Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” is a sensation no one saw coming, bolstered by a viral phenomenon (the #MannequinChallenge) that defies explanation. Everyone from high school cheer squads to Sir Paul McCartney have embraced the track, and now Nicki Minaj made her own contribution to the phenomenon. The rapper remixed the hit as “Black Barbies,” lending her outside-the-box touch to the rap duo’s track. The result sounds like it’s straight out of Pink Friday.
“Are these bitches drunk?” Nicki wonders. “These bitches ain’t lucid/ Go against the queen, your career will be elusive/ Where your plaques? Where them stocks? Word to NASDAQ/ Bitches ass-back, they was never in my tax-brack.”
Even our president-elect gets a shout-out: “Island girl, Donald Trump want me go home.”
Minaj uploaded the remix through her SoundCloud account; Listen to “Black Barbies” here:
