The Dallas rapper’s track has been circulating on TikTok since last summer, but the new challenge raised her profile: She just signed with Warner Records.
The ‘Buss It’ challenge
So what is the “Buss It” challenge? It’s similar to transition-specific trends like the Wipe It Down challenge, where participants start in one scenario and end up in another. The “Buss It” challenge typically requires a transition from one outfit to another, with an emphasis on the drop.
BuzzFeed points to a Jan. 2 TikTok from Erika Davila as the inspiration. She does the drop in sweats, but suggests, “Someone plz do this transition but all prettied up omg plzzzz.”
Some people got creative: This TikTok incorporates last week’s pro-Trump siege on the Capitol into the challenge.
But the real heroes of the “Buss It” challenge are the knees that likely weathered multiple attempts at a seamless transition.
Be careful out there.
