The film became quite popular all over the globe, and grossed more than $57 million worldwide, which also helped Chambers to increase his net worth significantly. Also in 1984, the sequel “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo” came out, in which Michael co-starred alongside Lucinda Dickey and Adolfo Quinones as one of three street dancers who are trying to stop the destruction of a community recreational center.
