Earlier this year, Silentó partnered with iLOVEMemphis, DLOW, We Are Toonz, and 99 Percent to launch the Let’s Dance tour, which brought dances like his “Whip/ Nae Nae” to cities around the country. Going into its final few days, the 18-year-old from Atlanta tells EW, “It was the first tour that I’m officially headlining so I had no idea what was going to happen.”

The best show, he says, took place in his hometown where his childhood friends, teachers, and schoolmates came to see him. “Everyone was dancing in the aisles — kids, teens, cousins, moms,” he says. “Whole families coming out and dancing together.”

Up next for the “Watch Me” star, he’ll prepare to graduate high school at the end of May and will “release [new music] when I get out of school.” He confirms that he’s working on a full album, though he won’t reveal with whom he’s working. “They’re all just different songs.” He does, however, promise a dance track with moves ready to rival the “Whip/ Nae Nae.”

April 29 — Washington, D.C., DAR Constitution Hall
