Mariah Carey is using her classic hits to teach us all about coronavirus prevention.

On Friday (March 13), the 49-year-old music legend and her 8-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, shared a now-viral TikTok video to show how to properly wash one's hands with the help of her ’90s hit "Fantasy (Bad Boy Remix)," featuring late rapper O.D.B.

“Are you ready? We got 20 seconds. How’s it go, you know it?” Mariah told her kids of the song before they adorably started rapping along to O.D.B.’s verse while soaping up their hands.

“Me and Mariah, go back like babies [with] pacifiers!” the trio rapped before Mariah took the lead. "‘Old Dirt Dog’s no liar’ — how’s it go?! ‘Hot like fire.'"

“Whose hands are clean?” the proud mom asked the twins before their 20-second timer went off and they rinsed their hand off together in the sink.

Mariah later shared the video to Twitter, writing, “Exercising this to 20 seconds of Ol’ Dirty Bastard! Wash your hands! Stay safe!!! ❤️”

As of Saturday morning (March 14), there were more than 142,000 coronavirus cases globally and more than 5,300 related deaths, according to the latest figures from the World Health Organization, per CNN.
