Meet Vinh Nguyen. You may recognize him from the Jabbawockeez. More avid hip-hop fans (#guilty) may know him from Frenemies (with Keone and Mari Madrid!), Super Galactic Beat Manipulators or Movement Lifestyle. Kind of a super impressive resumé, huh?

Nguyen certainly has the moves to back it up, and this week, he released a new choreo video that we can’t stop watching. With the help of fellow Frenemies Kevin Nguyen, Mikey Mesina and Dea Sevilla, Nguyen perfectly captured the intricacies of Lorde’s “Tennis Courts” (Flume remix). If you think about it, Lorde’s music is kind of perfect for lyrical hip hop: Her smooth, almost electronic vocals give the dancers the space to really fill out the movement, while her bordering-on-dub-step base gives them some syncopation to play with.

Aaanywho…I’ll stop rambling and let you watch the video for yourself:

That bass drop, though. Happy Friday!
