A heart-melting video has taken TikTok by storm, featuring a little boy and his infectious dance moves to Shakira's iconic “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)”.

Shared by user @keishee, the clip has garnered over one-million likes and shows just why the internet loves a good dance party.

The video opens with the little guy glued to the TV screen. Shakira's vibrant energy from the music video fills the room, and our tiny dancer is captivated. But this isn't just passive viewing. He's taking notes.

Suddenly, the boy turns away from the screen, a determined glint in his eyes. He's ready to showcase his newfound moves. 

With arms raised high, he starts bopping and swaying, mimicking the energetic hip shakes he just witnessed. With a serious look on his face, his concentration is apparent, but his joy is infectious!

You can't help but smile as he throws himself into the dance, completely oblivious to any self-consciousness. Take a look at the clip below:
