Eminem‘s Kamikaze has been touted as a return to form by many fans, and while no traditional single preceded the drop, the rapper still managed to land his biggest commercial hits in years. And, in what might be a refreshing twist for day-one fans, Em’s latest singles eschewed the pop-formula that permeated his early albums, instead putting his lyrical prowess firmly in the spotlight. The move paid dividends, as Billboard confirms Eminem’s Joyner Lucas collaboration “Lucky You” and introduction “The Ringer” both found their way in the Hot 100’s top 10, at number six and eight respectively.
It’s a big milestone for Em, who saw his last top 10 single with 2014’s “The Monster,” which kept in line with the aforementioned crossover formula. Clearly, the masses appreciated Eminem’s lyrical onslaught, with both selections featuring excellent rhyming from the legendary rapper. Not only that, but chartdata points out another milestone, finding Eminem entering the ranks of an exclusive club. Apparently, Em joins here.
