If there’s one thing we can learn from the modern music industry, it’s to never underestimate the power of a sped-up song. It can change lives, boost careers, and bring songs back from the dead. That’s exactly what happened as of late with one of Mariah Carey’s lesser-known songs, It’s A Wrap. The song was included as part of Mimi’s 2009 effort, Memoirs of an imperfect Angel (the same album as Obsessed), and for the most part was contained to the playlists of her fans, the Lambs.
That, however, began to change when a sped-up edit of the dreamy R&B number started to make the rounds on TikTok in late January. The song started to click with more people, and more importantly, spawned an elegant dance challenge fitting for an icon like Mariah. Here are some of the local stars and creators who made it known that it was a wrap for you, baby.
ZEPHANIE AND MICHAEL SAGER
@zephanieofficial It’s meee and the birthday boyyy @Michael Sager ♬ its a wrap sped up – xxtristanxo
The silver and denim terno with the barong? Zephanie and her future leading man Michael Sager get a 10/10 for the ‘fits and an 11/10 for the energy.

Andrea is giving low-key yet cool energy here and still looked stunning. And shoutout to Blythe for using wired headphones, we love a woman who embraces tradition.
KYLINE ALCANTARA AND MAVY LEGASPI

From the matching looks to the synchronized moves, Mavy and Kyline will always coordinate whenever they step out.
EYA BORJA AND LUKE LABAGNOY

So what if Eya and Luke’s moves aren’t in sync? It’s the thought that counts.

We all know these two would body the dance. But can we talk about these looks though? It’s like if a sports star hit the slay button.
