First up, props to Blanco Brown for filming his music video in a trailer park, lit entirely by what we assume are car headlights.

“The Git Up” has more than 5 million streams on Spotify, and now everyone is doing their own spin on the dance. #TheGitUpChallenge has more than 100 million views on TikTok. You are guaranteed to encounter it at any weddings in the near future.


Need a tutorial? Blanco Brown is here to help:

Study up now, friends. You will be required to do this dance before the year is out.
