Watch Rae Sremmurd's Historic Performance of 'Black Beatles' on 'The Late Show'

  /  02.10.2017

The “Black Beatles” make history.

Exactly 53 years after The Beatles played New York’s Ed Sullivan Theater, Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi perform their No. 1 smash on “The Late Show Starring Stephen Colbert” on Thursday (Feb. 9).

Not only was it their debut on “The Late Show,” but it was also a collaboration with Jon Batiste and Stay Human, the late night show’s house band.

“Black Beatles” earned Lee and Jxmmi their first No. 1 and some viral fame thanks to the Mannequin Challenge. In fact, Paul McCartney, who is name checked on the song, even played along with the social media craze at one point last year.

That was also a pivotal moment in the duo’s career. “It was a dope phrase,” Swae told Rolling Stone. “I’ve always loved John Lennon’s swag — I like his glasses.” He added: “When you’ve reached a Beatle, it’s the ultimate co-sign.”
