Jermaine Dupri Denies Stealing Drake’s Dance Song: I Did Mine First!

Music producer Jermaine Dupri is not here for people saying his latest dance song, Da Sauce, is his way of copying rapper Drake. As you may now, Drake’s dance song Toosie Slide has been taking the world by storm. The song debuted at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart. On the hook, Drizzy sings: 

“It go right foot up, left foot, slide

Left foot up, right foot, slide

Basically, I’m sayin’ either way, we ’bout to slide, ayy

Can’t let this one slide, ayy”

See the video below.

Jermaine Dupri’s dance song, Da Sauce, is also simple and giving listeners the following dance instructions:

“To the right, to the right

To the left, to the left

Now hop and clap your hands to the side

Right foot cross, left foot cross

Right to the front, Right to the side 

Front, side, slide 

Left to the front, Left to the side 

Front, side, slide”

Although Drake isn’t the first rapper to create a dance song, Jermaine Dupri has been facing a little backlash from people who feel that his dance to Da Sauce is a copy of Drake’s Toosie Slide. The So So Def Record Label owner responded to the critics and claimed he actually publicly posted his song first. 

When a social media user told Jermaine Dupri not to respond to the hate he said he just wants people to know the facts. 

What are your thoughts on these two songs? Let us know in the comments.
