In the mood to learn a new dance? Thanks to Jennifer Lopez, we now have an excuse to practice doing body rolls at home. Timed to the release of her two-part music collaboration with Maluma, the 51-year-old singer launched the "Pa Ti" challenge featuring choreography from her music video.

In the video that launched the viral challenge, Lopez dances in a large corporate Wall Street office with backup dancers dressed as businessmen in the background. But don't worry, you don't need Jenny from the Block's epic skills or a cubicle to get in on the fun. The 14-second video trend involves relatively easy-to-learn moves that you can practice at home. When you're ready, record your own take, and upload the video using the hashtag #PaTiChallenge.

Lopez, who has amassed over 11 million followers on TikTok, used one of the app's biggest stars, 16-year-old Charli D'Amelio, to kick off the challenge. D'Amelio who has almost 90 million followers on TikTok, posted her version of the dance on September 25. Since then, the teen's video has garnered over 26 million views and almost 5 million likes. Lopez's own TikTok video—an excerpt of her "Pa Ti" music video—has over 8 million views.

Other big TikTok users, like Addison Rae, Montana Tucker, Rodney Lee, Howard Johnson, and Indiana Massara, also joined in on the fun, each adding their own unique spin on J.Lo's original "Pa Ti" dance.

With the help of big creators posting their own versions of the dance challenge, the #PaTiChallenge has gotten over 1.3 billion views on TikTok in five days. In celebration of the big milestone, Lopez posted her own compilation video.

If you're loving the "Pa Ti" dance and song, you're in luck. In addition to the TikTok challenge, the song will be included in the soundtrack for Lopez's upcoming movie Marry Me.
