Sharpe posted the full dance back in December of last year, giving viewers a step-by-step tutorial.
In her music video, Doja Cat replicates Sharpe’s signature dance moves. Sharpe makes an appearance at the end of the music video, letting loose in the middle of a disco-lit dance floor.

The music video has gotten loads of accolades online, with some Twitter users already dubbing it the best music video of the year.
It’s not uncommon to see celebrities and TikTok users taking part in the “Say So” dance trend. In December, actress Laura Dern crashed her daughter’s TikTok to show off her own moves to the catchy tune.

Many gave kudos to Doja Cat for making it a priority to include Sharpe in her video. Sharpe’s recognition comes after a New York Times article spotlighted how Jalaiah Harmon, creator of the popular Renegade dance, went noticeably uncredited as Renegade picked up steam on TikTok.
Vox first reported how Harmon’s invented choreography went unnoticed.
“One of the most perennial questions of the past decade on social media—who owns a viral dance?—has naturally resurfaced on a platform where dancing has the potential to make you a millionaire,” Vox wrote.
Since the New York Times article, Harmon has received increased recognition for her talents and dance contributions.
The Doja Cat one is cool because Haley invented the dance that made the song popular on TikTok and pushed it into the Top 40, and she does it in the mv pic.twitter.com/GPo3vzvC6H— trey taylor (@treytylor) February 27, 2020
Sharpe, who did not immediately Daily Dot’s request for comment, thanked Doja Cat on Instagram for including her in the “Say So” video.
“This is unreal,” Sharpe said in her Instagram post. “It was just such a dream.”
