Cupid Shuffle

Song: Cupid "Cupid Shuffle" (2007)

Louisiana is primarily known for its bounce scene, which has popularized "pounching" (an ecstatic style of booty popping), but in 2007 a local R&B singer name Cupid dropped a song called the "Cupid Shuffle," a song that is accompanied by a clean, family-friendly line dance of the same name.

The Cupid Shuffle dance was originally created by DJ Casper (a.k.a. Mr. C) from "Cha Cha Slide" fame, and it has since become another electric slide-style favorite similar to the Wobble. Apart from wounding up on the Billboard charts, the Cupid Shuffle has also gotten attention from NFL players like Miami Dolphin's Vernon Carey, Ikechuku Ndukwe, and Ronnie Brown, who were all fined $10,000 by the NFL in 2008 for doing the dance after scoring a touchdown at a game against the San Diego Chargers.
