Group of friends film a sandy, sunny version of the Git Up Challenge

May 27th, 2021

You’re probably aware by now of the popular Git Up Challenge inspired by Blanco Brown’s song by the same name.

It’s so catchy it makes you want to dance – and it just to happens that he created a dance to go with it!

Within two months of its release, the song has racked up 42 million streams on Spotify. Then, a dance challenge was created, which already had about 29 million views on TikTok at that time.

The road to the song’s viral success most likely started when Blanco Brown posted a video of him dancing to the song on his Instagram page.

And he referenced this success on his official music video as well.

“Git Up” is one of those songs where you can’t help but shake your shoulders, stomp your feet, and snap your fingers. It’s got easy lyrics, a snappy and catchy tune, and a melody that’ll just put a smile on your face.

“Right now I just need you to git real loose

Get comfortable

Grab your loved ones or grab your love partner

and if you’re by yourself no worries just follow after me.”

And that’s most likely one of the reasons a lot of people loved doing the “Git Up” dance, including this group of friends in the Bahamas.

“To the left to the left now

to the right to the right

now take your left hand and put it on your side

gone roll your shoulders

do the slip and slide

this next parts my favorite part cuz its time to shine”

Maybe their dance moves aren’t perfect, but the background sure is – it makes us want to head to the beach immediately.

It’s a fun song and they want to have fun. So they’re going to dance to it and it doesn’t matter what other people are going to think.
