At the moment, not much information has been released about this new emote. What we do know so far is it will be an Icon Series emote. However, the post didn’t indicate how much V-Bucks it would cost players who want to get this emote.
Following the announcement, a lot of Fortnite content creators began posting clips of various characters doing the trend. Similar to other emotes inspired by dance trends, the Jiggle Jiggle emote is spot on with the viral TikTok dance.
There is no release date yet but since it has been officially announced, the emote may arrive soon. Fortnite is also gearing up to enter Chapter 3 Season 4 and there has been talk about the possible theme for the upcoming season.
Before it became a dance, the Jiggle Jiggle was originally just a rap Theroux came up with
Before it became viral on TikTok, “Jiggle Jiggle” was actually just a rap which Theroux wrote a few years ago. However, the clip of him reciting it became trending on TikTok. Soon enough, a duo called Duke and Jones decided to remix Theroux’s interview and released it as a sound on TikTok.
Afterwards, people on the social media application began enjoying the clip. And like what happens to most of the trending sounds on TikTok, a pair of creators decided to turn it into a dance trend.
Jess Qualter and Brooke Blewitt’s dance choreography of the song blew up and now, it’s become a worldwide trend. The choreography which the pair came up with is actually the same dance used in the Jiggle Jiggle emote coming to Fortnite soon.
Now that Jiggle Jiggle is a certified TikTok hit, Theroux went on to release an official version of the song. He collaborated with Duke and Jones to come up with the full-length track.
Additionally, Jason Derulo released an official music video earlier this month on YouTube. It is now available on major streaming services like YouTube and Spotify.
