Most Popular Eminem Songs

Eminem was rapping when he was 14, but it was not till 1999 that he was released by a big label, and released his first album that sold more than 1000 copies. The album was The Slim Shady LP and it won the best rap album of the year award at that years Grammy’s. After that, his popularity has never waned, and he has continued to produce hits after hits. Here we review five of his most popular songs. The popularity is gauged not just by sales, but by a combination of sales and the impact that they had on his career and image.

The songs are not in any particular order, except in an order that gives the best context to the artist that is Eminem. For that we start from, where else, but the beginning.

The Real Slim Shady (album: The Real Slim Shady, 1999)

The first major hit from his first popular album. The Real Slim Shady introduced the world to Eminem – Detroit and the Hip Hop industry already knew who he was. This song let the world know too. The line “Will the real Slim Shady please stand up” from this song became one of the most popular lines from a rap song.

Lose Yourself (from OST of movie “8 Mile”, 2003)

Not every artist gets a movie made on his life within 4 years of his first major release. Eminem did, which he then went on to use as a vehicle for some awesome tracks. This song introduces you to the struggles of the guy from Detroit who became Eminem.

Stan, featuring Dido ( album: The Marshall Mathers LP, 2000)

A song that has been called one of the greatest songs ever. It is a tale of tragedy and sadness, and of a heinous crime. The song “Thank You” from Dido is sampled in Stan and sampled beautifully.

Sing For the Moment, featuring Steven Tyler and Joe Perry (music single, 2003)

A lesser mortal’s creation would have been totally dominated by the epic Aerosmith song “Dream On” sampled herein, but Eminem’s lyrics hold on their own, and create a song that syncs beautifully with the beauty that is “Dream On”. If you have ever felt down or hobbled by critics and obstacles, listen to Eminem rap beautifully on how he manages with Steven Tyler singing in the background.

White America (The Eminem Show, 2002)

This has happened before – a lot of great, or even greater when you consider that among them was Chuck Berry, rock artists who came before Elvis Presley and The Beatles never had a chance to be as popular as them. And it happened with Eminem, he was an outlier – a lot of great rappers were and are black. Here Eminem talks about why that is so. Carefully listen how he also talks about how his skin color was a disadvantage to him when he was starting – which tells us racism is not is not just another name for one color – it’s an attitude we all could do without.
