The Best Of The So Gone Challenge


Throughout the years, we’ve participated in the ice bucket challenge, the cinnamon challenge, the Kylie Jenner lip challenge… the list goes on and on. This month, it seems as though social media’s latest viral trend is the So Gone challenge, popularized by hip hop artist Chance The Rapper.

The rules to the So Gone challenge are simple: freestyle about whatever you’re passionate about over Monica’s “So Gone” instrumental, post it to social media, and use the hashtag #sogonechallenge.

The single was Monica’s 2003 version of Beyoncé’s “Don’t Hurt Yourself” (or, just Lemonade in general). In the song, Monica interchangeably sings and raps about her fictional good for nothing, cheating boyfriend. Fast forward to 13 years after the song’s release and everyone from Dwyane Wade to Kevin Hart is putting their own signature spin on it. Keep scrolling to listen to our top So Gone challenge curation.
