What is this song? 'Slide to the left, slide to the right, slide to the front, take a few steps back.' Then it goes 'dance, dance, dance, now stop! Freestyle, freestyle!' That's all I can remember from the song.

The song can either be Cha Cha Slide performed by DJ Casper or Mr. C, the Cha Cha Slide version of Soca Girlz or it can be the Cupid Shuffle by Cupid.

  • DJ Casper
The song Cha Cha Slide is written and performed by DJ Casper who is also known as Mr. C, the Slide Man. DJ Casper wrote the song in April of 1998 taking inspiration from the Chicago stepping movement. On the following year, the second version was recorded and was named Casper Slide Part 2. By September of 2000, the Cha-Cha Slide: The Original Slide Album was released by MOB Music Publishing.

  • Success of the song
The song is also known as a line dance with instructions. With its funky beat, the song was played in clubs, parties, proms, homecoming, skating rinks, in aerobics classes routine and even in weddings. The Cha Cha Slide took the US by storm. It was even played in the NBA and one of the most requested songs of 2000. It ranked 64th on the US Billboard 200, 83rd on the US Billboard Hot 100 and 24th on the US Billboard Hot R&B for the year 2001. It is also a big hit in the United Kingdom being on the top of the UK Singles Chart in 2004. And by November 2005, the Cha Cha Slide album was certified Gold. The song is also popular in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. 

  • Remix
Due to its popularity, the song inspires other version like that of the Soca Girlz, an all girl group from Amsterdam, Netherlands. Another version is the Cupid Shuffle sang by Cupid in 2007. The Cupid Shuffle also ranked in the US Billboard Charts. The song was also remixed by DJ Unk and Fabo which also feature Baby Bash and Pitbull. The club mixes were also released on iTunes in 2009.

Hi, I think I'm looking for the same song, and it's definitely not the cha cha slide. From what I remember, the song goes "follow the instructions, when I say dance, you dance...slide to the right, slide to the left, slide to the front, birng it bring it back...dance dance stop...freestyle". We use the song during our zumba class. Anybody knows the name of this song, please? I can't find it anywhere :s
thanked the writer.
