In-the-know Premiership players, Beyonce and, erm, SpongeBob SquarePants all have one thing in common - they know how to do the 'Crank That' Dance. The infectious dance has spawned numerous remixes and encouraged a staggering 16 million people to view the 'How to Crank That - Instructional video' on YouTube. The man behind this furore is Soulja Boy Tell'em and his hot debut single "Crank That (Soulja Boy)".
Soulja Boy Tell'em is the hottest rapper in the States. His debut single "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" has been #1 for seven weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, Hot Airplay, Digital and Ringtone charts. That's quite an achievement for a 17 year old who has only been signed to Interscope Records for a year.
The track "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" is ready to make its mark in the UK, when it is released on December 10th, 2007 through Collipark Music/Interscope Records. The track will also be digitally available from November 5th exclusively on iTunes. The single includes a remix from Travis Barker (Blink 182/+44).
Part of Soulja Boy Tell'em's magic is what he brings to the scene as an entertainer. With his personalized Soulja Boy Sunglasses and unique dance routines, he's putting the fun back into hip hop. Along with putting his own shows and songs together plus producing all his own music, Soulja Boy Tell'em is a rare breed.
