Rae Sremmurd's "Black Beatles" is their first #1, but it's far from their first hit.

Rae Sremmurd's "Black Beatles" has just topped the Billboard Hot 100, an honor reserved for only the biggest of hits. The song was propelled by its use in the Mannequin Challenge an internet craze that chose Sremm's record as its soundtrack. While the song may not have become quite as big as it is without the help of a meme, the songwriting of members (and brothers) Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi has broken into the Hot 100 quite a few times before (6 to be exact). In celebration of "Black Beatles" becoming the biggest song in the country (and finally knocking The Chainsmokers off their 12-week streak in the top spot), we're looking back at the collection of hits Rae Sremmurd have blessed us with since emerging with "No Flex Zone" in 2014.
