Eminem is by many measures the most successful rapper of all time. Slim Shady has smashed chart records, streaming records, and more. He’s an well-respected actor. He’s been on the public radar since the late 1990s and shows no signs of stopping.
The rapper’s tenth studio album, Kamikaze, has hit yet another major milestone for Eminem. The record has achieved a staggering 2.4 billion streams on Spotify. That’s a massive number fit for a massive star.
Almost every track on the album has over 100 million plays. Only “Nice Guy” featuring Jessie Reyez falls short of the mark. Still, it’s extremely impressive.
Recently, Em’s iconic “The Real Slim Shady” video shattered another lofty mark. The 21-year-old video reached a total of 600 million views on YouTube. Big numbers equals big bucks, so we couldn’t be happier for Shady.
Eminem has sold over 220 million records. He brought rap music to the mainstream and was one of the major crossover artists bridging the 20th and 21st centuries. His mainstream appeal brought an entirely new audience to hip-hop.
Marshall will perform with Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, and Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show. He recently helped celebrate LL Cool J‘s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Eminem’s star just keeps getting brighter.
