The ‘Is it bussin Janelle’ trend explained

If your TikTok has been full of videos of people saying ‘Is it bussin Janelle’, then you have Janelle Rohner to thank for that.

Earlier this year, Janelle posted a video to TikTok where she asked her followers what ‘bussin’ means as she had seen the phrase on TikTok a lot and was unfamiliar with the slang term.

“I’ve seen all the comments and duets and I have to be honest. I have no idea what bussin means?? Like I have no idea? Someone please fill me in because I’m so confused,” she wrote.

However, rather than answering her question, people began dueting her video and saying the phrase ‘Is it bussin Janelle’ to confuse her even more.

Then, after finally discovering what the term ‘bussin’ actually means, she took to TikTok yet again to respond.

“To answer your question, yeah it’s bussin,” she said.

But what does ‘bussin’ actually mean?

What does ‘bussin’ mean?

If you’re just as confused as Janelle was, ‘bussin’ is a word that essentially means ‘very good’.
