Can somebody please invent a time machine to take us back to the early 2000s? I guess until then we’ll have to rely on the mobile time machine that is TikTok. One of the latest dance trends taking over the app recently has been Sean Paul’s 2003 smash “Get Busy.” The early to mid-2000s were an interesting time in the music industry as it marked a period of many reggae and dancehall songs crossing over onto the U.S. charts and becoming popular. While there have been some reggae/dancehall tracks to experience decent success in the years since, we haven’t quite seen it rise to the level of that 2000s period again making this a memorable time in music history.
Fittingly, “Get Busy” also recently celebrated its 20th anniversary in January making this trend a timely one. As usual, we’re going to break down the history of the song, give you a couple of rare videos, and show you how you can get in on the challenge.
