A new competitor has entered the ring in the #WildSideChallenge: the girl from Rio herself.
The #WildSideChallenge started trending on social media after the song’s release July 16, raking up 15.6 million views for the hashtag on TikTok so far. Those who wish to participate can perform a chunk of Normani’s energetic choreography from the “Wild Side” music video over a snippet of the song.
The “WAP” rapper took to Twitter to praise Anitta’s moves, retweeting her video and exclaiming “OMMMMGGG SHE SO GOOD.”
Anitta crossed paths with Cardi B back in 2020 when they collaborated on “Me Gusta,” which peaked at No. 91 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Brazilian actress and singer is fresh off her latest single “Girl From Rio” and has an album — her first fully English project — due out sometime this year. Meanwhile, Cardi B was just tapped by Lizzo for a collaboration on the “Truth Hurts” artist’s first release since 2019’s Cuz I Love You, a single called “Rumors” out Friday.
