Why Jerusalema Dance Has Become Popular All Over The World
Jerusalema dance has been the talk of the town. It seems like it is the newest way to attaining eternal life such that if you don't know about it, you have missed out real big.
Interestingly enough, there are certain people who know nothing about it despite the fact that it has become the most charming song in the world.
The song has sparked emotions around the world with everyone dancing a jig to the song. I am pretty sure that even babies have danced to it while in their mother's wombs. They are probably going to be the best choreographers in their generation.
Suffice to say, sugar is to tea what song is to dance. There are songs that have reached the mainstream media just because of the dance. "Jerusalema" is no exception.
Are you the only visitor in town? Do you know what is trending? Well, it seems like it's time to strip off some naivety from you.
If you have just been dancing not knowing the reason behind the popularity of the song, then this is the time to unravel some truth behind the popularity of the hit track.
"Jerusalema" is actually a song of lamentation for God to take the singer to the celestial city. Heavenly city to be precise.
It is a song by South African DJ Master KG featuring South African vocalist Nomcebo Zikode.
Here are a few reasons why the song has become so popular:
1. Unique dance styles
Some dance styles have become so famous to an extent that they overshadow the songs they accompany.
In this case, it is said that a group of friends in Angola shot a video of themselves while dancing to the song.
The next video was shot by dancers in portugal and since then, the video has gone viral over the internet.
Several people have been inspired by the unique dance moves. This has seen most choreographers add some taste to it and hence making it spread far and wide.
2. The Internet has made it possible to spread the song.
If you would want to spread any information across the world in seconds, then the internet is the best tool.
Jerusalema Dance has been popularised by passionate dancers who have leveraged on the availability of the mainstream media.
These include: YouTube, Facebook, Spotify, Vimeo among others. All these have made the song to be known all over the world.
3. It has been endorsed by Presidents and Priests.
For a song/dance to be approved by a president and moreso a priest, then it must have touched their hearts.
And not only that, for the song to reach the heads of state and the clergymen, then it must have spread and become popular.
One of the presidents who approved the song and dance include President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa.
4. The song is appealing to both Christians and the Secular world.
The mere mention of "Jerusalema" does not make it a Christian song. Nevertheless, some of the best fans of the hit track are Christians who have found the song to be interesting.
Even in churches, nuns and priests are dancing to it. Boys and girls alike are twisting their tender bones so that they are not left out.
The secular world has not been left out too. In fact, they seem to be the best of the best fans who are excited for having found some new dance moves.
Do not be surprised if you see the dance being incorporated in songs that will be released in the coming few months.
5. The message of the song
As earlier on mentioned, the song is a lamentation by the singer expressing a strong desire to God to be taken to the heavenly city.
This is no ordinary message. Most Christians would gladly receive it knowing too well that it speaks of a heavenly city that many long for.
Anybody else despite of the religion knows that heaven is portrayed as a beautiful city where there is joy. The city is full of gold. Flowing with milk and honey.
With all that in mind, you would simply join in the dance as you look forward to that time when you will enter the heavenly city.
Why do you find the song/dance interesting? Is it worth the fame? Well, you can do nothing about it even if it bores you.
But like many other dance moves, it will soon fade away and another will come.
In the meantime, you can say something about it. What else is the reason behind its popularity?
