If you’ve been on social media in the last few days, you’ll have come across the Buss It Challenge. Read on to find out more and see the best ones.
The trend originated on TikTok but has soon spread to Twitter and Instagram, where users have been sharing their favourite versions.
The Buss It Challenge sees an individual begin the video in casual clothing, messy hair and no makeup, dancing while facing the camera. When the beat drops, you drop to the floor into the Buss It pose, transitioning into a glamorous outfit with hair and makeup to the nines.

To create the video, it’s essential you film two videos and add them together. The first being the casual look which finishes when you ‘drop it’ to the floor, and the next begins in the floor pose in the glamorous look.
What song is in the challenge?
The Buss It challenge features the song Buss It by Erica Banks, an American Hip Hop artist. She released the track on June 8th 2020, but it has recently gained popularity because of TikTok. The audio can be found on TikTok under ‘Buss It – Erica Banks’.
But which part features in the TikToks? At the very beginning of the song, Nelly’s Hot in Herre is sampled, featuring the lyrics:
“Checkin’ your reflection and tellin’ your best friend
Like, ‘Girl, I think my butt getting’ big’”
It then proceeds into Erica Banks own part from the song. Buss It is currently climbing the streaming charts, and Erica recently shared on Instagram that it was No. 8 on the Apple iTunes charts.
Erica has been sharing her favourite versions of the Buss It challenge on her Instagram stories, so if you’re lucky you may even get featured on it.
