Can “XO Tour Llif3” Become the Next “Black Beatles”?

Today Fetty Wap jumped on the TM88-produced “XO Tour Llif3” beat for a short verse about his ex. “Shorty said she missed me but she lied, but she lied/ Something ’bout me even made her cry, made her cry,” he raps. Fetty also flipped a freestyle over “Pull Up Wit A Stick” to stunt on the haters, but his work over “XO” is part of a growing wave of people who are repurposing the Lil Uzi Vert track, which is still sitting on top of SoundCloud’s most played list. The song’s popularity has spread beyond its streaming numbers and become the inspiration for a number of new formats.

It’s got a viral dance, with kids uploading videos that mimic Vert’s loose shimmy. Called the #LilUziVertChallenge, the videos feature dancers recreating his shoulder shake, effeminate head swivel, and heavy-lidded glance in different settings, over and over (and over) again.

More elaborate dance videos for the tune are being uploaded to YouTube as well, with full sessions of kids rocking hit them folks and running man moves. The biggest video, of course, is by Atlanta’s SheLovesMeechie, Toosie, Ayo, and Teo. But there are a couple similar ones that have around 100,000 views each, too.

Then there are the “XO Tour Llif3” remixes, which are actually slower to drop than expected. Maybe that’s because SoundCloud has been so vicious with their takedowns lately. But there are still a few remixes floating out there, including the expected fast and screwed versions and a Philly club remix. But one that stands out the most so far is this bootleg by Vancouver’s Dyzphoria. He stretches out the bleakness of the original by slowing up the vocals a bit and adding some horror movie synths that glitter and growl.

Considering that “XO Tour Llif3” hasn’t been out for a full month yet, this is probably just the beginning. Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” was taken over the top by way of the #manniquenchallenge, and from the way people are interacting with “XO,” it may follow a similar path.
