Since the release of their Billboard Hot 100 No.1 single "Bad and Boujee," Migos have landed on several notable shows including Ellen, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and Live With Jimmy Kimmel!. On Wednesday (March 29), they touched down at ESPN HQ and sat down with Cari Champion for an interview on SportsCenter.
While on-set with Champion, the trio spoke about the origin of their iconic dance "The Dab." "We created The Dab," said Takeoff.
"We just needed something to break the stage," added Quavo. "We used to always go on stage and be like 'We gotta do this drop. We gotta do this drop on a song called 'Emmitt Smith.' So, we made a song named 'Emmitt Smith' and it just started going crazy. It just started breaking the stage. Every video the producer was like 'Drop man! Y'all gotta do that drop.' At first, it used to be called 'Ugh!' But then, we used to be real fresh and everybody be like 'Look at my Dab. Look at my Dab.' So, we did it at the same time. So, it was really a way of fashion. Dabbing was a way of fashion that turned into a dance."
