Another week of October has wrapped and once again, it was full of viral moments that popped off thanks to social media.
This was especially a good week for talented individuals whom we may know from our timelines but rarely see in the national spotlight. Dancers and singers who might have underestimated their reach were catapulted to a higher platform thanks to some big names.
Then, there were some people’s names that reached the spotlight for less than positive reasons — names that were remixed and modified to highlight how racism still operates in America.
With social media, winners and losers will always be put on blast. Check out the winners for this week below, then hit the next page to find out who went viral for taking a L.
New York dancers
Ever since Lil Wayne dropped Tha Carter V back in September, music fans couldn’t help but notice the New York flavor of one standout track “Uproar.” As soon as the record hit streaming, people started posting their #UproarChallenge videos inspired by NYC dances like The Harlem Shake and litefeet.
Weezy definitely took notice and finally dropped the music video for “Uproar.” It was full of familiar faces from the New York scene, including viral sensation Shiggy, and litefeet dancers such as KiD Pat and Jayy Wavy.
New York definitely got some NOLA shine.
Everyone loves a good child prodigy and it seems like Bri’Anna Harper is on her way to being a star.
The 10-year-old first got some buzz when her mom E’boni Lomax-Harper posted a video of Bri’Anna singing The Jackson 5‘s “Who’s Lovin’ You” on Twitter. The clip soon went viral with over 200,000 views. Then, give-away guru Ellen DeGeneres couldn’t help but take notice and she brought Bri’Anna and her family on her show. Not only did she have Bri’Anna sing, but she gifted the family with a new car and $10,000!
