KMJQ Featured Video





This week, Beyoncé sparked yet another dance craze with a line number called “The Wobble.” A viral video of the “Single Ladies” singer partying in the middle of the street with a group of women and girls has been streamed one million times since it hit the Web Monday.

According to ABC News, the impromptu jam session occurred during a block party in New Jersey, where Beyoncé was visiting her mother-in-law.

More than a dozen ladies giggled in awe while dancing alongside the seemingly unassuming superstar, who was dressed down in a T-shirt, black jeans and heels.



More fans are eager to join the frenzy. “I (wanna) learn how to do that dance Wobble,” Twitter user J Leslie (LOVED_notspoil) wrote on her page., the song, which has a big band, ragtime feel, is not new. Atlanta rapper V.I.C. released the track in July 2008, and a video that featured the dance soon followed. The 23-year-old rapper was happily surprised when he saw the video of Beyoncé dancing to his song on World Star Hip Hop.

“I was so amazed,” he told Yahoo! Music. “That’s like Jay-Z saying one of your lines. You want that. She’s an icon.”

Beyoncé’s performance of the dance is flawless. “First of all, as far as dance, she’s always been great,” V.I.C. says. “She could have done the dance and fell–and still got a 10.”

V.I.C., who is currently in Hawaii for a concert date, hopes to meet her, so he can tell her how much he appreciates her reaction to his music. number of YouTube plays for V.I.C.’s original “Wobble” video has increased by at least 100,000 since the Beyoncé clip dropped earlier this week, according to V.I.C. In the original piece, the female dancers shake it in shimmy dresses, and there’s a dedication credit to Cab Calloway.

“The man was great,” V.I.C. says of the late legendary singer. “I wanted folks to understand that I know music … and that I am a real artist. It was to pay homage.”

The timing is perfect for the rapper formerly signed to Warner Bros. and had a top 40 hit collaboration with Soulja Boy, “Get Silly.” His Twitter page has been flooded with posts about his new independent single.

Beyoncé’s spontaneous footwork wasn’t the only surprise this week. When Justin Timberlake appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon Thursday, he and the host performed an impressive medley of hip-hop classics, including songs by the Sugar Hill Gang, Snoop Dogg, and Missy Elliot. On Tuesday, Brad Paisley, Merle Haggard, and Martina McBride, among other country icons, joined for the reopening of the Grand Ole Opry. Plus, the list of nominees for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame was released.

How about that: a drama-free week in music? Something must be wrong. But music personalities aren’t out of the doghouse just yet. Maybe next week they will stir up some trouble to redeem their bad boy and bad girl reps. Stay tuned.
