How do you hit the quan dance

iHeart Memphis Talks Rich Homie Quan And His Viral Video

iHeart Memphis scored his breakout record with “Hit The Quan,” a sing-songy smash based on a popular dance by Rich Homie Quan. While some artists might be wary of being pigeonholed by the success of a trendy song, Memph is embracing the lane “Hit The Quan” is carving.

“My music is danceable,” says the 22-year-old rapper. “You have to come up with the dance first and then put the music on top of it. As long as it’s catchy, people are going to do it.” “Hit The Quan” has quickly climbed to No. 20 on the Hot 100. iHeart Memphis spoke with Billboard about creating the hottest new dance in rap.

‘Hit The Quan’ Hits Top 10 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart

How did “Hit the Quan” first come about? What’s the story behind the song?

Me personally just being myself and having fun. I’ve been a popular guy in Memphis, so I had a Memphis fanbase. And a song by Rich Homie Quan called “Flex” it came out and it was this little dance that he do. And people really like the dance, but they didn’t have a song to the dance, so I made a song to the dance called “Hit the Quan.” I was just having fun, being myself and came up with an idea. It was actually a female — a white girl — who gave me the idea to do it, because she put me on to Rich Homie Quan. So actually, a female is the reason. I keep forgetting.

How did it go from an idea to a full-blown song? Did you hear the beat first? Come up with the words first?

I knew how I wanted it to go. Like, “Hit the Quan,” hit the quan, get down low and swing your arms. It’s really a freestyle. I really freestyled “Hit the Quan.” I freestyle a whole lot. But the hook was planned. I called my producer and I said, “Hey, can you make me a beat like Rich Homie Quan’s beat?” I wanted the tempo to be the same so I could be able to hit his dance in it. And in a couple of hours, he sent me the beat and I went to his studio that same day and I recorded it. I put it up and posted it the next day.  I posted it around 5, and when I posted it, it was so many comments and so many people was just liking it. 

Did you post the song on SoundCloud, or a video?

Nah, I had posted a video of me doing the main part that people love, the #HitTheQuanChallenge. I call it the #HitTheQuanChallenge. I had made a challenge too, so that’s another thing that made it buzz, because it’s a challenge, so people say, “Hey, I gotta try this challenge.”

What was it about RHQ’s dance for his song that made you want to do this?

Well, I know a lot of people take people’s dances because the people that make the best dances, they don’t really have good lyrics. And the people that have good lyrics, they really can’t dance. If they have both of them, those are what you call a superstar because they’re multi-talented. The people that can make people like their music and make people dance, they’re called superstars. You have to come up with the dance first and then put the music on top of it, because as long as it’s catchy, people are going to do it.

Have you met or spoken to Quan? Got any response from him about the song?

Two weeks after I made the song, his baby mama had posted it. She said she liked it and thought it was cute. And I’m sure she told Rich Homie and he went on her page and seen it. I know Rich Homie knows, though. Me being No. 8 on the Billboard chart with a song called “Hit the Quan,” Rich Homie Quan is going to be the first one to know. But his camp reached out to me. He personally hasn’t reached out to me. But his camp reached out to me and I told them that I didn’t want Rich Homie on the song because I didn’t want people to think that it was his song and outshine me. Because I had a song called “Hit the Quan,” I realized that his fans are paying me attention anyway. I would kinda be selling myself short by putting Quan on it.

Did you think about maybe doing a remix with him in it?

Yeah, most likely. I’ma just put the people who are on top of the Billboard charts with me on it, whoever on the top of the charts and have a fan base I would put them on it. I was thinking about Drake and Fetty Wap [laughs] when I thought about it. I have Future saying “Hit the Quan,” it don’t matter, man. I don’t care. I just wanna have fun and let people have fun. I’ma let the people decide who they want. 

Do you have a dance background?

I taught myself how to dance last year. I just created music I can dance to. I’ll make the world do something I know how to do. Nobody will ever, ever, ever beat my first “Hit the Quan” video, because it’s the first “Hit the Quan” video. I don’t care if they have like a whole army hitting the Quan and I don’t care if Beyoncé and Jay-Z hit the Quan and they kill it. Nothing will ever be better than the first. Like Michael Jordan. I don’t care how hard anybody play because nobody will be better than Michael Jordan. 

