W.A.F.F.L.E. Crew takes over NYC subway to Missy Elliott’s “Lose Control”
A dance crew has gone viral by bringing back both the 80s and a 2013 Missy Elliotclassic … with a wink to Ciara thrown in for good measure.
The dance collective W.A.F.F.L.E Crew — which stands for “We Are Family For Life Entertainment” – took over a New York City subway train, popping, locking and swinging around poles to “Lose Control.” Each member of the eight-man squad gets their time to shine during the nearly 2 1/2 minute visual, and Missy, herself, took notice.
“This video so much energy I was hyping them up through my phone,” Elliott, 49, tweeted alongside a clip of the now viral video. “They SNAPPED Hard! I Love seeing so many of yall dance to my songs! I loved me some yall.”
Around the 55-second mark, one of the dancers appears to tip the proverbial Kangol to “Lose Control’s” featured guest Ciara with a backwards bend that brings his body within inches of the subway floor, a move the R&B singer has been known to do on occasion.
