Man Drops Bars to Monica's #SoGoneChallenge to Propose to His Girlfriend

After 10 years together, one man bravely got down on one knee to ask his high school sweetheart to be his forever, and of course, it went viral.

Monica and Missy Elliott’s 2003 smash hit single “So Gone” has reemerged as a dope social media freestyle challenge,. Now that fans and celebrities alike are all over social media joining in the #SoGoneChallenge fun and adding their own remixes to the certified banger, it has been tough to pick a favorite, until now. One man’s #SoGoneChallenge wedding proposal takes the cake and warms our hearts. 

#PressPlay : Aww!! This man got creative with the #SoGoneChallenge 😩😩 If you're wondering, she said yes!! ❤️

Using the “So Gone” instrumental as his guide, this lovestruck fella used the challenge to take the ultimate step and ask his girlfriend of 10 years to be his bride.

During his rap, he mentions that the two met in high school, and even when she’s mad at him, in his eyes she’s still the “most beautiful girl in the room.” (Aww!) He thanked her family for trusting in him as a man to love her unconditionally before getting down on one knee and asking for her hand in marriage.
