Eminem’s admirers consider him to be the Rap God, which he is. The artist is most renowned for his lyrical flow and motivation. His music videos complement his tracks extremely well. The music video for ‘Not Afraid’ has topped 1.6 billion views.
One of Marshal’s most impacting videos is the second to reach the 1.6 billion watch mark. The video brilliantly captures the upbeat theme of the lead track, “Recovery.” Rich Lee directed the video, which helped Eminem earn the MTV Video Music Awards and MTV Video Music Awards Japan.
This contemplative track serves as the first single from Eminem’s seventh studio album, Recovery. Marshall Mathers had intended to release a follow-up to his 2009 album, Relapse, but he changed his mind and went in a new way. He shared his concept on Twitter.
“The music on Recovery came out very different from Relapse, and it deserves its own title.”
“Not Afraid” mirrors the album’s more upbeat tone, with Eminem talking about how he has fought to overcome personal difficulties like his battles with drug addiction. This was the sixteenth number one hit in Billboard Hot 100 history. The lyrics sum it up well.
I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
To take a stand, it's been a ride
Everybody, I guess I had to
Go to that place
To get to this one
Now some of you
Might still be in that place
If you're tryin' to get out
Just follow me
I'll get you there
