Might there be a new favorite song of YouTuber users that cannot be found on the Disney "Frozen" soundtrack? Meet Iggy Azalea's hit single, "Fancy," and the adorable father-daughter combination that created a very popular lip dub to it.
Jesse Lozano is known to many who listen to his radio show on Los Angeles' KIIS-FM as "Boy Toy Jesse." The on-air personality features his daughter Savannah and his adventures as a single dad in online videos and segments on his show. On Lozano's YouTube channel, the two star in a video that was published last month but is just now gaining popularity, with more than 236,000 views.
"Let's do a lip dub. Let's do 'Frozen,'" suggests Lozano at the beginning of the minute-and-a-half video filmed with a dashcam. "Let's do 'Let It Go.'"
As the father begins to belt out the chorus, his daughter protests the selection.
"No!" Savannah responds. "We have to do real music."
With that, the opening notes of "Fancy" play in the car, and the duo goes line for line through the first minute of the song. About halfway into the routine, Lozano and his daughter throw on hats and continue mouthing the track's lyrics.
The video has more than 2,400 likes compared to 111 dislikes, with many commenters complimenting the father and daughter.
"This is bonding with your daughter!" YouTube user K Wyatt wrote. James Pursell added, "That was awesome!" Another commenter, Nolan Hughes, wrote "FATHER OF THE YEAR!!!!"
It was a few weeks after this video went live that "Fancy" received national attention on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." The TV host engaged actress Emma Stone in a lip-sync battle and picked the rap track as his first song. That segment has been viewed almost 20 million times since it was uploaded on April 28.
"Fancy" is off the Australian artist's first full-length album, "The New Classic," and currently sits at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
