History of the Best Hip-Hop Dance Songs Since the 2000s

There's a dance revolution that's been going strong since the 2000s and hip-hop continues to add its own sauce to the mix with chart-topping songs and viral-worthy moves. Last month, Drake launched his own social media dance craze on TikTok when he introduced a new dance step on his No. 1 hit single, "Toosie Slide." The hashtag #ToosieSlide hit a billion views in just two days on TikTok, making it the fastest music trend on the social video sharing platform.

This isn't the first time Drake had celebrities and fans alike dancing to one of his songs. Three years ago, his #InMyFeelings challenge took off thanks to comedian and internet personality Shiggy. Over 787,000 people have posted their versions on Instagram. But Drake is not the first rapper to spark a viral dance craze. In fact, rappers have been creating dances that have become a nationwide trend since the 1980s. However, it was the 2000s when the hip-hop dance tracks went into overdrive.

In the 2000s, when the internet was in its infinite stages, rappers often used dance crazes to promote their singles. In 2007, Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy had fans leaping into the Superman pose with his rap-dance song "Crank That." Meanwhile, Lil Jon pushed snap music and its dance to the mainstream with his track, "Snap Yo Fingers." On the West Coast, Cali Swag District was teaching folks how to do the Dougie with the aptly titled "Teach Me How to Dougie."

In New York, G.Dep introduced fans to the Harlem Shake, which later morphed into the "Chicken Noodle Soup" dance by DJ Webstar. Fat Joe and Remy Ma also had thugs swaying back and forth with his classic club banger "Lean Back."

Currently, the TikTok generation has sparked dance crazes through rappers' songs. Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage" launched a dance challenge courtesy of 19-year-old choreographer and TikTok personality Keara Wilson. And K Camp's "Lottery (Renegade)" received a huge boost in streams after TikTok dancer Jalaiah Harmon went viral with her version of the Renegade dance.

Since dance challenges are the new trend on TikTok and rappers are still capitalizing off dances in their music, XXL highlights best hip-hop dances songs since the 2000s. Check it out.

  • "Let's Get It"

  • "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)"

  • "Milly Rock"

    2 Milly

  • "The Woah"

    Tspeed and 5upamanhoe

    Released: September 2017

    The origins of who created The Woah dance remains a mystery with several rappers and dancers claiming to have created the viral dance. Rappers Tspeed and 5upamanhoe dropped a song called "The Woah" and credited the Rollie Bros, a troupe of Dallas dancers who had created a dance called the Rollie in 2015. Simultaneously, another rapper named A-1 SteakSauce released a track called "Hit My Woah" with the song's producer, DJ Dangerous, claiming to have created the dance. Meanwhile, students at Prairie View A&M claimed the dance originated at their school. In the end, it's all still very confusing. But what isn't is how dance has taken on a life of its own through songs and video old and new.

  • "Woah"

    KRYPTO9095 Featuring D3MSTREET

    Released: 2018

    Not to be confused with Tspeed and 5upamanhoe's "The Woah,” Miami rapper KRYPTO9095’s dance-rap song, simply titled “Woah,” went viral on TikTok in 2018 with over 21 million views so far. The instructional dance video itself has garnered over 94 million views on YouTube. KRYPTO’s dance takes cues from "The Woah” and can be combined with several other movements like the Rollie and even the Wicked dance.

  • "Lottery"

    K Camp

    Released: 2019

    K Camp's 2019 song "Lottery (Renegade)" became a smash hit on TikTok thanks to classically trained dancer Jalaiah Harmon. The 14-year-old teen and her friends debuted their new Renegade dance on Instagram using the Reazy Renegade-produced song as its soundtrack before it went crazy viral on TikTok with the #RenegadeChallenge. Initially, Harmon didn't get credit for creating her "Woah"-inspired dance, much to Black Twitter's outrage. But that changed after The New York Times profiled her, and Harmon got to show off her fancy footwork at the 2020 NBA All-Star Game and on Ellen. Harmon also met K Camp who thanked her for pushing "Lottery" over 100 million streams on DSPs.

  • "Toosie Slide"


    Released in: 2020

    In 2018, Drake’s hit song “In My Feelings” went viral on Instagram thanks to internet personality Shiggy’s viral dance clip. In 2020, Drizzy scored another dance hit when he dropped the instructional dance single, “Toosie Slide,” which went viral on TikTok. The catchy chorus mixed with its simple dance tutorial, almost similar to the "Cha Cha Slide," garnered Drake three billion views on the social video-sharing platform via the #ToosieSlide hashtag.

  • "Savage"

    Megan Thee Stallion

    Released in: 2020

    The ladies bring the fun to hip-hop dance tracks too. Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage” dance was first created by 19-year-old choreographer and TikTok personality Keara Wilson. Soon after, the Houston hottie started performing the dance steps in lingerie and sweats in her home while under quarantine, all seen on Instgagram. The flirtatious dance, which consists of moving your hips and swinging your arms, has garnered over 563 million views on TikTok through the hashtag #SavageChallenge.

    African American dance

    Main article: African American dance

    See also: Lindy Hop and Hip Hop dance

    African American dances are those folk dances that have developed in the African American community in everyday spaces, not in dance studios, schools or companies. African American folk dances usually focus on social dance practice, although performance dance and concert dance often complement each other's social dances.

    Emphasizes improvisation African American folk dances are constantly changing and evolving. Because they exist in social spaces and their main "goal" is self-expression, they are constantly changing to reflect the needs, interests, and personalities of their members.

    Alvin Ailey and Alvin Ailey's American Dance Theater is an important example of African American participation in performance or concert dance.

    Swing dance

    swing dance "refers to a group of dances that developed simultaneously with Jazz in the 1920s, 30s and 40s. The most iconic of the various swing dance styles is the Lindy Hop, which originated in Harlem and is still danced today. While most swing dances began in the African American community as colloquial African American dances, [2] some forms, such as Balboa, developed in Euro-American or other ethnic groups.

    Dances such as the Black Bottom, Charleston, Shag, and Tap Dance traveled north from Dixieland Jazz to New York, Kansas City, and Chicago in the Great Migration (African American) of the 1920s, when rural blacks fled persecution , Jim Crow laws, lynching and unemployment in the south (during the Great Depression).

    Swing jazz includes syncopated timing associated with African American and West African music and dance - a combination of hook and tremble that many swing dancers interpret as 'triple steps' and 'steps' - but also introduces changes to the way these rhythms were played - a distinct delay or "relaxed" approach to timing.

    Swing dance is now found all over the world, with a wide variety of preferences for specific dances.

    American modern dance developed in the early 20th century along with American music. Modern dance pioneers included Isadora Duncan, the Ruth St. Denis dance company and her partner husband, Ted Schon, and their students Doris Humphrey and Martha Graham. The creators of early modern dance broke with European classical forms, succumbing to gravity, starting from the center, not the limbs, and emphasizing emotional directness in their choreography. Many of Graham's most popular works were created in collaboration with leading American composers - "Appalachian Spring" with Aaron Copland, for example.

    Later choreographers, Merce Cunningham introduced random routines and composition by area, and Alvin Ailey incorporated elements of African dance and black music into his work. Recently, Mark Morris and Liz Lerman showed that graceful, exciting moves are not limited by age or body type.
