BLK, Match Group’s dating app for Black singles, tapped rappers Juvenile, Mannie Fresh and Mix X to encourage vaccinations in young adults — through the power of nostalgia.
The trio recreated Juvenile’s 1999 hit song “Back That Thang Up” in the parody, “Vax That Thang Up.” In the music video, Juvenile raps: “You finna online date yeah, find a mate yeah, open up BLK yeah, okay yeah.”
But, Juvenile notes the importance of getting vaccinated before hitting the dating scene again. “Girl you looks good won’t you vax that thang up,” he raps. “You’s a handsome young brother, won’t you vax that thang up.”
