Eminem has released incredible new visuals for his new Guinness World Records-breaking single, “Godzilla.” I think this easily cracks Eminem’s top 5 videos of all-time list, with Cole Bennett of Lyrical Lemonade completely crushing the assignment before him.
“If you were hoping that an Eminem album released in 2020 would be less offensive, violent, or controversial, this album isn’t for you.” – Apple Music
The single, which features recently deceased Chicago rapper Juice WRLD, is one of the biggest in Em’s career in the digital era, nearing the 200 million mark on just Spotify alone.
Godzilla “debuted at number one in Finland and on both the UK Singles Chart and the Irish Singles Chart, becoming Eminem’s tenth and eighth number-one single in the UK and Ireland, respectively, as well as the first for Juice WRLD posthumously and in total in both countries.”
The song is Juice WRLD’s first posthumous release following his fatal seizure on December 8, 2019 as a result of a drug overdose.
A dedication to Juice is featured at the end of the new video which should give Bennett (J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa) serious consideration for some “video of the year” nominations. In just over 8 hours, while trending at #1 on YouTube, the video has been viewed 4,976,080 times at the time of this post being published.
“Godzilla” and the Music To Be Murdered By album it’s featured on can be found on various digital streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify via Shady, Aftermath and Interscope Records.
Along with Juice WRLD, Music To Be Murdered By features guest appearances by Young M.A, Royce da 5’9″, White Gold, Ed Sheeran, Black Thought, Q-Tip, Denaun, Anderson .Paak, Joell Ortiz, KXNG Crooked, and Don Toliver.
