While she did step away from music for a while, Sarah Geronimo’s comeback single, Dati-Dati, did what absolutely needed to be done.

A prophetess once said, “I gave these b*tches two years, now your time’s up.” And pop princess Sarah Geronimo took that to heart. After spending the past couple of years in new music hiatus, the OPM legend finally made her long-awaited comeback in 2022 with the release of her single Dati-Dati. The catchy pop-funk number showcased how Sarah was still in her A-game despite spending the past few years focusing on other priorities. Seeing Sarah G back on the ASAP stage belting and dancing to the track felt like the old days as she showed the world how it’s really done.
But aside from Sarah being a natural on stage, one thing that has caught our eye about Dati-Dati is its choreography, created by Georcelle Dapat-Sy. The moves during the chorus are relatively simple enough to do, but when done right, makes you look smooth and sensual that perfectly matches the vibe of the track. It’s no wonder then that the track has been making the rounds on social media and in particular TikTok where the Dati-Dati Challenge has seen the song be used over 125,000 times. Here are some local stars who have been bopping along to Sarah G’s funky comeback.
VIVOREE AND JOAO CONSTANCIA

As a Popster herself, Vivoree more than gave justice to her idol. And the inclusion of Joao made it even better.

When people say that Sheena Belarmino is a Gen Z star to watch out for, this cover proves it. The 17-year-old served face and moves.

Are we that surprised Kyline would body the challenge? Her cover is as addicting as the LSS-including track.

If Sarah Geronimo would crown an heir apparent, we have a feeling Sheena’s going to be on the shortlist. BINI’s main dancer is just so effervescent when she moves.

A new gen pop star slaying a dance to a song by a P-pop icon? P-pop’s future is in great hands.

Awra is giving us the low-key version given that she’s at the movie theater. But she still did well and that green light makes for the perfect background.
