    The viral dance challenge uses Cardi B's song 'Up', starting with the hook lyrics:

    "I said my face bomb, a** tight/Racks stack up Shaq height/ Jewelry on me, flashlight/ I been lit since last night/Hit him with that good good/Make a ni**a act right/ Broke boys don't deserve no p**sy, (I know that's right)".

    The dance has moves often physically express the words in the song.
