American rapper, songwriter, record producer, record executive and actor Marshall Bruce Mathers III well known professionally as Eminem hits 1 billion views on youtube on his song titled “Rap God” which he released in 2013.
“Rap God” by Eminem packs 1,560 words into a fast and furious 6 min 4 sec – that’s a tongue-twisting average of 4.28 words per second! In one 15-second segment alone, “Slim Shady” spits 97 words (6.46 words per second) at an incredible super speed.
“Rap God” also helped Eminem set the record for the most simultaneous Top 20 hits on the US Hot 100 as a lead solo artist. “The Monster” (No.3), “Berzerk” (No.15), “Survival” (No.16) and “Rap God” (No.17) were all in the Top 20 on 16 November 2013. Only The Beatles, with six simultaneous Top 20 hits in April-May 1964, can better Eminem’s achievement among lead artists. 50 Cent, T-Pain and Lil Wayne have all had four songs in the Top 20 at the same time, but all were featured artists on at least one track.
His song became the third to reach 1 billion views after his feature on “Love The Way You Lie” with Rihanna and “Not Afraid”.
Earlier this year, the rapper released a surprising album, which is his 11th studio album on a go.
Eminem‘s previous album “Kamikaze” was also released in 2018 without being announced in advance.
