Soulja Boy

The Soulja Boy dance refers to the choreography to a single song, “Crank That (Soulja Boy)”, which was written, performed, and produced by Soulja Boy. The song was first released over the Internet, on YouTube and Myspace, in 2007. It subsequently rocketed to #1 on the Billboard charts. In March 2007, a low budget film was made to teach everybody how to do the Soulja Boy dance.

The dance is performed by hopping/bouncing several times to the left, then to the right. A cross-step and then flying motion are performed during the Superman lyrics of the single. The dance also included shoulder leans and finger snapping.

Also having been nicknamed the “Superman”, the dance quickly spread throughout the United States nightclub scene and then around the world. The pop/hip-hop track combined with line-dance type moves makes it fairly quick to learn and master. It was very common in 2007 to go to the club and see almost everyone dancing the Soulja Boy together.

Soulja Boy was the youngest person to write, perform, and produce a #1 Bilboard hit.
