Buss It, Buss It: These Are The Best Celeb #Bussit Challenges On The Internet

Just when we think it's over, another celeb drops their version, and we're talking about it alllllll over again.

Culture & Entertainment

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:

Samesies.

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

Something that I try to mention, as much as possible, especially when it comes to married and long-term couples is, if you want to go the distance, it's not just the "big things" that you've got to stay up on; it's the little things too. Something as simple as you being a morning person while your partner is a night owl can affect everything from quality of sleep to quality time to your sex life. That's why, when it comes to couples who have different sleep patterns who still want to have a fulfilling sexual dynamic, I'm all about encouraging them to do what is at the foundation for all successful relationships — compromise. Sometimes that means that an alarm clock needs to be set or someone needs to initiate some, umm, stuff (more on that in a bit) in order to get the juices flowing (pun intended and not intended).

Victoria Monét has worked behind the scenes as a songwriter penning hits for Ariana Grande, Chloe x Halle, Brandy, and more, and now it's time for her to stand in the spotlight. The "Coastin'" singer has dropped multiple projects over the last few years to showcase her vocal talent and so far she has been receiving praise for her sultry and jazzy sound. Her most recent project, the 2020 EP Jaguar stayed in the mode of jazz while also infusing sounds that are reminiscent of the '70s.

After previously saying that she was in the process of adopting children, Tiffany Haddish is putting motherhood on "pause." The beloved comedian grew up in the foster care system and originally wanted to be a foster mom, but with advice from her lawyers, she decided that adoption would be best. However, it looks like we won't see her with a child anytime soon.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"
