After their song was released in August, the duo went from glory to glory, signing to Atlantic Records. The contract guaranteed an official “Juju” release to digital retailers and audio streaming services on Sept. 30.

Talking about how “Juju” spread like wildfire to become a household name, Zay told GeniusGenius:

“The Co-CEO of Fresh the Clowns called me like “Zay your track hot, I saw the dance and I want to start a trend.”

At the moment the song wasn’t poppin’, but we shot a video and the next day it blew up. It had like 18,000 views in one day and then it hit 100,000 and it was on all these dance pages. After a week it was popular.

As far as the #TZAnthemChallenge that came from everybody doing it, Fresh the Clowns, little kids. The main three people were Fresh the Clowns, Hannah and then this 9-year-old little caucasian girl.

Then we started seeing cheerleaders doing it, then IG celebrities and then actors. After LeBron’s son did it, we knew we had something.”

According to Nielson Music, the song roars to a No. 3 re-entry on R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs, recording 16.7 million U.S. streams for the week ending Oct. 13.

“Juju” currently stands at No. 3 on R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs Sales with up 33 percent to 41,000 digital downloads.

An excerpt from “Juju” lyrics:

[Hook: Zay Hilfiger]
JuJu on the beat
JuJu on that beat
JuJu on that, JuJu on that, JuJu on that beat
Now slide, drop
Hit dem folks, don’t stop, aye
Don’t stop, aye
Don’t stop, aye
Running man on that beat, aye
Running man on that beat, aye
Running man on that beat, aye
Running man on that beat
Now do your dance, do your dance, do your dance, aye
You ugly
You your daddy’s son
