“It was a hot song that the world gravitated on.”
Rae Sremmurd‘s “Black Beatles” was dropped as the third single off SremmLife 2, right after “By Chance” and “Look Alive.” Consequentially, the songs received more of an outline than the rest of the songs on the album, and seeing it evolve into a internet wide phenomenon, outfitted with its own Wikipedia page, was a kind of fame that could’ve been easily predicted considering the quality of the songs.
Rae Sremmurd recently came onto ESPN to discuss the success of the impromptu movement, and, prior to the interview beginning, engaged in their own mannequin challenge with the cast of the show. Slim Jxmmi recalled seeing a group of high schoolers doing it and remarking on how “cool twitter is.” Swae Lee said the idea behind it was “real creative.”
Rae Sremmurd also discussed how the Dallas Cowboy‘s and Paul McCartney‘s renditions of the challenge, both viewable below, were amongst their favorites. The interview in its entirety can be viewed here.
