As the guitarist of the band Chic and one half of the Chic Organization production/songwriting team with bassist Bernard Edwards, Nile Rodgers was the driving force behind the disco era’s best music. Besides for Chic’s numerous hits (“Le Freak,” “Good Times”) and underrated gems (“My Feet Keep Dancing,” “Real People”), Rodgers, along with Edwards, was behind the sound of Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family” and Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out,” to name a few undeniable classics from that period. And of course the Rodgers hit parade continued into the post-disco era, and the current day. But you already knew all this.

There’s a new hit dance in hip-hop clubs and (pretty much everywhere else) right now, and it’s not the “dougie,” the “cat daddy,” and definitely not the “jerk.” By now we’re sure you’ve heard of the “Shmoney Dance,” made popular by Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda. You might have even seen Team USA buss this one after winning basketball’s World Cup this weekend!
