Keke Wilson Claims the Rights to Her TikTok Dances

Keke Wilson ignited a social-media storm when she posted her "Savage" dance in 2020. The 15-second clip came to define the TikTok dance craze, boosting Megan Thee Stallion's rising rap career. While Wilson, who is 21, created the choreography on her own, several white influencers, including Charlie D'Amelio and Addison Rae, would recreate and become chiefly associated with the dance, thus reaping the rewards.

Despite all this, Wilson, who cheerled and danced competitively for more than 10 years, continues to entertain her 3.3 million followers with dances set to songs like "Freakum Dress" by Beyoncé and "Ragtime Interlude / I'm Really Hot" by Missy Elliott. This time, however, she's building a space that puts her — and other Black content creators — on top.

"I wasn't trying to go viral. It was literally just for fun."

"My life has changed. It did a whole 360, honestly," Wilson tells POPSUGAR about her "Savage" video, which now has over 66.5 million views. "I wasn't trying to go viral. It was literally just for fun. I'm a creator full time and I love it. I love to inspire. I love to help . . . I remember the best part was just waking up and seeing other creators doing my dance."


NEW DANCE ALERT! 🚨 if u use my dance tag me so i can see🤗 @theestallion #writethelyrics #PlayWithLife #foyou #fyp #foryoupage #newdance #savage

On Copyrighting Her "Savage" Dance

In the two years since her dance went viral, Wilson has created hundreds of videos, been spotted at grocery stores, received an invitation to her own meet-and-greet at VidCon 2022, and gotten engaged. She's also secured a copyright on her "Savage" dance. "It's been amazing copyrighting my dance," she says. "I'm very thankful that I was able to copyright it, because now it's my own art, and no one can ever steal from me again." Wilson's victory represents a step forward for Black content creators, whose contributions to social media's biggest trends are often overlooked.

Wilson, who is one of TikTok's Black Trailblazers of 2022, says that her success has been overwhelming but life-changing: "I'm so honored to be in this community, to amplify our voices. I'm very thankful."

"I didn't want to limit myself to be a one-hit-wonder."

Wilson has yet to hear from Megan Thee Stallion's team about the unexpected wave of success brought on by her TikTok dance, but she hopes to someday dance with her and other artists, such as Nicki Minaj. "I also wanted to create more dances. I didn't want to limit myself to be a one-hit wonder," she adds. "I don't see myself going anywhere, unless they shut the app down, of course. I love what I do."

What's Next For Wilson

With millions of followers watching her every move on her main account (as well as her new fitness account,, Wilson aspires to open her own dance studio, improving her dance techniques along the way: "I would love to start classes again and make my dancing even better."

In the meantime, Wilson has a wedding to plan for August. Describing her engagement to Tony Leech in Miami, Wilson says, "At the bottom of the sand, it said, 'Will you marry me?' And I was looking around at everybody, like, 'This isn't for me.' I look around and everybody is recording, and then I just bawled my eyes out. I was speechless. It was just the best moment ever, and I just know when we get married, it's going to be even better."

From trying on wedding dresses to creating dances that are transforming TikTok, Wilson is building a future for herself and her followers filled with hope and possibility.

The best – and very worst – ‘In My Feelings Challenge’ videos


Some of these should definitely not be tried at home. ..


Ah, Internet crazes and challenges – the great divider of young and old, of those in the know and those who ruin it when they belatedly take the joke too far and get everyone in their office to do their own version.

They usually range from the well-meaning (Ice Bucket Challenge) to the vague and benign (Mannequin Challenge). Sometimes though, certain ones come along and really test your faith in humanity (yeah, we’re talking about you, Tide Pod Challenge).

For those unacquainted: the latest big online phenomena is the In My Feelings Challenge, named after Drake‘s song of the same name, which soundtracks many of the spawning viral clips. This newest craze has a lot in common with pretty much all the ones listed above – starting off harmlessly as people just having fun, dancing along to Drake but swiftly leading to instances of people actually throwing themselves out of moving cars.


The craze originates from a video posted by Instagram comedian Shiggy, who filmed himself at the side of the road dancing joyously to Drizzy, throwing shapes while wearing a snazzy salmon-coloured tracksuit.

With fans uploading their own clips of themselves dancing to the ‘Scorpion’ track, celebrities like Kevin Hart delivered their own versions too.

It was NFL player Odell Beckham, though, who was one of the first to film himself doing the dance while exiting a vehicle. He marked America’s bank holiday on the 4th of July by doing what was then known as #TheShiggy.

Singer Ciara followed suit, taking time out of her honeymoon to post a clip all the way from a picturesque Cape Town. By this time, the whole craze was known as the #InMyFeelingsChallenge.

Drake himself even performed the Shiggy dance onstage at Wireless, while fans were climbing up trees in order to get a better view of his surprise set.

Away from the celeb endorsements, the craze has spread rapidly to everyday life, like this dentist who stopped in the middle of his day job to get involved in the viral fun…

The In My Feeling Challenge doesn’t always have to involve a moving car, but some of the most popular ones do. Like this one from Dominican singer DaniLeigh, who definitely nailed her entry.

Or from the top of car bonnets:

— Liza Koshy (@lizakoshy) July 15, 2018

There’s even been instances of people falling out of moving cars, which is never a great idea…

Neither is running into car doors:

HAHAHA when you stop midway through #Kekechallenge @baileywatkiins

— arii (@arianataylorr) July 11, 2018

So, I guess what we’re saying is stay safe, guys, and don’t try these at home, kids.

Because we’re really glad some of these are staged:

The in my feelings challange to end all of them 🙁

Dangerous dances.

Flash mob for Drake's song is getting more and more traumatic

And it's not about a broken heart

Rules of Life editors


the Internet

The flash mob #KekeChallenge (other names are #KikiChallenge #InMyFeelingsChallenge) is very popular online. Its essence is to dance a dance to Drake's song In My Feelings. Under the lines "Keke, do you love me, are you riding?" from this track, flash mob participants dance an invisible steering wheel and show how their heart beats.

American comedian Shiggy was the first to dance to Drake's song, after which such stars as Will Smith and Ciara took up the dance. Later, many decided to complicate the flash mob by adding an unsafe element in the form of a moving car: in order to dance, you must first jump out of a moving car, and then climb back.

This is what a flash mob looks like when everything goes smoothly.

#Kekechallenge I still hate myself but ;)

— bails (@culotta_bailee) July 21, 2018

Gradually, unsuccessful attempts to dance next to a moving car began to be posted more and more often on social networks. Another hashtag #KekeChallengeFail has appeared, and Internet users who suffered during the flash mob are now cursing Drake and his song.

Keke real tired of y'all

I’ve seen much of #KekeChallenge fail. But this one comes out of nowhere and become the most epic fail ever

— Barbara Kopylova (@baabsxx) July 15, 2018

In addition to the possibility of getting hurt, a flash mob can also lead to a robbery.

Look at this #KekeChallenge

— (@itsonlyakram) July 28, 2018

Law enforcement agencies began to pay attention to the dangerous challenge. For example, the Spanish police posted on their Facebook page (the social network was recognized as extremist and banned on the territory of the Russian Federation) a selection of unsuccessful attempts to perform a dance, accompanied by the remark that such behavior on the road is unacceptable.
