The Brief: TikTokers are dancing with their friends in a circle to "SexyBack" by Justin Timberlake.
TikToker @jenniferjeppssson choreographed a TikTok dance to the song “SexyBack” by Justin Timberlake, featuring Timbaland. In the dance, she and her friends, @themainsofficial, go around in a circle, performing a set of moves to the music. They first posted a video of the dance in July 2020 before adding an updated version in January 2021.
The lyrics included in the sound clip go:
Take it to the chorus
Come here, girl (Go ‘head, be gone with it)
Come to the back (Go ‘head, be gone with it)
VIP (Go ‘head, be gone with it)
Drinks on me (Go ‘head, be gone with it)
Let me see what you’re twerking with (Go ‘head, be gone with it)
Look at those hips (Go ‘head, be gone with it)
You make me smile
At the time of writing, there are over 926,000 videos associated with the sound clip, but some are from other trends like the “come here girl” meme of April 2020.
Other TikTokers soon hopped on the “SexyBack” TikTok trend, trying the dance with their friends and collectives.

Some versions of the “SexyBack” TikTok dance feature only two people who do somersault-like tricks so that they revolve in a circle together.
