If you’re a fan of pop culture, you’ve likely seen the viral videos of Ricky Walker’s “Fancy Like Dance.” Fans across the country are trying their best to perform the choreography to the hit song. You might have even caught a copycat video of the dance in TikTok, where many people are uploading videos of their own. In fact, the song has already reached Number One on the all-genre charts on Apple Music. Although Ricky Walker wishes he could claim the credit for his song’s viral popularity, he simply wasn’t dancing at the time.
The video was so popular that Applebee has used it in its commercials. While the video has received much criticism, it’s hard to deny that it’s one of the most memorable pop songs of the year. In fact, the song’s video became a viral sensation, earning Hayes over $50 million in just two months. And while the music video has become a viral hit, the lyrics remain a popular pop song.
While many people may have watched the video of Hayes’ daughter performing the dance, it wasn’t until it went viral that other people began performing their own versions of the song. After gaining popularity and a number one single, Hayes and his daughter even promised their daughters Christmas blow up lawn decorations. “Fancy Like” is their latest single, and they’re going on tour to support the song with their own fans. If their video becomes a hit, Hayes hopes to continue to build on their success for many years.
