Eminem has so many major records that it’s hard to remember which ones he hasn’t set yet. But on Monday (January 10), Marshall found another new milestone when he announced that his YouTube subscriber number had passed the 50 million mark; at press time, the number had already risen to 50.4 million.
“Now how the hell did this metamorphosis happen? From standing in corners and porches, just rapping,'” Slim Shady tweeted alongside a 46-second supercut of some of his most beloved clips, including snippets from “My Name Is”, “The Real Slim Shady”, “Stan” and many more. The verse of his 2002 Eminem show The single “Sing For the Moment” was a fitting nod to Marshall Mathers’ rise from unknown Detroit battle rapper to one of the most successful MCs of all time.
It’s no surprise his YT subscriber numbers are so showy, as Em has a handful of videos with over a billion views, including the clips for “Without Me”, as well as “Rap God”, “Love the Way You Lie” and “Not Afraid”. With over 50 million, Eminem overtook Taylor Swift to take the 7 spot on the list of most subscribed YouTube artists, just behind Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Marshmello and BTS; Justin Bieber (67 million) and Blackpink (71.3 million) top the tally.
With Super Bowl LVI just a month away (February 13), Marshall prepares to take the stage for what promises to be one of SB’s most epic halftime shows ever alongside Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamer.
The free Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show mobile app launched last month, offering complimentary experiences during the show and exclusive content drops near the top 12 minutes of music. The app offers early alerts on Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show sweepstakes for coveted items such as passes, flights, hotels, and soccer balls signed by all five performers, and other freebies .
