Kudos to Megan Thee Stallion! The “Plan B” rapper won a 2022 Billboard Music Award in the Top Rap Female Artist category. She had already won the same award in 2021.

“Thank you very much,” she said during her acceptance speech. “First of all, thanks to the hotties because without the hotties, there would be no hot girl coach.” The “hotties” are Megan Thee Stallion’s devoted fan base.

Cardi B, a collaborator of Megan Thee Stallion, and Latto were named alongside her.

Megan Thee Stallion is an awards season darling, with three Grammys (including Best New Artist), four BMI Awards, two NAACP Image Awards and more to her credit.

The rapper officially emerged in 2016, during a local cipher that quickly went viral. She followed that up with a number of freestyles and remixes, her first big hit being “Big Ole Freak” in 2017. The song peaked at #65 on the Billboard Hot 100 and appeared on her “Tina Snow” mixtape.

Her follow-up project, “Fever,” further contributed to her growing buzz and came just as her viral catchphrase “hot girl summer” was taking off. Less than a year later, Megan released “Suga”, which contained the single “Savage”. In April 2020 Beyoncé appeared on the official remix and the following winter Megan won two Grammys for the song.

She unveiled her first album, “Good News”, in November 2020. She is currently preparing her second official release.

During a 2021 interview with ESSENCE, Megan revealed what the album would sound like, saying, “I feel like [my new album] will be aggressive… I feel like this project is definitely something very well thought out. This project is about me talking my shit, getting comfortable with myself, getting back to the Megan that was riding. We can’t wait.

Congratulations on your last major victory, Megan!

Watch out, Jack Harlow!

Louis Theroux, the British documentary filmmaker of BBC fame, perhaps did not imagine himself as an MC, no less famous. Yet thanks to a few quirky rap verses he penned for a 20-year-old documentary — and a few savvy Manchester DJs named Duke and Jones — Theroux has become one of the most unlikely TikTok music stars.

The 51-year-old son of novelist and travel writer Paul Theroux debuted his rap “My Money Don’t Jiggle, Jiggle, It Folds” in a 2000 episode of his docuseries “Weird Weekends.” In it, Theroux traveled to New Orleans to interview Southern MCs like Mello T, Master P and QT-Pie – then took part in a rap battle live on the famous hip-hop radio station of the city, Q93 FM, refereed by local DJ Wild Wayne.

Carefully reading from a crumpled piece of paper, Theroux rhymed, in a distinctly primitive English accent: “My money don’t move, move, it bends / I like to see you move, move, that’s for sure.”

Twenty-two years later, a remix of his rap has sparked a dance craze on TikTok — where everyone from Snoop Dogg to Rita Ora can be found squirming to “Jiggle Jiggle.”

Theroux’s novelty rap found a new audience after a February 2022 episode of the YouTube series “Chicken Shop Date,” in which vlogger Amelia Dimoldenberg asked Theroux to reprise his original a capella rap. On March 16, Manchester DJ duo Duke and Jones created a stylish remix of the song and shared it on TikTok.

Since then, the track has been used in 1.2 million videos on the platform.

Theroux could not be reached for comment. But Duke and Jones, 26, whose real names are Luke Conibear and Isaac McKelvey, told The Times the documentarian is a “national treasure in the UK”.

“We didn’t look [‘Weird Weekends’] when it came out because we were about three,” the DJs said over email, “but the show stayed on Netflix for a while when we were in high school and it became quite the phenomenon in our group of friends.

The “Jiggle Jiggle” remix didn’t just raise the pair’s profile on TikTok – it landed them a record deal with Sony Music UK’s Robots + Humans imprint.

As children, Duke and Jones shared an affinity for playing FIFA, munching on grilled cheese and tinkering with beats on Logic. Once they mastered Logic’s built-in pitch correction plugin, they made a name for themselves with a TikTok series titled “Adding Auto-Adjust to Random Videos.” British analogues of American comedians the Gregory Brothers, behind the “Auto-Tune the News” gag, Duke and Jones would sift through old cartoons and TV interviews for clips to play.

“A lot of our early videos were about kids or angry people,” Duke and Jones said, “because we found that these two groups were talking quite rhythmically and hitting a much wider range of notes in their speech than conversation. normal, so this gives the autotune more to work with.

Theroux’s slow, orderly flow made the perfect specimen for a remix, they said. The duo then created an extended remix from an additional clip they found, featuring Theroux rapping on UK late-night show “The Russell Howard Hour” in 2018. cramps/cupping suffer from paralysis .

