Prepare to fork out some cash for the Me & You emote in Fortnite. Fortunately, this only sets you back 500 V-bucks in the Fortnite Item Shop.

To find it, head to the Signature Style section in your Fortnite Item Store. Once you get your hands on the Me & You emote, you’ll whip out a guitar and bash out a snippet of the full song.

However, there is an issue impacting the Fortnite Item Store. These undisclosed issues forced Epic to remove things from the Shop. If your Me & You emote is missing, that’s likely why.
