Hip-Hop dance duo, Ayo & Teo, have recently released the music video for their hit single “Rolex”. The Michigan-born brothers previously received recognition for their viral social media videos and appearing in the music videos of other artists. Now, they’ve decided to take their careers to the next level and become full-fledged artists themselves.
If you haven’t seen any of their videos on social media then you might’ve noticed them dancing in Usher’s music video for “No Limit” or “Chris Brown’s “Party”. But just in case you haven’t seen those either, then you have been living on another planet to have not heard their single “Rolex”. It’s been dominating the radio and the internet ever since they released it a couple months ago.
“Rolex” has received over 91 million streams on YouTube and is steadily moving up the charts. When the song starts and people hear “I Just want a Rollie, Rollie, Rollie with a dab of ranch” they go crazy. It’s an infectious song that will make you get up and want to dance. Many people have posted their own videos dancing to the song, including celebrities like famous model Hailey Baldwin and Kylie Jenner.
The inspiration for “Rolex” came from a simple trip to the mall. The infamous expensive timepieces caught the eye of the brothers. They were captivated by the different colors of the faces. After sending a quick photo to their manager, they received a reply instructing them to leave the store immediately. Teo went into the mall’s restroom and used the T-Pain’s popular Auto-Tune app to record the snippet of “Rollie, Rollie, Rollie, with a dab of ranch”. Then the brothers went to the studio to create the song.
The duo started dancing in the basement of their Ann Arbor, Michigan home for fun. They became famous after posting videos of themselves dancing and showing love to popular artists. Now, those artists are giving the love back by placing them in their music videos and performances.
Since the success of their dancing careers and their single “Rolex”, the brothers have moved to Atlanta, GA. They enjoy all of the traveling that their careers and newfound fame have allowed them to do. However, their assure us all that they’re still down-to-Earth kids who just like to have fun. The types who like to go to the movies, do laser tag, or hit up the go-karting track. They were stuck in Michigan for so long that now they’re loose and taking advantage all
Ayo & Teo are now working on their debut project. Their music video for “Rolex” has already reached over 6 million views, after being out for less than two weeks. They’re interested in keeping up their momentum and putting out danceable songs. Why not? If dancing is what the people want, then dancing is what they shall get.
