Big bang: ‘Eminem holds world record when his song reaches 1 billion streams’

2013 track was originally released on ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2.’

Eminem’s “Rap God” is already a Guinness World Record holder, and now it’s a member of Spotify’s Billions Club as well.

The 2013 single has passed the 1 billion streams threshold on the streaming service, making it Eminem’s eighth single to cross the digital barrier.

“Rap God” was the third single from Eminem’s 2013 album “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” following “Berzerk” and “Survival.” The song features Eminem rapping at an accelerated clip, at one point cycling through 97 words in 15 seconds. The song features 1,560 words in all, as clocked by Guinness, which honored Em with a “Most words in a hit single” award in 2015.

“Rap God,” which makes references to Thor, Rapunzel, Heavy D and the Boyz, Bill Clinton, Monica Lewinsky, 2Pac, General Zod and Dale Earnhardt, hit No. 7 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. In addition to “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” it is also featured on Eminem’s 2022 hits compilation “Curtain Call 2.”

Eminem performed the song as part of his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2022.

In Spotify’s list of tracks that have crossed 1 billion streams, “Rap God” joins previous Eminem entries “Mockingbird,” which crossed the 1 billion streams mark in March, as well as “Godzilla,” “The Real Slim Shady,” “Love the Way You Lie,” “Lose Yourself,” “‘Till I Collapse” and “Without Me.” Eminem has three more tracks — “Stan,” which has 971 million streams, “The Monster,” which has 911 million and “Not Afraid,” which has 905 million — which will likely join the ranks soon.

Em’s Oscar-winning “8 Mile” theme “Lose Yourself” is the rapper’s most popular song on the service, and is closing in on 2 billion streams.

In all, nearly 500 songs have made it into Spotify’s Billions Club. Artists with more songs than Eminem on the list include Justin Bieber (14), Bad Bunny, Drake (12 each), Ed Sheeran, the Weeknd, Rihanna (11 each), Post Malone, XXXTentacion, Bruno Mars, Ariana Grande (10 each), Coldplay and Dua Lipa (9 each).
