'Swang' might be the new 'Black Beatles,' but this is one track you can't stand still for.

How did you spend your 24th birthday? For Rae Sremmurd member Swae Lee, he and partner-in-rhyme Slim Jimmy, took the stage of NBC's Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to perform their hit "Swang," with a new arrangement from the Roots that makes the already lush track even more hypnotic.

As YouTube commenters are quite to point out, seeing an entirely live arrangement of "Swang" really showcases how the birthday boy can hit and sustain those high notes. A bearded Jimmy Fallon seems particularly excited about the performance, as his zeal afterwards seemed even high by "giggling Fallon" standards.

"Swang" comes off of SremmLife2, which is quickly approaching spending an entire calendar year on the Billboard 200 charts. If this isn't enough Rae Sremmurd for you, they can also be found alongside Lil Yachty on the remix of Khalid's "Young, Dumb and Broke."
