    The nod for Allhiphop Single of the Year 2016 goes to “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd, featuring Gucci Mane, on Interscope Records. It’s the duo’s first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the first for Gucci. Here are a few of the ranking factors used to determine this award:

    Social media & cultural impact: Thanks to that #MannequinChallenge you saw on your Facebook and Twitter timeline, Black Beatles became a huge viral sensation. Its YouTube video also garnered over 251 million views. Black Beatles is a good example of how social media can make a music video crazy popular overnight.

    Radio and streaming: Black Beatles leads the streaming songs chart with 38 million U.S. streams. It’s also No.1 in R&B/Hip-Hop airplay.

    Club impact: Practically every Top 40 and urban DJ in America had Black Beatles on their playlist. Whenever people heard it in a club, they couldn’t help but dance to it.

    Sales impact: Nearly certified Platinum status.

    Music Quality: Produced by Mike Will Made-it, the song fuses old Beatles pop-song melodies on trap rhythms. It really made the song stand out for me.

    So based on these factors, Black Beatles is the Single of the Year.
