyrics and beats throughout the track you (can choose to) change some of the steps in 3 different places in the dance.

The 1st time is during your second A, in section 2, counts 5-6&7. Do the following to hit the lyrics ‘shake your ass’...
Point back, hip bumps & pop
5Point R backwards (5) 9:00
6&7Bump hips back (6), bump hips fwd and up (&), bump hips back popping L knee fwd (7) ... ... continue from count 8 (L samba step) 9:00

The 2nd time is also during your second A, in section 4, counts &5-8. Do the following to hit the beats in the music:
Ball cross, hitch, step slide

7 – 8Step R a big step to R side (7), slide L towards R (8) ... continue with the L sailor step ... 12:00

The 3rd time is the last 2 counts of the B section. It always happens during the verse where Ne-Yo sings ‘I work my ass off’ and it always happens facing 3:00. Hit the lyrics this way: Back R with L knee pop, hold, weight change to L
