Eminem has been a busy man. Between his upstart spaghetti restaurant in Detroit to squashing beef with Nick Cannon and working on music with Snoop Dogg, it’s no secret that Shady is one of the hardest workers in the rap game.

If the numbers are to be believed, the hard work is paying off. Eminem finished in the top ten highest gainers on Spotify this week. The incredible part, though, is that he’s the only rapper on the list.

The next closest artists to Eminem were Doja Cat, XXXTentation at #15, and Drake at #20. In a world where hip hop is struggling to get to the top of the charts, Shady has once again proved himself as the king.

The rest of the chart is made up of pop artists. Names like Billie Elish, BTS, Ed Sheeran, and Olivia Rodrigo still stand above Eminem.


You can take a look at the chart, current as of October 11, below. It’s shocking to see such little representation for rap, but Eminem is definitely still carrying the torch.
