Watch ILoveMemphis Demonstrate How to ‘Hit the Quan’
ILoveMemphis has become an Internet sensation with the success of his song and dance “Hit the Quan.” The dance has been attempted by everyone from the girls in Fifth Harmony to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Memphis stopped by the Rolling Stone office to demonstrate how to best perform the routine, inspired by rapper Rich Homie Quan’s “Flex” video, in which he performs smooth and simple pelvic thrust–like motions.
“You hit the Quan however you want to hit the Quan,” says Memphis, while getting down low and swinging his arms. “It’s just moving your arms and getting down low.” Afterwards, Memphis explains each part of the song’s breakdown, slowly showing off the many moves that make up the dance before speeding it up.
“Hit the Quan” has become especially popular and heavily imitated on Vine, following in the footsteps of other viral dances like the Shmoney and Whip/Nae-Nae.
