'The Prancing Elites Project' Stars Pick The 5 Ultimate Anthems to Prance To
You need the perfect soundtrack to prance like a pro. Just ask the stars of Oxygen's The Prancing Elites Project, which follows a troupe of five gay, gender-bending dancers based in Mobile, Ala. Fresh off news that the show was greenlit for a second season, the squad picks its favorite prance anthems.
Kareem Davis, 24 Katy Perry, "Roar"
"The message it sends is empowering, especially to those that have been bullied or put down."
Adrian Clemons, 24 The Gap Band, "Outstanding"
"Growing up, my mom used to always play this song around the house. I love lead singer Charlie Wilson's voice. The chorus makes you want to get up."
Jerel Maddox, 24 Boyz II Men, "Motownphilly"
"It gives me everlasting life. It has a parade feel. The brass tones remind me of a band, and as we all know, we love band music."
Tim Smith, 24 Ne-Yo, "She Knows"
"It makes me feel like I'm on top of the world, like I can hold Ms. Beautiful -- me -- down."
Kentrell Collins, 27 August Alsina, "Kissing on My Tattoos"
"The slow R&B sound sends a chill through my body that I have to release through dancing -- or better yet, prancing!"
