If you’re just now getting turned on to the “Buss It” challenge, congratulations, you’re already late. The first dance challenge of 2021 to swarm TikTok is based on up-and-coming Texas rapper Erica Banks’ single of the same name and it requires dancers to appear torn down in their no make-up/sweats look before dropping it low and twerking in full outfit and makeup.
It has gotten some pretty great takes from the likes of Monica, Rico Nasty and DaniLeigh. But when Chloe X Halle’s Chloe Bailey dropped her take on Thursday (Jan. 21) everyone pretty much called it game over.
Bailey, 22, opens her bid in a colorful shower cap and black robe with gold cuffs, doing the requisite peek back for the Nelly-sampling line “I think my butt gettin’ big.”
But after a little shimmy she claps her hands, spins around and absolutely kills it in a black bra-lette top and long black skirt cut all the way up to her hips, which rock back and forth as she drops it all the way down and mouths the song’s refrain. It drove people nuts. “Better late than never,” Bailey captioned the clip. Yup.
