The music video features Zlatan and various street dancers, who show off their impressive legwork as they zanku throughout the colorful music video. "Give dem, give dem, zanku dance," sings Zlatan throughout the pulsating track.


The zanku is steadily taking over as the go-to afrobeats move, just like the popular shaku shaku when it was first introduced—though we must say the zanku is a bit more intimidating. We'll need tons of more practice (and perhaps exercise) before we can pull off this level of leg work confidently.
