Normani's 'Motivation' Inspires Viral Challenge

Over the weekend, Normani's video for "Motivation" sent shockwaves through the blogosphere. Now, her next-level dance moves have also inspired a viral challenge, and we can't get enough.

While there's no shortage of GIF-able moments and early-aughts pop references in the video, one particular moment on the court has everyone shook.

In one dance sequence, Normani nails a dance move in which she booty bumps a basketball in what many are dubbing "the dance move of the century." (Fun fact: On the very same basketball court that Jennifer Lopez filmed "I'm Real (Remix)," no less.)

Needless to say, the ballsy (sorry) move has inspired a slew of fans to try and recreate the move on every social media platform imaginable — though it's proven much harder than it looks.

Check out a few of the videos, below.
