What does the latest TikTok craze, the "Pa' Ti" Challenge, involve?

In an iconic scene of the video, the seemingly ageless J.Lo strolls into an ultra-modern office. She takes off her grey suit blazer before performing a slick and sexy routine involving graceful, but simple hand gestures and her trademark hip-shaking.

For the #patichallenge, she partnered up with star-status TikTokers like Indiana Massara, Addison Rae, and Charli D'Amelio. The task at hand? To create a unique take on the iconic routine. 

Some content creators opted for a low-key approach, delivering a more toned-down version of the original dance. Others handled the task at hand with a different mentality, using props, outfits, and bolder dance moves to create even more arresting clips. 

Wearing a bright pink top and high-waist jeans, Charli created a routine that could be easily confused with J.Lo's original. Perfectly imitating the legendary singer's moves, the 16-year-old dancer delivered a breezy but sophisticated take on the challenge. 

The only noticeable difference? J.Lo performs the dance in front of an office desk, seductively stroking the immaculately clean surface, while Charli ditched the table and opted for exaggerated hand gestures instead.

Haley Sharpe opted for broad strokes and unmissable hand gestures, sprightly jumping in her bedroom to create a more lively and energetic version of the original routine.

Montana Tucker dreamed up a whole setup, performing her take on the challenge in a meeting room-like setting complete with a flat-screen TV, black executive chairs, and a round-shaped table with electric sockets in the middle. As a finishing touch, she also arranged a few pieces of paper on the table — much like the ones J.Lo used as a prop in a crucial scene of "Pa' Ti + Lonely."

Miranda and Melanie Wilking were among the select few who attempted the challenge as a duo. Wearing matching outfits — tartan pleated mini skirts, black tops, and leather lace-up heeled sandals — the sisters used an outdoor dining table to perform their take on the electrifying dance.

"Pa' Ti" and "Lonely" will feature on the soundtrack of J.Lo and Maluma's forthcoming movie, 'Marry Me.'

J.Lo and Maluma co-wrote the soundtrack of Marry Me, a musical comedy directed by Kat Coiro. "Pa' Ti" and "Lonely" are only two of the tracks to feature in the movie. 

"I did an album with this movie, so there are all new songs, new music with it, so it's exciting ... I have six to eight songs, and Maluma does two or three," Jennifer explained during a previous appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. 

Marry Me is slated to arrive in movie theaters on Feb. 12, 2021.
