Dlow, born Derrion Simmons, has all of Chicago hitting his new dance “The Dlow Shuffle” since posting the tutorial to YouTube in early December.
The dance has even caught the attention of famed comedian Steve Harvey. Harvey brought Dlow and Lil Kemo onto his daytime talk show to perform the dance.
Dlow told Harvey he would have never guessed his dance would go viral.
“I was just sitting in the house one day and just decided to do something,” he said. “It’ a blessing to see everybody doing it…all the kids doing it, schools, churches, everybody…it’s just amazing.”
Dlow went on to explain the meaning behind his name and the keys to learning the dance.
“Dlow means determined, loyal, optimistic and willing to learn,” he said. “That’s the key to the dance. The other key is the moves.”
Lil Kemo soon joined Dlow on the set and proceeded to make bopping and the “Dlow Shuffle” global.
