Rae Sremmurd Do 'Black Beatles' on 'Colbert' for Beatles' 'Ed Sullivan Show' Anniversary

There's no doubt Rae Sremmurd are the new fresh-faced rock stars of our generation thanks to "Black Beatles" (read why here). And by chance, the duo's performance of the single on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert just happened to fall on some legendary rock stars' major anniversary.

"Fifty-three years ago today, The Beatles made their live American television debut on this stage," Colbert pointed out prior to Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi taking the lead. Then, the brothers jumped right into their swagged out vibes alongside Colbert’s house band, Jon Batiste and Stay Human. 

Rae Sremmurd have brought "Black Beatles" for TV shows plenty of times before. But doing it on the anniversary of the Fab Four's debut performance on The Ed Sullivan Show is nothing short of special. The only thing missing was the bevy of shrieking teenage girls!
