What is the Stop and Let Your Homeboy Hit It trend?
The phrase ‘now stop and let your homeboy hit it’ are lyrics from a song by Pateezy called ‘Beat It’.
Once this sound was introduced to TikTok, users soon managed to create a viral trend which includes a hilarious dance.
The popular sound created by @prettyyd0ll.niya has now been featured in 235.8K videos including the uploads of many TikTok stars.
Unlike many popular dances on the app, this one is surprisingly easy – some may even suggest it does not count as a dance!
However, a lot of creators are pleased with the simplicity of the trend.
Content creator, @brycehall, captioned one of his many attempts at the dance by asking:
“can we make an easy dance for TikTok again”
How to do the dance on TikTok
This hilarious dance requires only one simple movement – a slight knee bend!
When the audio sounds the word ‘stop’ – you must do exactly as instructed, halt on the spot and prepare to squat.
Although not compulsory, many creators bend their knees with their feet placed outwards from one another – this positioning is called ‘first-position’ in ballet-terms.
The movement is very similar to the classic ballet-motion which is named a ‘demi-plié’ (French term for half-bend), explaining why many creators are being labelled as a ballerina by their viewers.
@captainkkz took to the comment section of @noahbeck‘s TikTok upload to state:
“Noah’s a freakin ballerina now”
Along with 1519 others, Noah liked this comment – suggesting that he too thinks he has turned into a ballet-dancer.
