Em since has achieved yet another big win — one that admittedly felt inevitable, all things considered. Still, it doesn’t make the feat any less impressive. As of now, Eminem‘s “Lose Yourself” has officially surpassed one billion streams on Spotify, the first of his vast catalog to pull it off. Not only that, but it also stands as one of the only songs from the 2000s to hit the mark, second only to Jason Mraz’s infectious anthem “I’m Yours.”
Clearly, Eminem’s iconic 8 Mile single has reached insane levels of universality, with its motivational themes resonating across all walks of life. While many would argue that Eminem’s catalog boasts plenty of stronger tracks, it goes without saying that “Lose Yourself” marked a major turning point for the once-titled “King Of Controversy,” a transitional moment that served to bring the parents onto his team. Congratulations to Eminem for pulling this one off — how long before another Slim Shady single surpasses the billion mark?
