Charva Face / "We Can Go Band for Band" TikTok Trend

In late May 2024, TikTokers popularized the song as a source of dance and lip-dub videos, with some of the most popular lip dubs featuring the TikToker lip dubbing to Central Cee's verse while dressed as posh British people and lip dubbing to Lil Baby's verse in a more gangster, casual style.

On the same day, TikToker[4] @gnb.official posted a lip-dub video in which one person dressed posh lip dubs over Central Cee and one person dressed gangster lip dubs to Lil Baby, garnering over 7 million views in the same span of time (shown below, right). This may be the first video to follow this specific iteration of the trend, although it is unclear.
