Major artists aren’t the only ones winning during the global pandemic lockdown. Tangina Stone, a New York City-based artist, landed a deal with a Canadian lager company called Collective Arts Lager. Tangina Stone’s image features on cans sold all over the continent. What makes it outstanding for me, is that when you scan the QR code, it takes you to her music. Tangina Stone was the first artist in NYC Pride’s 50-year existence to open its broadcast on ABC with the Black National Anthem, which is no small feat.

Just gonna sit this right here. My beer collaboration with @collectivebrew is dropping in the next couple of weeks in the US. I am beside myself with joy and excitement. It is called an "Audio Lager". It is made to to sip while you support good music 🙂 There will be a code on the can that will take you directly to a new song that I am dropping !I have always had a strong desire to see more black women at the forefront of beer and liquor culture. I never imagined that I would be one of these women. Cheers to never shortchanging myself again. Cheers to never shortchanging YOURSELF either. We've got this. Keep applying pressure.This is a win for all of US. Thank you @collectivebrew , @goldieharris and @eqdistro ! Happy Pride. Happy Black Music Month. #blacklivesmatter #blackartmatters #gratitude #blackgirlmagic #trustblackwomxn🌈✊🏾🌹🍺 Can design by @wesartstudio inspired by photography from @topherblev 💙
