"Black Beatles" scores Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane their first Hot 100 No. 1
It’s a real crowd pleaser.
Between the #MannequinChallenge and just how much we raved about it over the summer, Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” has proven to be an undeniable, real crowd pleaser. Now, the hit earworm is the No. 1 song in the country.
The SremmLife 2 smash, featuring Gucci Mane, has blasted from No. 9 to the top spot this week, giving Swae Lee, Slxm Jimmy and Guwop their first-ever Hot 100 chart-topper. Speaking on the big feat, the hitmaker behind the single Mike WiLL Made It told Billboard, “To be able to put Gucci Mane, the person that gave me my first opportunity in music, and Rae Sremmurd, the debut artist from my [imprint, Eardrummer], on what’s both [Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane’s] biggest record ever, and the first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 for both, is something I could have never imagined or dreamed of.”
“I couldn’t have asked for a better moment to be a part of,” he continued.
The hype behind the record reached peaked levels last week when Paul McCartney, one of two surviving members of the Beatles, co-signed the track with his own rendition of the #MannequinChallenge.
“Black Beatles” is one of two rap tracks that are featured in this week’s Billboard Hot 100 top 10, soaring above D.R.A.M.’s “Broccoli,” which sits at the No. 9 spot.
