BLK, the largest dating app created for black singles with over 5 million downloads to date, has teamed up with rap legends Juvenile, Mannie Fresh and Mia X, turning the iconic rap classic “Back That Thang Up “in the new vaccine anthem” Vax That Thang Up “.
The song’s comedic remix is designed to encourage dating and more importantly dating while vaccinated. Cash Money Legends Juvenile and Mannie Fresh return to the song and bring back No Limits star Mia X, bringing a new flavor of feminine energy to release.
The song marks the first time in music history that Cash Money and No Limit have officially collaborated.
“I just wanted to do something positive for my people and be in the forefront to show that I am willing to sacrifice my life not only for myself, but also for my family,” Juvenile said of the new project. “We don’t know what we’re up against right now, but we really all need to get vaccinated so we can keep doing our thing and survive.”
As the US continues to strive for herd immunity against Covid-19, and despite the new threat variant, the demographic that has lagged the longest in vaccinating are young adults. Vaccine coverage between this 18-29 age range has been lower and is increasing more slowly over time compared to other age groups, according to a report published by the US Centers for Disease Control.
“To be young is to feel invincible. BLK is in a unique position to face this historic moment, not through an academic lecture or a sober manifesto, but through pop cultural content that speaks directly to the benefits of dating IRL once you are vaccinated. “
The app now has a new “Vaxified” badge to be on the app, serving as the dating app version of Twitter’s blue check mark. You can watch the video below.
