These two ‘Black Beatles’ covers are glorious

We need more, please and thanks

9:29 AMWhen you’ve got the No. 1 song in the country, people want to be like you. That’s the position that Rae Sremmurd is in. According to Billboard, the hip-hop duo’s Black Beatles banger is at the top of the Hot 100 chart. We need not extol the virtues of the track, but let us guide you toward a couple of the more incredible covers we’ve seen in a while. First, behold the majesty.

I could listen to this all day. My man even hits the chorus and the ad-libs. He needs to release the full video. Secondly, there’s Nicki Minaj putting her twist on things to complete perfection. Nicki has a real skill at taking songs by guys and adapting them to a more female-centric theme, and she’s dang good at it. (Language: NSFW) Let’s hope this means Nicki’s next project is coming soon.
