This iconic Shady single off “The Marshall Mathers LP” is his fourth to earn the streaming milestone of 1 billion plays on the platform.
It is also his third solo track to show these impressive numbers, as Em’s No.2 on Spotify, “‘Till I Collapse”, is recorded with Nate Dogg. His next song to arrive at the 1 Billion Club is also expected to be a collaboration, a joint with Rihanna, “Love The Way You Lie”.
