I found another video of Chilli of TLC dancing to Soulja Boy in the studio of Atlanta's 107.9 radio station earlier this week. And if you thought she was clowning in the last youtube clip I posted of her dancing at Atlanta's V-103 radio station, you ain't seen nothing yet! She is straight clowning her ass off! A laugh and a half is what she is! And *gasp* she's even sporting a new hairstyle!
Also, Chilli's former fiance and multi-platinum record producer, Dallas Austin has created new urban, southern, hip-hop version--ooh, that kind of rhymed, huh? Damn, I'm good! LOL!--of American Bandstand called Crank Dat based in Atlanta. The show gives young adults a forum to express themselves artistically through music, to introduce their own personal dancing styles as well as learning new ones from others. Think of it as American Bandstand meets The Soul Train line! Yeah, something like that. Chilli and Austin's 10-year-old son Tron are both featured in the promo clip/tv pilot, as well as Big Boi of Outkast, rapper Big Gipp and many others.

If you don't know by now, the 'snap dance' and 'snap music' craze, which originated in the South, but quickly gained popularity after such songs as Laffy Taffy (by ATL-based rap group and one-hit wonder D4L) and Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It (from another ATL-based rap group and two-hit wonder, Dem Franchize Boyz) hit the airwaves. Since then, the 'snap dance' has quickly gone global. Youtube has received over 66 million hits when the words: 'crank dat' or 'soulja boy' is entered in their search engine.
No word yet on when the show will air. You can watch the promo clip below.
