The song and the video became popular in 2014 among Vine users, which led to the "Shmoney dance" meme (such as "Where They At Tho?", "21", and more).[4] One line from the song, "About a week ago!" appeared in the vast majority of these Vines and played a large role in the spread of the song. In July 2014, Beyoncé did the dance move on a venue of her On the Run Tour.[18] The move was also performed by NFL receiver Brandon Gibson after a touchdown.[19]

Drake used the song while hosting the 2014 ESPY Awards.[20][21]
