Shiggy wants his money.
“In My Feelings” continues its chart domination, thanks in part to Shiggy, the man behind the “In My Feelings” challenge. There were rumors that Drake paid the comedian $250,000 to thank him for starting the viral dance trend that helped take the song to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
However, Shiggy took to Instagram Live on Wednesday (July 25) to deny those claims. “You think he walking around with a checkbook in the club?” he joked.

Later, Shiggy and Drake decided to have some fun with the rumors. The Instagram star posted a video confronting the 6 God about his compensation. “It’s on the way,” said Drake before trying to justify the delay. “When you send out a wire, it’s like seven or 10 days.”
“You either gotta give me the $250,000 or plus ASAP, or you gotta make that rumor go away,” Shiggy told Drake, who assured him that it’s on the way: “I got you.”
Drake recently shot a video for “In My Feelings” in New Orleans with Big Freedia and Shiggy himself. The Scorpion song remains No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week.
