This daring dance, set to an even bolder track, was an instant hit among TikTok users, and it quickly went viral across the platform. Takes on Esperon’s dance from stars like Addison Rae also went viral, and it’s still one of the platform’s most popular videos.
“Jeremih” — Oui
This dance, which went viral in late 2021 and early 2022, is perfect to do with a partner or friend. Since the steps are pretty simple, it’s an easy trend to share in, and lots of people have gone viral with their own takes, including Lizzo.
“Up” – Cardi B
Cardi B’s songs have provided an endless source of inspiration for TikTok dances, and Mya Johnson teamed up with Chris Cotter to create this fantastic routine for “Up.” Their dynamic dance was a huge viral hit, and numerous popular TikTok creators have posted recreations on their own pages.
