Harlem takes back the Harlem Shake.  A new VIDEO came out yesterday (2/25/2013) with a group doing the reeeeeeaaaaaaaaaal HARLEM SHAKE.

Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club join in the Harlem Shake fun.  Charlamagne, Angela Yee, DJ Envy take us back to the original Harlem Shake.  So this is what rhythm looks like…

With so many videos and comments the past couple of weeks about the Harlem Shake, I was wondering if any of these videos with millions of views on Youtube are making any money?

I came across this article today by Victor Luckerson, a reporter-producer for Time.com covering business and money, who writes a clear explanation about the copyright and who is getting what from the Harlem Shake frenzy.  The exact amount is unknown at this time but will most likely take the lead over last years “Gangnam Style, viral sensation that earned Korean pop star Psy and his handlers a reported $870.000 from YouTube as revenue.”

Mainly he writes  “Baauer and his label get some of the ad revenue, as does Youtube.  The people shooting the videos get no money because they are using copyrighted content.”

ITunes sales have sky rocketed with Baauer’s Harlem Shake single, topping the iTunes charts and recently debuted at No. 3 in the UK singles charts.

Harlem born and raised rapper/actor John O responds in his own blunt words to the new ‘Harlem Shake’ viral craze.  Keeping it real he says “The song sucks, the video sucks and as a person from Harlem I’m a little bit offended by this because people from all around the world think that’s how you do the Harlem Shake, and it’s not.”

I disagree with him on the song I think Baauer’s track is a good electronic, dubstep track that definitely got peoples attention.  I also think some of the ‘Harlem Shake 2013’ videos out there are funny (See our previous post – Harlem Shake Tutorial.)  

Every day there are more videos popping up on YouTube from all around the globe.  There have been a lot of people reacting in Harlem  lately as you may have seen in this video Harlem Reacts to ‘Harlem Shake’ Videos where a variety of Harlem locals are interviewed on 125th Street.  This video was made by Chris McGuire and went out to all the bloggers and NY media 2 days ago and already has 2,473,925 views and counting.  

That being said, John says what most of us and probably everybody in Harlem are thinking in his video response to the Harlem Shake.

keeping it 100 percent with John O, check out his video response here.                                  THE HARLEM SHAKE DOWN CLICK ON THIS LINK

Even though it is very amusing to see a school in Minnesota doing the Harlem Shake in the snow, or a nursing home in Florida doing the Harlem Shake on Youtube, let’s remember what this dance is.

What is it?  One of the best posts on this topic was recently posted by a friend to Harlem Condo Life, Harlem Trends who blogged,

Not to get to preachy, but it actually is a real dance.  The Harlem Shake is an Old School move and has been around for a long time.  Though it has spiraled into a whole new media frenzy with Brooklyn’s dubstep musical artist Baaúer, let’s try and get at least some of the moves right.

You can spot the real dance move being done, as we have been posting about here at Harlem Condo Life on twitter @HarlemHCL for the last couple months, in only a couple of the videos.  Some are really good, some are just ok.  But most all of them are lacking at least one person doing the actual dance.

So that being said if you want to learn this move, below is a tutorial.                  (Watch some of our favorite Harlem Shake VIDEOS below)
