Last November, Rae Sremmurd's "Black Beatles" rode a meme wave all the way to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Mike Will Made-It-produced single was the duo's first No. 1, their first entrance into the top 10, and their first top 20 positioning since "No Type" in 2014. Needless to say, 400 million video plays later, the record is a monster. With "Black Beatles" still riding high at No. 14 after 23 weeks on the charts, brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi have already begun their quest to achieve a second consecutive smash hit. Since it's official release as a single on January 24, the P-Nasty produced "Swang," which can be found on the deluxe edition of Rae Sremmurd's sophomore album SremmLife 2, has quietly been making noise. On Thursday (February 16), the "Swang" video was released by Eardruma Records and Interscope, and in less than 24 hours, it has already racked up nearly 3 million views. The song has taken a minor backslide on the Billboard Hot 100 over the last two weeks, falling from No. 61 to its current spot at No. 77, but its current trajectory is pointed upwards thanks to the increased awareness following the release of its video accompaniment. Ultimately, no matter how high "Swang" charts, it will never be "Black Beatles." In fact, Rae Sremmurd will most likely never again reach No. 1. That's not to say the duo won't be able to see future charting success but rather speaks to the difficulty in reaching the top of the music mountain. For example, Drake has earned 11 top 10 singles during his current seven-year career, but he didn't earn his first No. 1 ("One Dance") until last May. Following up a chart-topping hit single is never easy—unless, of course, you're Drake—but it's very likely Rae Sremmurd have a second consecutive hit on their hands. It's just not "Black Beatles."

Song Lyrics:

Um, it's nasty
Uh, it's nasty
Uhmm
Know some young Ni**as like to swang, uhmm
Know some young Ni**as like to swang
Know some young Ni**as like to swang

[Hook: Swae Lee]
Know some young Ni**as like to swang
Know some young Ni**as like to swang
Big bank take a little bank
Everyday spillin' up drank
She want the whole crew, shawty brave
When the money talks, what is there to say?
Blow away, watch it blow away
When I die can't take it to the grave
Hop out, drop, top, f**k y'all talkin' I need it right now
Cash in the air, yeah, what goes up gotta come down

[Swae Lee]
Gettin' dough ain't a thing change
Coasting, grippin' grain
Goin' through the money like a phase
Don't say my name in vain
I'm so glad that you came
All these bad bi**hes gettin' slain
Broke a*s Ni**a get a clue
All these Ni**as know how we do

[Hook: Swae Lee]
Know some young Ni**as like to swang
Know some young Ni**as like to swang
Big bank take a little bank
Everyday spillin' up drank
She want the whole crew, shawty brave
When the money talks, what is there to say?
Blow away, watch it blow away
When I die can't take it to the grave
Hop out, drop, top, f**k y'all talkin' I need it right now
Cash in the air, yeah, what goes up gotta come down

[Slim Jxmmi]
I know some young Ni**as from the bottom
They'll do anything for a dollar
I coulda went to school to be a doctor
But I dropped out and chose to be a baller
Switchin' lanes, spittin' game in my new drop
Still on a paper chase that don't ever stop
Everybody with me family, that's how we rock
Party at the mansion, we bout to flood the spot
Sremmlife!

[Hook: Swae Lee]
Know some young Ni**as like to swang
Know some young Ni**as like to swang
Big bank take a little bank
Everyday spillin' up drank
She want the whole crew, shawty brave
When the money talks, what is there to say?
Blow away, watch it blow away
When I die can't take it to the grave
