If the lyrics “Keke/do you love me” have been on a loop in your head, you have a viral dance challenge to thank.

The challenge began with online personality Shiggy, who posted a video of himself dancing on the road to Drake’s “In My Feelings” from his recently released album “Scorpion.”


However, the dance craze may have truly blown up when pro footballer Odell Beckham Jr. created his version while getting out of his car and trying to re-create Shiggy’s dance moves.

In two weeks, Shiggy’s video has gained 5.7 million views, while Beckham’s has racked up 9.3 million, inspiring different versions across the world.

A number of them take after Beckham’s version and have added the challenge of filming the dance while the vehicle is moving.

The craze hit the Philippines, with dancers creating localized versions and memes of it—and let’s just say they’re more out of hand than the original dance intended.

From Kim Chiu to Will Smith, celebrities have also gotten in on the fun.

And as Will Smith does, he went the extra mile by climbing a Budapest bridge and filming the dance with a drone.

Though charting in the Billboard 100 is nothing new to Drake, the rapper thanked Shiggy for putting “In My Feelings” at the top.

Drake posted a picture with the social media star yesterday, July 18 (5:10 a.m. Manila time), to show him his gratitude.
