After the viral success of the #MannequinChallenge, Rae Sremmurd earned their first-ever No. 1 single on the Hot 100 with "Black Beatles" in November. The duo of Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi unseated The Chainsmokers from the top spot with their Gucci Mane-assisted hit. On Monday, Billboard announced the Rae Sremmurd had repeated their success and retained the No. 1 spot on the charts for the second week in a row.
The song was streamed 54.1 million times since November 10, up 25% from the previous week, making the track the most-streamed single since Adele's "Hello" racked up 61.6 million upon its debut in 2015. "Black Beatles" was downloaded 154,000 times in the past week.
