Jalaiah Harmon has 14 years old, lives in a small house in a quiet suburb just outside Atlanta. On September 25, 2019 after school, she went back home and had asked a friend of Instagram, Kaliyah Davis , 12 years, to publish a post together. The song he had chosen with care and without hesitation: the Lottery, the rapper of Atlanta K Camp. He had created a sequence of moves and difficult for the chorus, with the wave and the h whoa, shot the video in the bathroom, then made it a double-which moves together with Kaliya, and he has posted before on Funimate (where it has more than 1,700 followers) and on Instagram where he has more than 20 thousand followers.

For Jalaiah is not a game. It is his dream, to dance, to create, to study dance viral, collaborates with colleagues with whom the public choreography of the original.
It's been a while. The Renegade has infected all. They started to dance in the high school, during meetings, in the network, in all of the bedrooms of the world. Have iiziato dancing with the stars social. the Use, Kourtney Kardashian, David Dobrik and the members of the band Korean K-pop, the Stray Kid s. Finally came Charli D'amelio , the most popular of all on the platform TikTok, with almost 26 million followers. Ballad, Renegade has entered into the Olympus. But Jalaiah has remained unknown.

TikTok, is one of the greatest video app in the world, synonymous with the culture of the dance. And yet, many of his choreographies are the most popular, as well as Renegade, Holy Moly Donut Shop, Mmmxneil and Cookie Shop, come from the young creators african americans that post on a myriad of app to the less known. Most of these dancers is identified as Dubsmashers. Using the app Dubsmash and other like Funimate, Likee and Triller then publish (or cross-posting) the video on Instagram, where they reach a wider audience. When, and if, the dance becomes popular enough, get to TikTok. Or better, TikTok if appropriate.

But gives no credit. "TikTok is like a Dubsmash mainstream," said Kayla Nicole Jones , star of YouTube and musical artist of 18 years, in an interview with the New York Times. "Take Dubsmash, and run away". the Polow da Don , producer, songwriter and rapper who has worked with Usher and Missy Elliott , said: "Dubsmash grab the things at the root when they are culturally relevant. TikTok are children of the suburbs, things take on when they are already in style, and if the lead in their communities."
When I posted on Instagram, Jalaiah has got about 13 thousand views. A few, but people started to copy it. In October, a user by the name @global.jones brought him in on the TikTok, by modifying some of the moves, and at the end of the dance spread like a fire. No one has given credit to Jalaiah. But she did not give up. He asked the influencers of taggarla. It has been ignored. He created his account TikTok where he published a video in which a search on Google of "who has created the dance, Renegade?" in an attempt to put things in the clear. "I was angry," she told the Nyt.
Be deprived of credit by TikTok it means to be robbed of real opportunities. In 2020, the virality means of income: the creators of popular dances, such as Backpack Kid or Shiggy , accumulate the following online and become influencers, which means you have access to sponsorships, the media, and maybe the possibility to extract in some dance school.. Get credit is not easy. The dances are virtually impossible to claim it legally as their own.
TikTok was introduced in the United States only a year and a half ago. The rules, in particular those related to credit, are still in a definition phase. But for the Dubsmashers and for the community dance of Instagram, it is common courtesy to tag the creators or musicians, and use the hashtag to track the evolution of a dance. On the 17th of January, tensions were raised after Barrie Segal , head of content of Dubsmash, has published a series of videos asking Charli D'amelio to give credit to D1 Nayah, over a million followers on Ig and popular dancer of Dubsmash, for her choreography: Donut Shop.

who snapped the hardest? vc: @_.xoxlaii ??
The war broke out, and had a happy ending. After thousands of exchanges in TikTok Room, mutual accusations and suspicions of racial (the dances of african-americans are always shooting from the whites that do not give credit to the inventors) Charli D'amelio and other stars have started to appoint the creators in their captions. And the thing was mutual. Jalaiah continues to publish video on the dance Funimate, Dubsmash and Instagram. Do not harbour any resentment towards Charli d'amelio, who, in the meantime, in a post, said: "I Am so happy to give credit to Jalaiah and I'd like to work with her." The dream come true.
social media platforms are now intertwined, with the new feature to each other, recognize, appoint. TikTok, Instagram and Dubsmash has opened the way, given the example. It is a question of millions of exchanges. Million shares, this is the most beautiful dance in the world.
