What are the most popular dances to learn rn?
Until the last couple of months, if you’re not a member of Gen Z, you may not have heard of TikTok, and while its popularity was certainly on the rise, it has exploded in the age of quarantine, with many celebrities jumping on the bandwagon too.
TikTok is taking off in a big way, but if you’re not familiar with it, the app allows you to share short videos of yourself, which can then be edited with various effects and music.
Amongst the most viral content shared on the app are various dance challenges, with some of these spilling over into the mainstream, with many artists seeing huge success after their songs were turned into TikTok dances. But what are the most popular dances on the app right now?

Set to Relationship by Young Thug (featuring Future), the dance craze which has featured in more songs than any other is the “Number One Baby” dance, appearing in over 36 million different videos.
The dance itself is pretty simple to execute, and like many others, the moves pretty much follow the lyrics of the song, ending with you rocking an imaginary baby. Easy, right?
2. Lottery (Renegade) – K Camp

One of the most famous TikTok dances, the Renegade has spread beyond the app itself, but despite its popularity, it’s actually pretty tough to nail.
The original version is even harder and was started by 14-year-old Jalaiah Harmon and spread through her school like wildfire before going viral.
It features the song “Lottery” by K Camp, which was even retitled as “Lottery (Renegade)” due to the hype around the dance.
3. Laxed (Siren Beat) – Jawsh 685

This is a perfect example of a song which has come from nowhere to appear in millions of TikToks (over 26 million so far).
Both song and dance are incredibly straightforward (which is maybe why its proved so successful) with just a couple of steps that you can easily pick up without a tutorial.
All video counts are taken from TikTok and are correct as of 30/04/2020.
