The viral song officially made its debut at No. 84 on the Billboard Hot 100 on the chart dated Monday (January 25), thanks to its accompanying #JunebugChallenge. Created by a TikToker named Junebug, the dance is pretty much a spastic movement of your entire body in every and any random location you can find. Saweetie, for example, chose to do hers on the top of her car in the middle of the very-busy Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles, among other hilarious locations.

Other huge names have gotten in on the challenge as well, including the Cleveland Browns, the Carolina Panthers and even LeBron James.

SpotEmGottEm released the visual to the song in April, and it’s amassed nearly 14 million views on YouTube in the 10 months since. The challenge isn’t featured in the video as it blew up on TikTok months later in December, but the 18-year-old rhymer has since fully embraced it and was even spotted with Junebug himself on Monday (January 25).
