Cardi B shared this choreographer’s ‘WAP’ dance. Then it went viral on TikTok.
Within hours of the early August drop of “WAP” by rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, YouTube choreographer Brian Esperon posted a fast-paced and joyful routine to the female empowerment anthem with not-safe-for-work lyrics.
By the next day, he watched as a TikTok segment streaked toward viral status. Among his work’s admirers: Cardi B herself.
The artist tweeted a clip of Esperon, 28, of Guam, dancing to the song, followed by an Instagram Live of her trying to learn his routine while retweeting others who had attempted Esperon’s moves.
“When she learned it on her Instagram Live is when I completely lost it,” Esperon told NBC News. “The fact that it made it so big that it got to Cardi B herself is super insane.”
A month later, his world is still spinning.
