First recorded on an old laptop over a broken guitar, the song now is the highest-charting of all tracks from “Music to Be Murdered By: Side B”.
Elliott Taylor, who was freestyling with Skylar Grey in the tiny room where the song was born, shared the first voice note of what would become an opener on Eminem’s most recent album. He captured his Instagram post with the message of hope to those who fight for their dreams:
Straight up, the song “black magic” @eminem @skylargrey was started on an out of tune broken guitar, in a 400 sqft home with a shitty overheating laptop on a 2ft shelf studio. Here’s the first voice note of us free-styling high af… swipe right to feel the vibes. Never give up on your dreams fam… the greatest things in this world all start off like a shitty design on a bar napkin. You just gotta try, and then keep trying 🤘🤘💥💥🔥🔥