On the same show, however, Theroux issued a warning for his rhymes: “If you take hip-hop very seriously, doing a comedy rap is pretty sacrilegious.”

But like Theroux, Duke and Jones identify as hip-hop aficionados – they name Manchester rapper Aitch, as well as Denzel Curry and Kendrick Lamar as some of their favorite MCs. Besides their humorous remixes, the duo create their own original music; in 2020, they released a dubstep-infused house EP titled “Solace.” They can be spotted behind DJ booths in clubs in and around Manchester, or whipping up beats for artists like English grime MC Flowdan.

Is there any chance Theroux wants to pursue his hip-hop career? If so, Duke and Jones remain on standby.

” We do not have Again played the autotune remixes at clubs,” they said. “But we may have to make an exception for King Louis and stick him somewhere in the background.”

The New York rap scene has a new formula that is making songs go viral every day.

The art of taking a classic song and transmuting it to fit a new era through sampling has been a staple of hip-hop production for decades, but now the New York drill scene is experiencing its own. sample revival. We have entered the era of sample drilling.

Sample drilling is a subsector of New York drilling, and it’s been bubbling for two years. As the name suggests, the subgenre combines classic samples with New York Drill’s signature bass-heavy production, to create a sound that’s both nostalgic and modern. Flipping easily recognizable hits, like Lauryn Hill’s “Ex-Factor” or James Brown’s “Georgia on My Mind,” the songs are digestible and catchy, with plenty of viral appeal. TikTok played a big part in the explosion of the sampling exercise, with many tracks used as a soundtrack for viral trends, and now the movement has caught the attention of mainstream stars like Cardi B, who has hopped on the remix for fellow Bronx rapper Kay Flock’s sample song “Shake It.”

Young drill artists like Kay Flock, B-Lovee, Shawny Binladen and many more have played a pivotal role in promoting the sampling drill over the past few years. One of the biggest songs to emerge from the scene so far is B-Lovee’s “My Everything”. Produced by Cash Cobain, the song samples Mary J. Blige’s “Everything” and has been used over 400,000 times on TikTok and garnered two remixes featuring A Boogie and G Herbo.

Explaining how he gained a deep understanding of the throwback music he samples, Cash Cobain told Complex, “I grew up with my mom, my grandma, my whole family. We all love music, so I just know the music from their youth. It is [music] 60s, 70s, 80s, I know all that shit. All that music was ingrained in me, so when it comes time to make songs, I already know that shit.

Sample has become one of New York’s most popular musical movements, and its future is capped, with a group of impressive young artists leading the way. Here’s a crash course in the seething subgenre.

Louis Theroux delighted internet users by officially joining TikTok – and of course his debut on the platform was to include his viral rap song “My money does not move Jiggle.

More than two decades ago, in 2000, Theroux rapped lines from one of the episodes of his documentary series weird weekends where he traveled to New Orleans to interview the local rap scene and had the chance to write his own lyrics and rap for American radio listeners.

In a recent interview with Amelia Dimoldenberg on Chicken Shop Date, Theroux gave fans a 2022 take on the rap he still remembered impressively with lyrics all these years later which are:

My money don’t shake, don’t shake, it bends/ I wanna see you wiggle, wiggle, that’s for sure/ Makes me wanna dribble, dribble, you know/ Ride in my Fiat/ You really gotta see it/ I’m 6ft 2in in a compact/ No slack but fortunately the seats go back/I have the gift of relaxing/In my head, I feel good/ And I sip red, red wine

Music producers Duke & Jones (@dukeandjones) then added their remix magic to the clip with autotune as well as adding a catchy beat to create the viral TikTok sound everyone loved.

After becoming a TikTok sensation without actually being on TikTok, Theroux (@officiallouistheroux) finally joined the platform and posted a clip of him walking down the street as the caption read, “Late to the party but I made it…” with his rapping serving as the backing track.

Since joining TikTok three days ago, Theroux’s video has received 5.2 million views, 839,000 likes, 330,000 followers as well as thousands of comments from people who expressed their joy at the director of documentaries referencing his viral rapping.

One person said, “THIS SONG WON’T BREATH ME.”

“You took over TikTok before you were even there,” another person wrote.

Someone else added: “Louis you’re gonna have to do the dance I’m afraid Mate.”

“Cancel my therapy appointment, that’s all I need,” replied a fourth person.

“Late?! You ARE the party, Louis!! Welcome,” the official TikTok account commented.

The BBC also wrote: “Our king has arrived”.

