After dancer Mette Towley mesmerized the world in N.E.R.D and Rihanna’s “Lemon” video, which was choreographed by “Single Ladies” mastermind JaQuel Knight, the Internet has wasted no time in getting in on the #LemonDanceChallenge.
From Justin Timberlake getting a lesson from Towley and Pharrell Williams on the sidewalk, to Fenty Beauty’s social media editors swatching foundation and slicking their lips with Gloss Bomb to the track’s bass-heavy beat, the challenge has gone completely viral.
But the most impressive of all comes courtesy of Harlem-based dancer Denee “Dnay B” Baptiste, who is not only one of Beyoncé’s dancers but also 37 weeks pregnant!
Wearing a bright yellow jacket, bump-bearing white crop top, and low-slung distressed denim, Baptiste serves up her own freestyle “Lemon” dance, body-waving, twerking, dabbing, fancy-footwork–ing, and head-banging her afro to spellbinding effect.
“Ima dance this baby right on out,” wrote the self-taught hip-hop dancer in the caption of her viral Instagram post.
Demonstrating strength, grace, and pretty much being super woman, Baptiste’s moment in the spotlight is a great reminder that pregnancy can be sexy, empowering—and fun.
