legs and hips and body TikTok

Okay so what is the ‘legs and hips and body’ song all over TikTok right now?

‘This song got a Donkey Kong type beat’ 💀


A new song is dominating the TikTok For You Page, and the world is obsessed, I’m obsessed and it absolutely will not leave my brain. All I can think about is TikTok viral song “legs and HIPS and body (body)”, and as soon as I think about it you best believe that I start singing it at the top of my lungs as soon as it enters my brain – along with a gentle little shimmy. But where the hell has the “legs and hips and body” TikTok sound come from? Is it a real song? Who is belting it out? Here’s all you need to know.

It’s by Real Housewife of Atlanta star and No Scrubs songwriter Kandi Burruss!

“Legs and hips and body” is an excerpt of the song Legs, Hips, Body by Kandi Burruss. Kandi Burruss is a main cast member of Real Housewives of Atlanta – and also a Grammy Award winning songwriter, known for writing No Scrubs for TLC. This song is actually taken from the soundtrack of a 2014 musical that Kandi made with her husband about a mother and daughter’s relationship.

After Kandi posted a clip of it on TikTok saying she was serving “legs and hips and body”, the video started to go viral. Kandi has acknowledged the song’s growth on her Twitter.

And she’s not the only one!

Why has ‘legs and hips and body’ gone viral on TikTok?

Honestly, and I mean this with all due respect to our queen Kandi Burruss, it’s because the song is so bad. Sorry. It’s just comically bad – with the weird production and the wannabe iconic lyrics that just don’t vibe or bang like they’re supposed to do. Here’s some examples of exactly why legs and hips and body is absolutely dominating your TikTok FYP. I will never be over someone saying it has a “Donkey Kong type beat” tbh.
