Lauren Alaina and Lainey Wilson have a viral new TikTok dance to go along with their Thicc As Thieves duet. And Alaina has recruited both Kane Brown and Blake Shelton to give it a try.
In the videos, Shelton takes up the task enthusiastically, even going rogue by busting out his own bizarre moves, while Brown seems a little more apprehensive and embarrassed.
"This guy has had my back since we were kids. I can't believe I got him to do this. Love you, Kane Brown," Alaina wrote on social media, sharing the video of the dance.
Alania and Brown attended Lakeview Middle School together in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia and sat next to each other in choir class.
Alania toured with Shelton on his Friends & Heroes Tour in 2019-2020, so it makes sense that the duo would appear on a tour bus performing the new dance.
She captioned, “Me: Hey Blake, will you do my Thicc As Thieves dance with me??? Blake: No. Me: Sure, be cool if you did….”
We’re excited to see who she taps next…
Thicc as Thieves comes off the track list of Alaina's newly released EP, Unlocked. The six-song collection marks her first release since signing to Big Loud Records.
Co-written by Alaina with Rocky Block, Luke Bryan, Dallas Davidson, Jacob Durrett and Parker Welling, the song places an emphasis on Alaina and Wilson’s cheeky friendship.
"Lainey and I have been talking about doing a song together forever. I love her so much. I love her style, her brand, everything. And we're sisters, honestly," Alaina told Taste of Country. "So, we're trying to figure out what song we should do, because the one thing people notice about us... we have multiple things in common, but one people notice a lot," she continued. "I don't think there's ever been a female version of [Trace Adkin’s] Honky Tonk Badonkadonk. So, I called her and was like, 'What do you think of this idea?' And she was like, 'I love it, let's do it.'"
The song pays tribute to Luke Bryan’s Country Girl (Shake it For Me).
He told Taste Of Country, “I love it. I was very flattered. When you look at Lainey… I mean, I think Lainey is just so great for country music. And I’ve been a fan of Lauren Alaina. She has one of the best voices in the world.”
"My biggest thing is, this is a fun song for them. Country Girl (Shake It for Me) was a fun song for me. It was a fun song for the country girls out there that were shaking it. And their song is a fun song for the girls that got a little somethin' to shake," Bryan added.
