Travis Scott Drops A Fire Verse On Erica Banks’ Hit “Buss It”

The ‘Buss it’ challenge is about to get even more lit with a remix of the original Erica Banks song with rapper Travis Scott.

The remix was released on Thursday with a preview that has the chorus sung by Travis Scott. The song opens with Nelly’s ‘Hot in Here,” followed by Travis rapping about stacking money, spending on luxury items, and even sounds like there will be a new buss it challenge to the “pop it,” “lock it,” “drop it” catchy phrase by the Houston rapper.

The viral #BussItChallenge on TikTok, which later took over Twitter and Instagram, has catapulted Banks into official ‘rapdom.’ She was a struggling artist and relatively unknown before the song took over. Celebrities performing the challenge helped the song spread fast on social media and catapult it up the Hot 100 chart.

The original song was released in 2020 but took only got hype in early 2021. The song has also entered the Billboard Hot 100 Chart at No. 62 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The remix is expected to give the songs a boost for Banks.

Meanwhile, Erica Banks explains that the remix is a Texas connection as she teams up with Scott, who remixed her song without her permission and sent her his final track. At this point, she says she is surprised but doesn’t seem angry at all since she thinks the remix does her song justice.

“It’s so crazy. I got a phone call, and the phone call was like, ‘Yo, I’m about to send you this song. I’m about to play this song for you. Tell me what you think.’ I’m not knowing what I’m about to listen to,” she says.

“So I hear ‘Buss It,’ but I hear [Travis Scott] on it. I’m just wowed. I’m like, ‘What the hell is going on? How did he even get this song?’ That’s how I found out, through a phone call of somebody calling me and telling me.”

Cardi B Responds To Accusations She Released New Song For TikTok Challenge

Cardi B is responding to accusations that she released her new song to capitalize on the growing number of TikTok challenges.

Cardi B is not taking disrespect from the internet trolls, and she has come out swinging at critics who say she only makes music just for TikTok challenges. Many artists desperate for attention have created challenges in hopes of going viral, but Cardi says she isn’t one of those persons.

Cardi B clearly enjoys doing the TikTok challenges, as do many other artists. While some have noticed the currency and success the app popular among teenagers is capable of achieving, others have tried to use it to boost or further their career. One prime example of massive success from the app is the debut of break-out artist Erica Banks whose career catapulted to the top because of the “buss it” challenge to her song.

Cardi B, on the other hand, isn’t letting any disrespect slide because she loves TikTok. On Monday, the Grammy award winner shut down claims that she now makes music for TikTok challenges “my videos been A1 from start! They got better the bigger of a artist go soo the budget is going to double up. At first I only had 15 hours to shoot a video now I get two days. Killed it with money & did choreography ever since Please me & press & never stop since.”

Cardi also defended her video choreography “don’t try to play me like I just started this shit cause of tiktok. My last 4 videos I gave choreography & at award shows as well. Please me, press, wap & up was my last videos. EAT IT UP!,” she said in reference to her dancing skills.

Cardi also took offense at the suggestion that she turned her own songs into viral challenges and called out her critics, who said becoming a challenge and forcing challenges on people were vastly different things.

“I never forced a challenge. I never offer MONEY or prices for no challenge. I never even posted hey guys do a challenge for my song. People do it cause they want to sooo miss me wit that shit. I pay ya to show me when I told some1′ hey do a challenge for my song.’”

She also sent support to other female rappers and thanked fans for showing her love always- “Thankful for all my fans, artist, influencer, tiktoker, people that critic music videos and songs, and the GP for showing me love. I’m extremely happy and satisfied. Ladies that’s in my field keep doing what you doing they going to hate always. Give them a reason too.”

Cardi has been the center of controversy with recent claims that she stole the concept of her latest song, “Up,” from a New Jersey man who has a very similar song. The artist denied that she ever heard the song, and fans jumped to her defense, saying the hook of the song is a common Southern saying and has been used in many songs long before Cardi and the New Jersey claimant used it.
