If Cali Swag District has its way, everyone across the country will be doing the dougie. That's the name of the dance movement that the Inglewood, Calif., rap group has fashioned into an infectious first single -- and first hit -- on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Moving 10-9 this week on the chart, "Teach Me How to Dougie" also climbs 9-6 on Hot Rap Songs and graduates after two weeks at No. 1 on Heatseekers Songs to No. 50 on the Billboard Hot 100. Up 13% from last week with 30,000 in sales, the song has sold 184,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and rises 62-48 on Hot Digital Songs.
"This time last year, we weren't on any charts," says Yung, who with fellow rappers Smoove Da General, JayAre and dancer M-Bone comprise Cali Swag District. "This is a dream come true."
