Fancy Like Dance Is One of the Biggest Hits of 2021

Fancy like dance is one of the biggest hits of 2021, but it wasn’t a sure thing for country artist Walker Hayes upon its release. It didn’t even make the country radio charts initially. Despite the lack of commercial success at first, “Fancy Like” found its way onto TikTok (where it was helped along by a remix with Kesha) and went on to top every country streaming and sales chart it could including spending 17 weeks at number one on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

Despite the song’s catchy hook and production, what really made it take off was a TikTok video of Hayes and his daughter dancing to the tune. The clip, which was posted on June 13 of this year, ended up racking up over 4 million views within four days and soon inspired copycat videos from fans and celebrities alike.

As a result, the song quickly became the most played country track on the platform and climbed into the top 10 of Apple Music’s US All Genre chart. In addition, a popular Oreo shake that was namedropped in the hit has returned to the menu of Applebee’s restaurants after it made an appearance in a commercial featuring the song.

With that kind of momentum behind it, there’s no reason to think “Fancy Like” won’t continue to rise on the charts. In fact, the song has already spent over 14 weeks in the top five of Country Airplay and might well make it to number one by the time October ends.
