‘Chicken Noodle Soup’ Sparks Teenage Dance Craze via YouTube
Harlem teens' song about the tummy-soothing soup has spawned a chicken-like dance phenomenon.
Two Harlem teenagers have sparked a new dance craze thanks to the song they recorded entitled “Chicken Noodle Soup.” Nineteen-year-old Troy “DJ Webstar” Ryan and 16-year-old Bianca “Young B” Dupree wrote the song for Webstar’s DJing gigs, and it promptly became a hit at some NYC teen venues. In it, sirens flank the track’s eponymous chorus, to which teens have been seen on YouTube dancing a hip-hop version of the chicken dance. With arms and elbows flapping, feet spread wider than knees, and “Cotton-Eyed Joe”-meets-running-man moves, the dance is receiving mixed reviews in online communities, with some critics even pitting the East Coast against the South for hip-hop’s finest steps.
