The 'Mask Off' challenge has changed Future's song forever

"Mask Off" by Future has quickly become the inspiration for many viral social media clips.

It's safe to say that the Mannequin Challenge has officially been replaced. If you've been living under a rock, the "Mask Off" Challenge and song by Future has been the current theme to several viral videos.

The ultra catchy flute riff and hook in "Mask Off" from Future's self-titled album inspired this new social media wave. The trend has quickly become a way for young musicians to showcase their talent.

We've rounded up some of the most dynamic takes on the challenge below. Many of the "Mask Off" videos involve a flute like this one.

On the other hand, several challenge participants have opted for a jazzier route.

String instruments are also played in several videos, similar to this rendition by classically trained violinist Ezinma Ramsay.

This steelpan interpretation is equally unique and impressive.

And this last one needs no introduction.
