There was only one way to close out the epic and unpredictable journey that was the “In My Feelings” saga of 2018: Shiggy.Â
The online personality behind @theshiggyshow on Instagram started a worldwide dance challenge that’s resulted in countless videos â plus a couple arrests and at least one person who got hit by a car. Thanks to his handiwork â and his role in helping propel the song to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks in a row â Shiggy scored an epic cameo in Drake’s official “In My Feelings” music video.
In this homage to New Orleans directed by his go-to magic-maker Karena Evans, Drake acts, dances, and acts some more alongside La La Anthony as the famous Kiki and the phenomenal Phylicia Rashad as her mother. There are cameos from NOLA bounce queen Big Freedia and the City Girls, and the end credits feature clips from viral #InMyFeelings challenge videos. It’s Shiggy who steals the show, however, with the carefree dance moves that started this whole thing in the first place.Â
Towards the end, Shiggy flexes his acting skills in a scene with Drake, and fans were ecstatic about his moment in the spotlight.Â
One dance literally changed Shiggy life forever. Thatâs wild.

Damn Shiggy really out here living the dream and getting big love from all over the world and all he had to do was be himself and be consistent.
