The CDC says to wash your hands for 20 seconds, here are 7 New Orleans songs to pass the time

Let me find out you didn't wash your hands.

NEW ORLEANS — There are no diagnosed cases of COVID-19 coronavirus in Louisiana, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be safe and take the time to REALLY wash your hands.

The CDC recommends washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, or about the time it takes to sing "Happy Birthday" twice. But nobody actually likes singing "Happy Birthday."

Luckily, New Orleans rappers put out plenty of songs with 20 second hooks to help you keep time.

DJ Jubilee -- Get it Ready Ready

Each part is about 10 seconds long, get through two and you're good to go! It's like partying on the parade route, but in your BATHROOM.

Talk that stuff, now roll with it
Talk that stuff, now roll with it
Talk that stuff, now roll with it
Talk that stuff now
Walk it like a dog

Walk it like a dog
Walk it like a dog
Walk it like a dog
Ah, woof dog, woof dog
Walk it like a dog
Walk it like a dog
Walk it like a dog
Now take your dog for a walk 

Master P -- Make 'Em Say Ugh!

I'm washing my hands with the same energy as Master P riding in a gold tank.

Juvenile -- Back That Thang Up

Because we're bringing back washing our hands for the '99 and the 2000's

Girl, you looks good, won't you back that thang up
You'se a fine lookin' woman, won't you back that thang up
Call me Big Daddy when you back that thang up
Girl, who is you playin wit? Back that thang up

Girl, you looks good, won't you back that thang up

Juvenile -- Slow Motion

A hand washing ANTHEM. Slow it down, take that full 20 seconds.

Ugh I like it like that she working that back I don't know how to act
