Looking for your Dab emoji?
The most trending and the most awaited emoji nowadays is the Dab emoji. Ever since the trend of the Dab came out, (thank you for that Migos) people have gone crazy with the Dab. It has often been associated with the bottle flip challenge. People would do the ‘Dab’ after they successfully completed a bottle flip. Sadly, this emoji doesn’t exist yet.
