When Boni shared a 19-second video on TikTok on April 30, she had no idea what it would do for her life. And now just two weeks later, everything has changed for her.

Captioned, "Can someone make this into an actual song plz just for funzies," her quick video is her singing just a few words, "I'm looking for a man in finance, trust fund, 6'5, blue eyes," over and over. And then she became a viral sensation with her song being remixed over and over and new opportunities flooding her inbox.

"I haven't slept. I feel like I've been blacked out for a week," she told PEOPLE. "I suddenly have an agent. I have calls with major companies. I have all these DJs who want to release the first single with me, so I'm suddenly navigating the music industry."

The song is already being played at concerts and in nightclubs, and even though she may not be getting credit for that being her song, she's enjoying the experience.

"People are asking if I'm annoyed that I'm not getting credit, and I'm like no way, I literally asked for DJs to remix it," she said.

Where Did Megan Boni's Song Idea Come From?

While the one-line song seemed so simple, it came from hearing women complain about being single but having a list of intense expectations for future partners.

"It was just making fun of that, so I started thinking of the most outlandish, hardest things to find in a man and wrote it down, then came up with that rhyme," she said.

What's next for the now viral TikTok star? She's gearing up for the song to be released as a single and hopes to make some appearances at concerts and festivals. And that's not all!

"I'd love to take some stand-up or improv classes, maybe some acting classes," she said. "And I'll probably head to YouTube."