It’s rare that such a big hit is independently recorded and released.

The only money I’ve spent was $35 for the studio time. I owe my engineer $5 because she charged me $40. I’m trying to stand strong behind being independent. I’m making all of this happen from social media. I’ve met with every record label; they’re having a bidding war. That happened for a reason: so that I can realize what I was doing on my own.

What’s your favorite viral video of someone dancing to your song?

My favorite is when Chris Brown did it. I feel like he’s not sour towards an artist shining and he’s supporting and he understands it’s just fun.

Hit The Quan |

By iLoveMemphis

Sex: Just A Little Drugs: None Violence: None Language: None

"Hit the Quan" refers to a dance move where the person drops down low, swings their arms and walks with a swagger. It's a reference to moves made by the rapper Rich Homie Quan.

It's a rap song with no curse words, or obvious references to drugs or violence. Besides the dance moves he raps about flexing and hot chicks.


In the video iLoveMemphis wakes up to hear that he's becoming a sensation. He heads to a local high school where everyone dances to the song.


Yo, Yah

I paper chase then vanish

I heart Memphis, but I also love dancing
I done took off on em, I don't plan on landing

No FaceTime but the people want to Skype me
If I do time then who would really write me?
I stay on y'all mind but, oh, I think they like me
Clean pair of sneaks, with a designer belt
Please watch your step cause I'm feeling myself
Throw a flag on the play, man somebody get the ref
Cop blah la la la low, man somebody get some help
Pull up on the block

Hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan

Your whole team rats, your CEO is Master Splinter

People want to dap it up but they can't get none from me

People wanna walk around me tryna steal my lingo

I said get down low and hit the Quan
I'm finna show you how to
Hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan
I said get down low and swing your arm
I said get down low and hit the Quan

How to understand that you are in a good pole dance studio?

Finding out if the pole dance studio you want to work in is good or not.
You need to form your impression according to several criteria.

Quality of service and degree of comfort

Look at how welcoming the staff of the studio is to you, do you feel that you are welcome here. Listen to your inner feelings - how pleasant is it for you to be here, do you want to return? nine0003 If you catch yourself thinking: “What did I forget here?” - Probably not worth buying a subscription.

An important aspect is the studio itself

Evaluate the cleanliness and order in the hall and on the way to it - in the reception area, in the locker room. Is everything in its place? Are there any broken furniture, unclosable cubicles, torn handles on the doors? Is there hair or dust on the floor? The place should be pleasant, and this can be summarized as follows: when a person comes to this place, you come and you like it. The hall should be spacious, bright, warm. nine0004

Directions offered by the studios

It is important for beginners to get into the group of beginners, and some studios do not divide those involved into "beginners" and "amateurs", they have the same groups. Take, for example, exotic pole dance (dance, tricks) and sport pole dance (tricks). Imagine: a person came to a group for amateurs (and he is a beginner) to dance, then the coach will not give him a separate task, everyone performs the same elements, and one person cannot do something else. The coach shows the choreographic sequences, and everyone should do just that. In such a situation, a beginner simply pays for attendance at the lesson, he will not be able to fully engage. It is unacceptable not to have divisions into beginners/amateurs groups. nine0004

In sport pole dance another system

No division into groups is allowed here. The trainer shows the tricks and tells which variation of the trick is easy and which is more difficult. Students are divided into subgroups and perform those variations that suit their level. If a person is going to a sports pole dance, then he can go to any group. However, then everything will depend on the coach; if the coach is good, then he will set a separate program for a beginner who has come to a group where everyone has been practicing for a long time. If all groups are mixed, it doesn’t matter, you just need to choose a good coach for yourself. nine0004

Your goals in Pole Dance

It remains to be added that if you are serious about practicing, then pay attention to the qualifications of the coaches who teach in a particular studio or school. The level of the studio raises the professionalism of trainers.
