In partnership with BLK, the dating app for Black singles, Juvenile and Mannie Fresh remixed their 1999 twerk anthem, “Back That Thang Up.

The former Cash Money artists called on No Limit rapper Mia X to turn the classic record into the new vaccine anthem, “Vax That Thang Up.” The song encourages listeners to get the COVID-19 vaccine before meeting up with a potential date they matched with on BLK.

“You finna online date yeah /find a mate yeah / Open up BLK yea it’s okay yeah / Profile pic lookin’ tight yea, nice yea/ Gotcha bio readin’ right yeah, precise yeah / But before you find a date yeah /you gotta wait yeah / Gotta go vaccinate yeah, get it straight yeah,” Juvenile raps in the chorus. 

Mannie shared the same sentiment on his verse, while Mia comes on the end telling people to, “Go, get the shot, go, go get the shot.”

“Vax That Thang Up” marks the first collaboration between Cash Money and No Limit Records.
