Earlier, the Hulu series “How I Met Your Father” premiered its 2nd season. The spinoff of the popular “How I Met Your Mother” series has featured a few hit song on its soundtrack, but for the season premiere, it featured a global Reggae classic.

On the episode titled “Cool and Chill“, Marcia Griffiths’Electric Slide” was featured. Originally called “Electric Boogie” which was recorded and produced by the late Bunny Wailer in 1976, and released in 1980 and 1989, “Electric Slide” lived a few lives over the years. While it was a minor hit for Wailer in the late 70s and 80s, Marcia Griffiths’ 1983 version of the record was released and became a minor hit as well. It wasn’t until 1989 when a remixed version that was featured on Griffiths’ “Carousel” album quickly made it a dance staple around the world. The new version gave birth to the “Electric Slide” dance, which became the official dance for cookouts, family gatherings, Weddings, and various celebrations and events over the years.

The premiere episode of “How I Met Your Father” featured a Wedding conversation, and was suggested by a cast member to include it in a Playlist, to which it was met with rejection. “Electric Slide” was previously featured in the Marvel series “She-Hulk, and was sampled last year on Cardi B’s “Hot Sh**” featuring Kanye West and Lil Durk. “How I Met Your Father” is a weekly series featured on the Hulu streaming platform.

Western Union featuring Mr. Vegas & DJ Drama

.@WesternUnion Launches New International Campaign Featuring @MrVegasMusic & @DJDrama!


Western Union has launched a first-of-its kind campaign that celebrates Jamaican language and culture in Philadelphia, and it features Philadelphia’s own DJ Drama, a GRAMMY Award winner and newly crowned BET Hip-Hop DJ of the Year; and Jamaican Dancehall singjay Mr. Vegas to capture the essence of both cultures in one seamless activation.

The “Boonununus” campaign which runs up to December 31, 2022 is rooted in the insight that when people send money, they are sending love, possibilities, support, and the opportunity to create more happy moments and memories. Jamaicans use the word “boonununus” to describe something delightful and pleasing. Centering the campaign around the “boonununus” moment of sending money via Western Union free of charge is the perfect opportunity to celebrate Jamaica in a unique way.

The goal of the “Boonununus” campaign is to create an ecosystem of happy moments anchored in giving back to the community and merged with passion points like music and dancing. The result is a unique, ground-breaking musical collaboration between the Philly-native DJ Drama and Mr. Vegas, one of Jamaica’s most recognized voices in Dancehall.

DJ Drama was tapped for the “Boonununus” campaign based on his love for his Philly roots, family, friends, and supporters. Mr. Vegas, one of Jamaican dancehall’s most successful and distinctive artistes, was a seamless match for a collaboration as the idea for the campaign took root. After four days working in studio in separate locations, they landed “Boonununus” with its signature rally cry and just might have a hit single in the making.
