Cupid's New Dance Craze Lands Just in Time for ESSENCE Festival

Dance party king Cupid might start the next summer dance craze with "Wham Dance".

Cupid, the R&B singer who is most famous for his 2007 hit “Cupid Shuffle”, which became a staple at weddings, clubs and family gatherings, is gearing up for his ESSENCE Festival Family Day performance with his new single “Wham Dance.”

Featuring rapper Mystical, a fellow Nola native, Cupid’s new song encompasses all that New Orleans is famous for, including the big brass bands and the eccentric southern energy we all love. If you’re nervous about not knowing how to do the “Wham Dance”, don’t worry, Cupid shows us how it’s done.
