Blanco Brown’s ‘The Git Up’ Video Brings the Kind of Good Vibes We Need Right Now
Blanco Brown's "The Git Up" video is all about bringing people together in the name of music — and dancing! And it just feels good.
The video opens with Brown waking up with a smile on his face and a text that reads "Git up and be great son!"
Immediately, the viral star draws a crowd with his positive energy, and together they hit the streets to dance around quaint town of Watertown, Tenn. Of course they're doing as "The Git Up" instructs, stepping: "To the left, to the left now (to the left, to the left) / To the right to the right (to the right) / Now take your left hand and put it on your side (put it on your side) / Go on, roll your shoulders (roll your shoulders) / Do the slip and slide (do the slip and slide) / This next part's my favorite part / 'Cause it's time to shine."
Brown then ventures into firehouse, where he teaches a team of firemen and women how to do "The Git Up" while a group of senior citizens he meets in a diner are all smiles as they learn the new steps. But it becomes a full-blown party as Brown and his new friends take to a wide open field, the song playing overhead as a now-diverse group happily obliges to the song's commands.
"The Git Up" was released as Brown's debut country single in May 2019. It's since spent nine weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, in addition to sitting in the top spot on the Billboard Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales charts for 11 weeks.
