The Challenge Sing a Song on Instagram is the new fashion among users in Brazil. Created by developer @biaisi, the effect gained notoriety when the famous Caio Castro and Lucas Lucco unsuccessfully tried to participate in the game in their respective Stories: both did not understand how the virtual roulette that artists choose should stop. The success of the effect was even identified by Google Trends, a Google tool that monitors relevant subjects on the web. The platform registered a significant increase in searches for the filter on Friday (20).

However, it is up to the person to touch the screen so that the choice is made and record a video singing a song by that artist.
