Tracey Carter, 38, and her 16-year-old daughter Zoe from Goodwood have become social media sensations after sharing their parody of Abba’s infectious hit, Dancing Queen.
Since uploading the clip on Facebook last Friday, it’s gotten over 100 000 views.
“Zoe and I were going to get goods and she started singing, ‘Dancing queen stuck in quarantine’,” says Tracey.
“And I said that was cool. While we were shopping, we were doing the lyrics.
“Later during the day we did it for my husband and he said it was cool. We then wrote it, recorded and in a matter of hours, it all came together.
“By 9pm, we uploaded it on Facebook.”
The video starts with Tracey and Zoe sitting on a bed with a big brown teddy bear between them, and they sing: “Friday night and the lights are low. Stuck at home with no place to go.
“Gotta play our own music, yes we gotta sing cos we’re in quarantine.
“Wish somebody could just stop by, night is young but the risk is high.
The chorus goes: “and gonna wash my hands cos I’m dancing queen, young and sweet stuck in quarantine. Dancing queen, watch her clean all the bad hygiene, oh yeah.
“Elbow greet, no high fives, if we are gonna survive.”
The mom of three says they have been overwhelmed with the positive feedback from all over the world.
“It has been amazing, people from all over the world have been responding, someone even tagging Ellen De Generes,” she says.
“As a family, we understand the severity of the situation and as a family we’ve gone through tough times and always managed to find the joy in everything. We just wanted to share this joy with the world.
“We just launched our second video (yesterday) morning, a parody on the Boyz 2 Men’s I’ll Make Love To You, which is a tribute to President Cyril Ramaphosa, named I’ll Stay Home For You.”
She adds that he track is already a hit: “This video in less than three hours has over 10k views.”
