Shiggy denies receiving a huge sum of money from Drake. His clarification came after he and the rapper met at a nightclub in LA.
Following the two artists' meeting, fans were quick to assume that Drake gave Shiggy $250,000 for the success of "In My Feelings" Challenge. Shiggy previously popularized the Do The Shiggy on Instagram. However, Shiggy said that he and Drake only talked and took pictures that night.
In the video that he uploaded on his social media account, Shiggy also sarcastically asked his followers how Drake could give him $250,000 when it is impossible that he always has his checkbook with him.
Shiggy is the one responsible for choreographing the movies in "In My Feelings." He has also been credited for starting the challenge on social media. In June, Shiggy uploaded a video of himself dancing to Drake's track, and it became viral after receiving over 5 million views on Instagram.
DJ Akademiks, who was also involved in the making of "In My Feelings," also seconded Shiggy's statement. On his Twitter account, he reposted an article about the Canadian rapper giving Shiggy cash and said that that it is "Big Cap." The DJ also said that he got confirmation that the story was fake.
Celebrities Do 'In My Feelings' Challenge
Since its release, several celebrities have already taken on the "In My Feelings" Challenge on Instagram. Most recently, Millie Bobby Brown and Noah Schnapp performed the challenge right outside a car.
The Stranger Things stars did all the moves flawlessly before they broke out in laughter.
"In My Feelings" is featured in Drake's Scorpion album, which was released last month. There are 25 songs in the album, and they have all been massive hits. Scorpion also broke streaming records on last week's chart, and it received 391 million streams and 29,000 sales in the United States alone.
