Country artist Walker Hayes continues to go viral on TikTok thanks to his song ‘Fancy Like’ and the corresponding dance he choreographed with his daughter.

If there’s one thing TikTok is known for, it’s dancing. For several years now users have been creating short and snappy dances to some of the most popular hits in the charts, as well as older songs that get a new lease of life through the social media platform.

Dances like the ‘Renegade’ and ‘Savage’ are recognizable to many, both on TikTok and off TikTok, and new dances are being created all the time as new singles gain popularity on the platform.

The fun video of the pair dancing together went on to get over 20 million views and nearly 2.5 million likes, with people loving the combination of the catchy tune and the well-suited dance.

Hayes has now spent sixteen weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart with the hit and twenty weeks on the chart in total, which just goes to show how much influence TikTok can have over the charts when the right video goes viral.

And although it’s been many months since the song was first released, it continues to be used widely across TikTok and is a track still loved by many.

In August, the track even inspired Applebee’s to bring back their popular Oreo Shake after it was mentioned in the lyrics.

Walker has previously had a successful hit with his song ‘You Broke Up With Me’ in 2017, with the song currently at over 36 million views on YouTube.

But his latest hit definitely seems to have found its home on TikTok, with thousands of people using the sound as a backing track for their own video, or even to try out the popular dance.
