When it comes to pop culture and music, Fortnite has become a torchbearer. Aside from the massive in-game concerts, the developers are fond of adding popular songs and their dance moves in-game as emotes.

With Chapter 3 now in full swing and the 19.10 update complete, a few new emotes will soon be coming to the game. According to the leakers, Toni Watson, better known as Tones and I's breakout single "Dance Monkey," is set to become the next big Icon Series emote.

It will become available in the item shop on January 19, 2022, at 7.00 PM Eastern Time. While the developers did upload a video to YouTube to showcase the emote, it has since been unlisted. Thankfully, Flipsiders can watch the video via the tweet above.

Fortnite players like to move it, move it!

With a brand new map, gorgeous cosmetics, and more players than ever before, just one Icon Series emote wasn't going to cut in. In addition to "Dance Monkey", a track made famous by zoo animals will soon be added in-game.

According to the leakers, the hit track "I Like to Move It" by the artists - Reel 2 Real - will soon be added in-game. Although the track was released in 1994, it only gained major traction after being featured in the 2005 film - Madagascar.

While early footage of the upcoming Fortnite Icon Series emote is available, it's unclear when it will be added to the item shop. Since one will already be dropping on January 19, it's unlikely that this one will feature on the same day. Hopefully, the data miners will be able to provide a timeline soon.
