As the Mannequin Challenge propels Rae Sremmurd’s single “Black Beatles” to No. 1 this week on the Billboard Hot 100, Nicki Minaj puts her own spin on the viral hit with “Black Barbies.”
Nicki’s bars are witty and blunt, reminding her peers why she’s the reigning queen of rap. She also shouts out the U.S. president-elect, but not exactly in the way you’re thinking.
“I see these silly n***as flexing, it’s a no zone / You gon’ be floating in them rivers like you know Joan,” she raps over the Mike Will Made It production. “Island girl, Donald Tr**p want me go home / Still pull up with my wrist looking like a snow cone.”
“Beatles,” featuring Gucci Mane, dethrones The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” after twelve weeks atop the chart. The song is Rae Sremmurd’s highest-charting to date and even scored the endorsement from former Beatles singer Paul McCartney with a Mannequin Challenge of his own.
