Over the past two weeks or so, our timelines have been blessed, and filled to the brim, with a plethora of the 'Buss It' challenges. If you're unfamiliar, the latest trend is a nod to how magical black women are (in case there was ever a moment that you second-guessed it). The premise of the challenge is simple: set to the tune of Erica Banks' "Buss It", you open the video by showing off what you look like when not dolled up, and when the beat drops or changes, then so do you--all transitioned to a new fly AF queen, showing off your best Megan Thee Stallion knee game.
I mean, no lie, this one is everything, like I absolutely cannot get tired of seeing the creativity, the beauty, and so much more. And the best part is just when we think it's over, another celeb drops (pun intended) their version, and before long, we're talking about it alllllll over again.
Like when Chloe Bailey broke the World Wide Web:
Chloe Bailey stepped on the scene with her version to retire them all.
Bailey, is one half of the singing duo, Chloe x Halle, has had a very successful career over the last couple of years. They started by taking minor roles in films and now they are Grammy-nominated singers, songwriters, and actresses. The two entered the industry as kids and since, have worked to shed their child-like image, emerging as flourishing women. The two have been attached to the hip their entire careers, even having joint social media accounts the entire time. That was until Chloe Bailey got her own account and shut shit down.
And Miss Jackson represented for her man:
She loved it so much that she created two versions, each equally making bae--who had to clear the sample for the song to even exist--proud.
Jackie Aina came through with her Beyonce Fan and all:
Can I just say, black women in yellow is supreme?
And Jordyn Woods had us question why we would even try:
To which her boo replied, "God is good."
Traci Steele's looked a lot like my attempt:
And Tracee Ellis Ross too:
We loved seeing Gabrielle Union show off the natural her:
And Reginae with the body suit:
*dusts off knees*
In the end, no matter how long this challenge sticks around, knowing that we drive pop culture in this way, is something I will never get over. #bussit
