Aside from hosting live-stream concerts and releasing new music, artists are making the most of their self-quarantines by creating or hopping on viral social media challenges.
Megan Thee Stallion transformed her “Savage” track from her recent EP Suga to the soundtrack of one of the Internet’s hottest dance routines. TikTok-savvy couple Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey jumped on the trend, along with Meg’s “Diamonds” collaborator Normani and Ryan Destiny, and even Janet Jackson, whose “Nasty” lyrics came in handy when the 25-year-old artist raps, “Sassy, moody, nasty.”
Tim McGraw also drew superstars to his #DeepCutsChallenge, which he launched by performing John Schneider’s “Take the Long Way Home” and nominating Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney to jam out to one of their favorite underrated songs. Paisley took the baton and ran with it, passing it on to Darius Rucker and creating a chain of country power players performing all over Instagram.
Gillie Da Kid passed along his “Kush Up Challenge,” one step higher than the “Push-Up Challenge,” to Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa and G-Herbo, as each rapper took 10 breathless puffs from their blunts without letting any smoke out.
