OVERVIEW

“Let’s Talk About Salt” is a boldly creative educational animated music video PSA starring Grammy®-winning Cheryl “Salt” James from the iconic group, Salt-N-Pepa. Hip Hop Public Health was inspired to remix Salt-N-Pepa’s 1991 global hit, “Let’s Talk About Sex” which samples Staple Singers’ 1972 civil rights anthem, “I’ll Take You There” because it opened up conversations, influenced behavioral change, and increased awareness about the AIDS pandemic at the time, saving millions of lives globally. Hip Hop Public Health’s 2020 rendition which was funded in part through the American Heart Association’s New York City Community Impact Grant encourages hypertension prevention by teaching young people about healthy eating and salt consumption with a visually stimulating music video.
