Eminem & Royce 5’9
Bad Meets Evil (Eminem & Royce 5’9)

Eminem and Royce Da 5’9” have met a new streaming milestone for their remarkable joint album.

Formally, they came together under the Bad Meets Evil brand in 1998. The duo released the double single, “Nuttin’ to Do” and “Scary Movies”, but soon broke up due to Royce’s feud with D12. It took them years to get over the rift until Proof’s tragic death in 2006 put many things into perspective and showed the fragility of life and relationships.

The two rap stars reunited after Marshall had signed Slaughterhouse to Shady Records. In 2011, Bad Meets Evil dropped “Hell: The Sequel”. The critics and the public alike warmly welcome the release. There is still no consensus on whether it is an EP or an LP. Two songs, “Living Proof” and q“Echo”, were leaked before the release and subsequently taken off the album, making it just nine tracks long. They appeared in a deluxe version of “Hell: The Sequel”, so they are not lost to the general public.

“Hell: The Sequel” debuted at No.1 on the US Billboard 200 chart with sales of 171,000. The RIAA certified it Gold two months after the release date. The certification has not been updated since; however, by 2021, the album had moved over 1 million copies in the US and became eligible for Platinum.

Now, it celebrates the milestone of 700 million streams on Spotify. It is the least streamed album for Eminem and the most streamed album for Royce 5’9. And the only one in existence for Bad Meets Evil.