Overall, over 900,000 people have used the Duke & Jones remix of Theroux’s rap, including celebrities such as Ant and Dec, Riverdale actors Jade Thirwall, Gino D’Acampo and Ian Wright.

Perhaps we could see Theroux show off his rapping skills once again as it has been announced that he is hosting a new six-part series on BBC Two with his first subject being grime artist Stormzy, and he recently was spotted attending one of his concerts.

Claude Vivier was assassinated in 1983 at the age of 34. The importance of his works has steadily increased in the decades since his death, although they are still too rarely heard in the UK. A weekend of concerts at the Southbank Center includes eight, starting with perhaps Vivier’s greatest achievement, Lonely Child, sung by soprano Claire Booth under the direction of Ilan Volkov.

Cropped: The woman at the window
Dulwich Photo GalleryLondon, May 4 at 4 September
The Girl at the Window by Rembrandt is a treasure of this gallery. Here, the Dutch theme of women framed or lit by windows (also a Vermeer favourite) is updated with artwork by Cindy Sherman, Rachel Whiteread and Ajarb Bernard Ategwa (artwork pictured above). As Tom Hunter’s photograph Woman Reading Possession Order shows, the motif has many modern resonances.

Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life
Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, at 2 October
A retrospective of one of Britain’s most ambitious modern artists, a woman who carved her way into art history by tackling the heavy materials of sculpture. Hepworth’s sculpted and molded forms are like naturally weathered wonders, where the sea echoes through marble caves and abstract sirens sing.

Radical landscapes
Tate Liverpool, May 5 at 4 September
British art has had a love affair with landscape since the days of Turner and Constable. But forget that. This exhibition is not about pastoral escapism but about land rights, the climate crisis and protest, from the images of Turner-nominated Ingrid Pollard belonging to the neon green version of Jeremy Deller’s giant Cerne Abbas.

Jeff Wall
White Cube Mason’s Yard, London, at 25 June
Reality and fiction artfully merge in Wall’s photographic works. Few have done so much to make us realize that a camera can lie as well as a painting. Here, he mixes reports of mink hunting in his hometown of Vancouver with reconstructed memories from his childhood. jonathan jones

TikTok currently has a dance trend hilariously taking over everyone’s “For You” page.

The rap you can hear from the dance trend comes from famous journalist and documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux

There are many reasons why the “Jiggle Jiggle” trend is capturing everyone’s attention and participation. TikTok users are getting addicted to how funny and hilarious it can be. The “My Money Don’t Jiggle, Jiggle” dance trend is made up of very simple dance moves that may be easy for non-dancer TikTok users.

Dancing together in choreography usually with shades, a hooded jacket, and dancing with the serious face in silly choreographed steps.

Jiggle Jiggle Rapper Louis Théroux

If you’ve been using TikTok lately, chances are Louis Theroux’s voice has also stuck in your memory, some of you might even experience LSS or some might have already memorized the steps. In addition to viral videos all over the internet, his infectious rap “My Money Don’t Jiggle, Jiggle” has been featured in several.

It was written by Louis Theroux, a British-American documentary filmmaker and son of famed novelist Paul Theroux, and featured in an episode of his BBC 2 documentary series Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends.

The episode first aired in 2000. Theroux was asked if he remembered the song during an appearance on the YouTube series Chicken Shop Date on February 18 and he immediately went into star rap mode. , as he has done many times before.

TikTok’s dance trend

However, the version of the jiggle-jiggle song we’ve all heard on TikTok already has a beautifully tuned spin-off we’ve all heard. As several people have pointed out, it is no longer played Acappella, thanks to the work of Manchester-based producers Duke and Jones, who are responsible for the change.

Duke and Jones uploaded their music-accompanied video to TikTok on March 16, and it has since received more than 20 million views and 4.7 million likes, indicating that it has been generally accepted by the general public.


@dukeandjones My money won’t move, it bends #louistheroux #ameliadimoldenberg #chickenshopdate #autotune #remix #fyp ♬ My money won’t move – Duke & Jones

Due to the hugely popular trend, Duke and Jones did their own dance cover of “My Money Don’t Jiggle, Jiggle”, stating that it will be their first and likely last dance video.

@dukeandjones Our first and probably last dance video Thanks for all the love of sound ️ #mymoneydontjiggle #autotune #remix #louistheroux #music ♬ My money dont jiggle jiggle – Duke & Jones

The music video features Louis Theroux on CHICKEN SHOP DATE, a show created by host Amelia Dimoldenberg on YouTube.
