Watch Rae Sremmurd Perform “Black Beatles” With Jon Batiste on Colbert

“Black Beatles” may no longer be #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it will remain SPIN’s #1 song of 2016 forever. The good young men of Rae Sremmurd stopped by The Late Show to run through the Mannequin-Challenge-inspiring tune, with some live instrumentation (keytar!) provided by Colbert’s in-house band, Jon Batiste and Stay Human. Jxmmi shouts out his Instagram handle; Colbert points out that The Beatles themselves played on the same stage over 50 years ago for their live television debut. It’s good, cockles-warming stuff.
