A rapper’s Madonna-inspired song has people flashing their luxurious and not-so-luxurious lifestyles.
Saucy Santana’s single “Material Girl” seems to have taken over TikTok this fall. Although the track was released back in 2020, its “bass boosted” remix has been featured in 356,000 videos since the end of October. The song is about all things designer and high-end. It’s no wonder TikTokers are using it in their videos about money.

The “Material Girl” challenge
On Nov. 18, Saucy Santana dropped a snippet of “Material Girl” on TikTok.
“Inspired by the Original Material Gworl Madonna,” they wrote in a caption.
The song (and its “bass-boosted” remix) quickly took off on the app. People use the song to soundtrack their ostentatious behavior or to show how they’re hustling to make money.
