While the NFL will do its best to eliminate elaborate touchdown celebrations as possible, they still exist. Many touchdown passes may come from a popular dance…whether it be the whip and nae nae, juju on that beat, the dab, and everything else out there. Many times we have no idea what some players are doing, but we love the creativity that goes along with it.
New Jersey rapper Chris Porter came up with a song called “The Water Dance.” Oddly enough, he made the song without having a dance to go with it when it first came out.
“Other songs, it’s set up…move to the left, move to the right…I made ‘Water Dance’ before there was a dance to water dance.”
Water in the beat, water dance…simple enough.
“If you listen to the beat closely, there’s water in the production, and that’s what I heard. I reacted. I said water dance and so everybody in the world who was hearing the song said…’what’s the actual water dance?'”
Once the dance to the song came out, the rest was history. It started spreading like a wildfire. The dance really went to another level when Mohamed Sanu, on the Cincinnati Bengals at the time, did the dance when he scored a touchdown.
Funny how it works, right?
“It was a total surprise, it was amazing. It spread. It went viral”
The ‘Water Dance’ might not be Porter’s last song that becomes a TD dance, though. He’s got the “Look At Me Dance” coming next, which is his next single.
“It’s gritty, but it definitely makes the crowd get nasty.”
What’s the future hold for the rapper, who is a Nets and Giants fan?
“I plan on becoming a superstar rapper like Jay-Z and bringing them back home to New Jersey.”
