Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande‘s new hit “Rain On Me” is getting the TikTok treatment. The electro-pop song is featured in the trending #RainOnMe dance challenge on TikTok. The new dance challenge consists of dancers using TikTok’s “Rain Control” effect while crossing their arms back and forth across their chest while rocking their hips from side to side. This causes the rain droplets to move around the screen, creating a dazzling display.

“Rain On Me” lyrics featured in #RainOnMe TikTok videos:

I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive
Rain on me, rain, rain
Rain on me, rain, rain
I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive
Rain on me, rain, rain
Rain on me
