Look, this is a small thing, but take delight where you can find it this week. Last week, “Black Beatles,” a fizzy and excellent Gucci Mane collab from the Mississippi rap duo Rae Sremmurd, entered the Billboard top 10, largely on the strength of the goofy viral #MannequinChallenge crazy. In those #MannequinChallenge videos, people stand frozen, often while (for whatever reason) “Black Beatles” plays in the background. And now a White Beatle has done one. This morning, Paul McCartney posted a #MannequinChallenge video set to “Black Beatles” — to the “Black Beatle, bitch, me and Paul McCartney related” part, no less — and shared it with the caption “Love those Black Beatles.” Check it out below.
