There's no shortage of influencers who have tried out the freshest trend heating up TikTok this winter. Erica Banks' trap anthem "Buss It" has truly taken over the internet, and now several A-listers are dancing along to the bop, too. These celebrity "Buss It" challenge videos are so fierce, they'll make you want to try out the audio for yourself.
Although "Buss It" came out in 2020, the song only caught on among TikTok's top influencers during the first week of January 2021. The challenge associated with the song likely went viral because of how popular transformation videos are on the app. Gurus, models, and everyday users were quick to transform themselves specially for the song's beat drop, revealing their fiercest looks while bobbing back and forth in a low squat. It's an easy trend, but the satisfying payoff of seeing any one user's final form is what helped skyrocket the videos' view counts beyond the tens of millions range.
The "Buss It" trend shows no signs of slowing down, and the song's creator is only building the hype at this point. Banks, a Texas rapper signed to former MLB player Carl Crawford's label, excited her fans when she announced she wanted Nicki Minaj to hop on the song's remix. If the Queen of Rap jumps on the track, "Buss It" is guaranteed to dominate TikTok and the charts.
While fans of Banks continue to try out their own renditions of the "Buss It" challenge, scroll down and check out several celebrities' fine-tuned takes on the trend. From rappers to YouTubers, everyone in Hollywood is dropping it low for the viral hit.
