Rapper Juvenile teamed up with a brand new relationship app for Black Singles to drop a vaccine rap anthem
Get able to occasion prefer it’s 1999 another time. The late 90s rap smash “Back That Thang Up” by Juvenile has gotten a pandemic period remix that’s going to make you wish to twerk on right down to your native vaccination website.
Juvenile and fellow rappers Mannie Fresh (whose voice you’ll acknowledge from the unique monitor) and Mia X dropped “Vax That Thang Up,” with the assistance of BLK, a brand new relationship app for Black singles. The partnership makes full sense once you hear the brand new (and dare I say improved) lyrics — it’s all about getting vaxed simply in time for a steamy summer season hook up:
“Before you get a date, you gotta wait, yeah
Gotta go vaccinate yeah, get it straight yeah
Girl you look good received’t you vax that thang up
You a good-looking younger brother received’t you vax that thang up
Dating in actual life, you could vax that thang up
Feeling freaky all night time, you could vax that thang up”
Each verse is principally funnier than the final, like this gem from Mannie Fresh: “I know you can’t stand it, no holding hands chick, but when we get the shot we gon’ be romancing. Girl you could be the queen, after quarantine.”
Not to be outdone, Mia X presents up the wonderful line, “If you wanna smash some dude named Scott, then go, go, go, go get the shot.”
The lyrics are *chef’s kiss* good, and someway handle to take care of all of the enjoyable of the unique bop. Naturally, Twitter went wild for it.

Besides providing up an incredible summer season jam, the humorous tune additionally serves as an vital PSA. Figures launched by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in late June present that vaccination charges amongst younger adults have lagged behind different age teams. Only a few third of Americans between the ages of 18 and 39 have gotten vaccinated, and the speed drops a number of factors decrease once you break it down into simply these beneath 24. The CDC report discovered that younger adults who’re Black had the bottom vaccination charges, at about 25%.
About 40% of Black younger adults who have been surveyed did say they supposed to get vaccinated, nevertheless, so each little little bit of incentive may assist with that — together with an unbelievable rap parody. Juvenile instructed Yahoo! that that was his foremost motivation in placing out the tune: “I just wanted to do something positive for my people and to stand in the front to show that I’m willing to sacrifice my life not just for me but also for my family, We don’t know what we’re facing right now but we really do all need to be vaccinated so we can continue to do our thing and survive.”
