Chart Check [Hot 100]: Rae Sremmurd’s ‘Black Beatles’ Marks MIKE WILL MADE IT’s First #1 Hit

Published: Tuesday 15th Nov 2016 by Rashad

We’re pretty sure standing still is the last thing rap duo Rae Sremmurd were doing when they found out the viral mannequin challenge shot their latest single, ‘Black Beatles,’ all the way to the top of charts.  As we reported here, the Gucci Mane-assisted tune is nestled into the #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 this week – a move that abruptly ended the long-lasting reign of The Chainsmokers’ hit tune ‘Closer.’

However, to the surprise of many, the song not only comes as Sremmurd’s inaugural chart-topper but also the first of its producer, MIKE WILL MADE IT.  MIKE, whose resume lists hits from the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, Future, Lil Wayne, and many more, has never seen any of his wealth of hits top the Hot 100…until now.

Tuck in below to see who else joins Rae and Mike on the refreshed TGJ Chart Check this week:

      Didn’t see this coming.
      So happy Mariah gets to keep that 16-week number one title.

    • Danzou November 16, 2016

      Yes it’s very hard to get a number one. That’s why joseline will never get one.

      • Maurice November 16, 2016

    I really wanna understand why our favorite artist (Beyoncé, Rihanna, Lady Gaga etc) have a hard time topping the charts but yet others get it so easily. Anyways, congrats to them. Let’s be happy for everyone

  5. Mase November 16, 2016

    I feel like Sorry and also Formation deserved to go #1 but charts are weird nowadays. Who even gets them anymore

  6. King November 16, 2016

    Its hard because artist that been out don’t want to follow the Trend specially Beyonce. She makes quality music. But these kids want that ratchet bass songs that everyone from future to drake is making. A lot of the music sounds alike.
    However, Beyonce sells out arenas so she’s fine.
    Congrats to these young men I like this song

    Mike could have had it earlier with Faded dahhhhling! But you know my record label… always picking the wrong singles. I mean, who even friggin’ puts a cover of I Want To Know What Love Is as a second single. But it is what it is dahhhling!

    • Mariah Carey November 16, 2016

      PS: I have already asked this before my dahhhlings but some of you are so unhelpful. Sort of like Roc N’ Roe’s nannies dahhhling that’s why they are continuously being fired!
      But how do I get rid of this hideous Lisa Simpson or whatever avatar dahhling! It’s making me feel these bleak emotions! Love ya Lambs!

      • grapejuicefan November 16, 2016

        You creative b**** ????

      • Mariah Carey November 16, 2016

        Thank you dahhling! I am creative. I’m a singer, song-writer and producer. People don’t understand that I write my own songs. I’m heavily involved in the creative process. I love a collaborative moment as well dahhling!

      • Mike November 16, 2016 Sign up with your email and you’ll be rid of that Lindsey Logan thing dahhhling

      • Mariah Carey November 16, 2016

        Thank you dahhling!

  8. November 16, 2016

    gratz to them.

  9. Keri Qween November 16, 2016

    Congrats young turn up kings. Heyyy swae lee ?

  10. Starxavi November 16, 2016

    Well this is great marketing here! Making this the official song for the Mannequin Challenge was a sure help to bring this song to number one! It became a phenomenon and broadened its audience tremendously. KUDOS!
