While Drake’s “In My Feelings” Challenge and Ciara‘s “Level Up” Challenge are sweeping the internet these days, Daddy Yankee’s “Dura” Challenge from earlier this year is still lingering, keeping people on their feet — or in Oprah’s case, on the couch.

On Sunday (Aug. 5), the Puerto Rican urban singer shared a behind-the-scenes video of Oprah Winfrey jamming to his song during a summer photo shoot. Wearing a hat and cool sunnies, the renowned TV host and actress is seen smiling from ear-to-ear and shaking her shoulders to the beat of Yankee’s infectious track.

“Dura,” which was released in mid-January 2018, gave Yankee his ninth No. 1 on the Latin Airplay chart (dated March 17). The #DuraChallenge quickly became a viral sensation, where tons of people from all over the world shared their best moves to the song.
