Welcome to Music Thursdays. Each week, Geek Alabama will feature an artist or band and their latest song and / or music video. People love music, and we love featuring artists and bands!
BLK, the largest dating app made for Black singles, has partnered with rap legends Juvenile, Mannie Fresh, and “the mother of southern gangster rap” Mia X, turning the iconic rap classic “Back That Thang Up” into the new vaccine anthem, “Vax That Thang Up.”
The message is clear: dating is better in all the ways once you’re vaccinated.
Black adults under the age of 40 are the most likely group to avoid the Covid-19 vaccination, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Distrust of doctors and government, less access to vaccination centers, and online misinformation each play a role. We hope this video is both entertaining and actionable.
This track marks the first time in music history that artists from Cash Money Records and No Limit Records have collaborated in any official capacity. At BLK we are all about making connections, even beyond dating.
