What Is the “What a Time to Be Alive” Trend on TikTok?

If you’ve been living under a rock, there’s a new trend on TikTok. Users are shooting videos showing what they’re grateful for in their lives.

In the background, you can hear the “Cyber Sex” song by Doja Cat. The “What a Time to Be Alive” verse is used in all the TikTok videos.

It signifies a moment of gratefulness and self-realization, just as the song tries to portray. Even though the song is heavily sexualized, most of the TikTok videos aren’t about that.

Someone could say something like “On my way to a 3-week vacation with my hubby” and play this song in the background (the “What a Time to Be Alive“) sequence.

Happiness, immediate satisfaction, mindless fun, and somewhat of an emphasis on irresponsible distractions – that’s what the song is about.

Is the “Cyber Sex” Song Getting Attention?

Of course, it does. The song was officially released in 2019, and, at the moment, it has almost 38 million views and 800k likes. The younger generation is all over it.

If you want to listen to it, here’s the link to the official music video on YouTube.

As for the lyrics, here they are:

“I wanna touch on you
You see me in my room
Wish you were here right now
All of the things I’d do
I wanna get freaky on camera
I love when we get freaky on camera
We freak on the cam
Love at first sight, just a link to the ‘Gram
Pussy all pink with a tan
And I play with it ’til my middle fingers are cramped up
Swipe right ’cause he thick and he handsome
Love a sneak peek when you freak, can we cam up?
No shot to the screen, put your hands up
Make it pop in your face like a Samsung
And that’s my nigga, better yet, that’s my hitta
He don’t lick goons and if you do you could go missin’
Met him on Tinder, he just swiped left on bitches
And he don’t even scroll through Insta
‘Less he going through my pictures
I wanna touch on you
You see me in my room
Wish you were here right now
All of the things I’d do
I wanna get freaky on camera
I love when we get freaky on camera
Is you into that? (Into that, is you into that? Uh-huh)
Let’s break the internet (internet, on the internet, oh ohh)
We do it the best (it the best, doin’ it the best, uh-uhh)
When we have cybersex (cybersex, havin’ cybersex)
(Oh-ooh)
When he off work, he calling me on Skype (yeah!)
Trust me when I meet him, I’m fucking him on sight (yeah)
Lemme see you can beat it, I’m feelin’ just like Mike (okay, okay)
Huh-oh, stuff that ’til I drown in all of your pics
Can’t scroll down ’cause some of them dicks
Nigga, my parents going through my shit (my shit, my shit)
Huh-oh, can’t give head, you give me the Facetime
Nigga, you a creep, I saw you on Dateline
You ain’t gettin pussy, you fucking a A.I
Huh-oh, what a time to be alive
Living in the future, blinging on my hotline
I wanna touch on you
You see me in my room
Wish you were here right now
All of the things I’d do
I wanna get freaky on camera
I love when we get freaky on camera
I wanna touch on you
You see me in my room
Wish you were here right now
All of the things I’d do
I wanna get freaky on camera
I love when we get freaky on camera
Is you into that? (Into that, is you into that? Uh-huh)
Let’s break the internet (internet, on the internet, oh oh)
We do it the best (it the best, doin’ it the best, uh-uh)
When we have cybersex (cybersex, havin’ cybersex) (Oh-ooh)”

Quite meaningful lyrics, right? Well, many TikTokers have adopted some of the lyrics in this song to create short videos on TikTok.
