World Dance Videos 2020

We're getting close to the end of 2020, and I've been featuring quite a lot of dance videos this year. So, I thought I'd do one final dance post before the end of the year! This one features several dances from around the world. :)   Iranian Dance 2 by Quick Style (Norway/Iran) First is up is an Iranian dance by the dance group Quick Style. I've actually has this video saved on my "Watch later" playlist on YouTube for a while, but hadn't got round to watching it lol. Quick Style is a hip hop dance crew from Oslo, Norway. They won Norway's Got Talent in 2009 and now travel the world teaching and performing. I belly dance, so like Midde Eastern dances. I think it's cool to see a male dance from Iran. I think it's improvisation mostly. The video was posted in October last year.

American singer Ariana Grande just released a new album. It's her 6th studio album and is called Positions. It was a surprise to many that she was bringing out a new one! She made the announcement only 2 weeks before the release . Positions was released on 30th October and consists of 14 tracks. The lead single is also called positions (written in lower case) and came out on 23rd October, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. It's currently No. 1 in the UK as well. The 2nd single 34 + 35 was released the same day as the album. pov has also charted. Positions is a good album, similar to Ariana's previous releases. Good R'n'B songs with pop, trap and hip hop elements. My favourite tracks are positions, 34 + 35, off the table (with The Weeknd), safety net (featuring Ty Dolla $ign) and nasty. motive which features Doja Cat  , six thirty and west side are is growing on me as well. So here are my fave songs. Most are audios, but I will update the post as and
