The rapper references Donald Trump and El Chapo on ‘Black Barbies’, her remix of the viral hit of the year
Over the last few weeks, Atlanta duo Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” – already one of 2016’s best songs – has become an all-out viral sensation thanks to the #MannequinChallenge, which has been undertaken by everyone from Blac Chyna (while giving birth) to White Beatle Paul McCartney to Rae Sremmurd themselves. The track is currently sitting at #1 in the charts in the USA, and now it’s been given an additional boost thanks to a remix by Nicki Minaj.
Minaj’s flip of the Gucci Mane-featuring original is renamed “Black Barbies”, and sees the rapper reference Donald Trump (“Island girl, Donald Trump want me go home”) and El Chapo (“El Chapo but he crazy like La Quica”) in its lyrics. Minaj previously featured on a remix of Rae Sremmurd’s “No Flex Zone” on 2014, which she also references in her “Black Barbies” verses.
