Brazilian singer-songwriter Anitta has completely taken over TikTok with her ‘Anitta Envolver’ challenge in 2022 and here are some of the best viral videos.

Anitta started the hot dancing trend on TikTok back in March, prompting users around the world to get on all fours to replicate her move.

After posting a video of herself dancing to her new single Envolver during a live performance, plenty of people on TikTok and Instagram started posting their own take using #Envolver or #AnitaChallenge – with the latter racking up over one billion views since it started.

The viral Anitta challenge, also known as the Envolver Challenge, recently won Anitta an MTV Miaw award, making it her 14th award in 2022. Here, we’re going to explain what the challenge is and show you some of the best entires!

What is the Anitta Challenge? 

The Anitta challenge involves bending over, almost planking, and doing a push-up in slow motion while gyrating your hips. It’s almost like twerking, but more complex.  

It can be seen in her official music video for ‘Envolver,’ which has over 290 million views.

While many have made their attempts, it is harder than it looks. The move requires a lot of upper body and core strength. So, let’s take a look at five users who have mastered it…
