Mariah Carey lip-synchs to her hit song “Fantasy” as part of the latest viral challenge on TikTok

Over the last year, TikTok has become a social phenomenon ⁠— as well as a whole new bone of contention for parents. From launching the career of Lil Nas X to creating and promoting the success of everyone from Travis Scott to Billie Eilish, the Chinese-owned social media site has infiltrated pop culture in the most infectious way. In addition to promoting new music, users often create challenges, resurrecting some of our favorite hits and encouraging other users to share their lip-synching slash dancing routines. (Even Reese Witherspoon is in on it after learning about it from her teenage son.) It is all sorts of entertaining, considering you can find babies dancing to “Old Town Road” and senior citizens rapping to Drake. Well, this week, a viral challenge called the #FantasyChallenge has been sweeping the site, devoted to the unofficial Queen of Christmas, Mariah Carey. And apparently Carey, herself, is up for any challenge because she decided to join in on the fun and share her own take on the classic tune.

Clad in all black and looking fierce in a motorcycle jacket and sky-high stiletto boots, Carey showed off her moves ⁠— which seriously haven’t slowed down over the last couple decades ⁠— in front of a black velvet curtain, her lips singing along to the words of her 1995 hit, “Fantasy.” She seriously got into it, judging from her amazing facial expressions.

“Just for laughs,” she captioned the TikTok video, sharing it to her Instagram and Twitter accounts as well.

According to one fan, the challenge was first offered up in December 2018, but recently started trending.
