#AllofMyPretty is for everybody

Inspired by Ariana Grande’s song “Pov,” the #AllofMyPretty challenge is a celebration of all sides of people as well as the hidden or private moments that don’t always make it out to the open.

It’s cool and inspirational allowing users to follow the lyrics in the song and use the green screen effect to show those intimate moments as much as they can.

This challenge got over 3,000 creations on its first day and over 1.3M views in a week. It has since crossed 82.5M views. Check here.


Had to hop on this trend😂
