More than likely, you have heard their music on the radio. In fact, their latest “Drop That #NaeNae” is one of the most addictive tunes you will ever hear. We Are Toonz is one of the hottest groups today. Recently, I had the opportunity to chat it up with the group about this new dance craze and here is what they had to say…
(Q) Hey! How are you? Tell me a little more about ‘the NaeNae’…
Hey! We’re great right now! The NaeNae is a fun celebration dance and song but also like a movement. The fans have a lot of fun with it. From athletes to celebrities young & old, all love it. Especially young school age kids! They also use the dance as a fun rebellion at school by dancing in the halls or in class when the teacher isn’t looking.
(Q) How did you come up with this dance?
Levi : I was in the basement with another friend and I was trying to come up with a funny skit for our next performance. The idea was to mimic a fun girl in the club trying to dance. We did the little rock then I put my hand up and the NaeNae was born. When we put the video on Vine it got 300 likes and we knew we had something! The rest took off from there.
(Q) I am loving ‘Drop That #NaeNae’ but I am also loving ‘Yahh’ which is the follow up to that song. What inspired you to come with a follow up to the original Nae Nae song?
Callamar: Yahh! Is a bragging statement cause all our fans together made this movement. This is a song for the fans, it’s the anthem for the new nation that’s come out of the NaeNae movement. Also when we dance and do freestyle moves we (us and the fans of the movement) say Yahh!
(Q) Out of the many artists and bands in the world today, who do you want to work with the most and why?
KB: We want to work with Outkast, Chris Broen, Future, Meek Mils, Sevrn Streetr , Bando Jones, 2 Chains. Artist like that! Fun artists!
