Sarah Geronimo’s 2015 hit single “Tala” eventually became a dance challenge during the holidays.
Through the hashtags #Taladancechallenge or #Talachallenge, numerous people including celebrities started to try the latest dance craze. Many made their own version of the dance video which became an instant hit on social media.
Despite being a song of the past, the nearly five-year-old hit has been making a comeback this past few weeks. The catchy lyrics and easy choreography appealed to the Filipino public, particularly to members of the LGBT community.
In a recent interview, Geronimo told she had high hopes for the song when it was first released. She envisioned “Tala” to be a dance trend or craze nearly five years ago.
“Alam niyo po, in-envision ko na magiging dance craze ‘tong kantang ‘to. Gusto ko itong vibe ng song na ‘to, maging dance craze. Everybody is dancing to this song — at, wow, power of claiming it, nagkatotoo!”
She also thanked her fans who made her fulfill her dream for it, which was part of her best-selling album “The Great Unknown” in 2015.
Among the first few celebrities to try were Kapamilya young star Loisa Andalio, Maris Racal, and Sue Ramirez.
Former Sexbomb member Izzy Trazona and her son also made their own renditions, which like the previously mentioned, stood out as well.
And most recently, the famous celebrity couple Maine Mendoza and Arjo Atayde are the latest stars who made an attempt at the viral dance craze.
The 24-year-old actress-TV host utilized the video-sharing platform Tiktok and recorded her dancing with Arjo. Their sweet special number of the couple instantly became a hit.
Maine posted the video on Twitter at 9:44 pm last night, Saturday, January 4. As of 12:00 midnight, it already had over 82,000 likes and over 11,000 retweets.
