A month ago, Maja Salvador fulfilled one of men's desires by twerking to the tune of Brandon Beal's infectious "Twerk It Like Miley," only to kick it up a notch with a follow-up performance two weeks after. And just when we we're bracing ourselves for part three, one of Maja's celebrity fans—fellow Kapamilya actress Ella Cruz—continued the trend.

You aren't to blame if you're not quite familiar with Ella considering that she just turned legal last year. Starting out her career as a child actress in GMA 7, she crossed over to ABS-CBN and was known for playing the titular teen mermaid character Aryana and, recently, a college student knocked up by a high school student (Nash Aguas) in Bagito.

Ella is also known to her fans as the "Teen Dance Princess," an interesting derivative from Maja's "Dance Princess" title, given the former's adoration for the latter. We mean, just look at Ella's reaction when Maja surprised her during her birthday production number on ASAP last year:

At that time, Ella was clearly an admirer—the ardent fan in her almost ruining her dance routine when idol Maja entered. That is likely still the case now, but Ella may have one-upped Maja in her recent YouTube upload:

The hypnotizing video already has 580,282 views as of this writing, and expect that number to go up in the next few days. It's too early to look at this as sort of a "passing of the Dance Princess torch" kind of thing, but boy did Ella make Maja (and us!) damn proud shaking those buns. In any case, we just have to thank whoever timed the release of that single...
