As the Internet winds its way through another round of ridiculous trends and memes, we now find ourselves in the midst of the newest fad: the mannequin challenge. The idea is simple enough. Everybody freezes in place while an independent camera person walks around the scene with Rae Sremmurd‘s “Black Beatles.”
Coming as one of the leading tracks off the hip hop duo’s second studio album, SremmLife 2, it has effectively skyrocketed their already notable career, earning them their highest ever ranking on Billboard‘s Hot 100 Singles chart. It now rests at the No. 9 position, creeping ever closer to The Chainsmokers‘ #1 hit “Closer.”
As fans of the mannequin challenge continue to spread the track worldwide, however, it appears that “Black Beatles” have a significant shot at dethroning the EDM kings. From Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton to professional sports teams and musicians, the world is currently inundated with the catchy and memorable song.
Recently, trap duo Flosstradamus and even Big Gigantic decided to do the challenge themselves during their performances. Now, Party Favor has followed suit and posted his own rendition.
Check it out below, and listen to Rae Sremmurd’s complete track further down.
