Young Thug on April 16, served the highly anticipated sequel to his ‘Slime Language’ album ‘Slime Language 2.’ A notable track from the album is ‘Ski’ on which he features Gunna. Take a look at the official music video to the track below.
Slime Language 2 arrived with 23 tracks in a star-studded affair, with notable contributions from the likes of Drake, Travis Scott, Big Sean, Meek Mill, Rowdy Rebel, Coi Leray, Lil Baby, Lil Uzi Vert, Future, and more. The compilation album also arrived on the six-year anniversary of Thug’s Barter 6 mixtape, which helped push the Atlanta rapper into the spotlight.
A few days after Slime Language 2 arrival, the YSL representative shared a video of himself via TikTok in what appears to be a studio doing ski-like movements to his own track. Thug later uploaded the video to Instagram, asking fans to help with a name for the challenge which led to him naming the dance #SkiChallenge.
In the challenge, the users then begin pretending they’re skiing, throwing their arms on each side of their body to give the illusion that they’re doing the sport, in time to the beat. This happens when Thug says “Yeah,yeah (Woo),Yeah (Woo), yeah (Yeah) Yeah (Yeah), yeah
Yeah (Yeah), yeah (Yeah)” on the track.
For the next couple seconds, users put their own swag and dance on the video, freestyling moves, until Thug raps “I got these bad ass bi**hes riding ’round this bitch and they all the coldest (Yeah)”.
When Thug says “Three”, TikTok users hold up the number three with their hands, mimicking a “perfect” emoji sign.
Throughout the rest of the dance, users just add their own swag to the dance.
The likes of Drake, Swae Lee, Kelvin Hart, Diddy, Quavo, Memphis Depay, Meek Mill, Rowdy Rebel, Coi Leray and many others have so far taken on the #SkiChallenge.
