Eminem's 'Rap God' passes one billion views on YouTube


Eminem’s ‘Rap God’ Video Surpasses 1 Billion YouTube Views

Eminem enjoyed a massive surge in streams and track downloads last week after his surprise performance of “Lose Yourself” at the Oscars, but that’s not the only song in his back catalog to benefit from renewed attention. The rapper’s 2013 hit “Rap God” just reached a major milestone as well, as its music video has surpassed 1 billion YouTube views.

The song, which peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2013, marks Eminem’s third video to hit 1 billion views, joining a pair of 2010 chart-topping hits, “Love the Way You Lie” and “Not Afraid.” On Friday, the rapper implored fans to push the video over the threshold, tweeting a lyric from the song (“Everybody loves to root for a nuisance”) with a link to a view counter on his website.

Although Eminem has racked up over 1 billion views on three separate videos, he doesn’t claim the most-viewed rap video of all time. That would be Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s smash hit “See You Again,” which has a staggering 4.418 billion plays. The most-viewed music video of all time belongs to Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” which towers over the competition at 6.632 billion views.
