Silento achieved some local support with his song before he even recorded it. He told Tunecore
: "I had been singing it and dancing to it in school already. People were always asking me to do it, they already knew it."
So when the song began to go viral, it was no surprise to the rapper: "When people are asking you do something repeatedly, it's like, you just know. People liked it, so I kept doing my dances!"
