History: Polo Frost has had viral success twice already. His single from five years ago, "Best Ever," featuring Ann Arbor musicians Ayo and Teo has 12 million views on YouTube. More recently it got another boost and became a popular "challenge" on TikTok, where influencers with hundreds of thousands of followers dance to a clip of the song.
