Juvenile’s ‘Vax That Thang Up’ Is the Summer Anthem We Didn’t Know We Needed

Rapper Juvenile is on a mission to get folks vaccinated and dropped a music video for “Vax That Thang Up” in collaboration with the dating app BLK, to urge folks to vax up so they can make having safe sex, even more safe. TMZ reports.

The song includes a cameo by Mannie Fresh who raps, “Girl you can be the queen / after quarantine / we could meet up at the spot and we can do the thing.” And Lil Wayne who is on the original hit is not in this mash-up but Mia X steps in to hold it down and sings, “If you wanna smash some dude named Scott, go, go, go get the shot.”

The White House is in partnership with  nine dating apps to an effort to get people fully vaccinated. They include Tinder, Hinge, BLK, and others which can offer can filter matches according to a person’s vaccination status.

The hope is that those who are vaccinated will have a little more success finding a suitable match, CBS News reports.

“We have finally found the one thing that makes us all more attractive: a vaccination,” Andy Slavitt, White House senior adviser for the COVID response, said earlier this year when announcing the joint initiative.


According to the outlet, the apps will include the features:

  • badges touting vaccination status
  • free premium content including boosts, super likes and super swipes for those who have received their vaccinations
  • filters that will allow users to search for vaccinated matches

Other apps joining the effort include: Tinder, Hinge, Match, OkCupid, BLK, Chispa, Plenty of Fish, Bumble and Badoo.
