The fancy like dance is a popular TikTok dance that has taken the world by storm. The dance involves wearing colorful and flashy outfits with loud music and requires strength, stamina and energy. It is a great way to get the whole family involved in a fun activity.
The dance has also caught on with celebrities, and country star RaeLynn Robertson is one of them. The country singer and her husband, Christian Huff, recently hopped on the trend, and it’s safe to say they had a blast doing it!
Who is the father-daughter duo behind the “Fancy Like” dance?
In June, Walker Hayes and his daughter, Lela, created a dance for their song “Fancy Like” from his new EP Country Stuff. The video sparked a viral response, hitting more than four million views within a few days.
What made the song so successful?
When songwriters Cameron Bartolini, Josh Jenkins and Shane Stevens were writing “Fancy Like,” they had a conversation about the pretensions that artists often put on themselves. As a result, they decided to write a song about embracing the less-fancy parts of life.
It quickly became a hit, racking up over 180 million streams and climbing to the top of Billboard’s country digital song sales chart. It’s also a hit on pop radio, and has even earned a remix from Kesha.
How did it go from a country song to a worldwide pop hit?
In the song’s lyrics, the “Fancy Like” singer explains how his wife Laney is his “favorite person” because she is always with him, no matter what. The song is a love letter to his wife, and it’s also a tribute to the restaurant Applebee’s. So much so that Applebee’s used the song in its national commercial campaign.
