Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane Win Top Rap Collaboration for “Black Beatles” at 2017 Billboard Music Awards
The win was announced on the award show's official Twitter account. The Mississippi duo and Guwop beat out D.R.A.M. and Lil Yachty's “Broccoli,” Zay Hilfigerr and Zayion McCall's “JuJu On That Beat (TZ Anthem)," Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello's “Bad Things" and Migos and Lil Uzi Vert's “Bad and Boujee.”
The single has already been certified as a hit sales wise, reaching platinum status and soaring to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 last November. The video for the song famously sparked the Mannequin Challenge.
