Lose Yourself also can be defined as the most successful Eminem so far. This song was released in 2002 with the movie “8 Mile”. This is kind of a motivational song that was able to create a positive and winning mind in many people.

Not just the lyrics, but also the music composition has made it a masterpiece.

The moment, you own it, you better never let it go (Go)
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
You better lose yourself in the music

The most famous lines of the song which are enriched with the powerful guitar riff and the commanding voice of Eminem, make the listeners goose bumped.  

This song was on the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for more than 3 months which means the most famous song in the USA for almost 12 weeks! Lose Yourself won the Oscar award and Grammy award for Best Rap Songs and Best Solo Rap Performance. This song shares a universal message not to give up your dreams and opportunities you meet.

2. Crack a Bottle (2009) [with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent]

For Crack a Bottle, Eminem collaborated with famous rap legends, Dr. Dre and 50 Cent. Their combination drove this song to the Billboard Hot 100.

“Oh! Ladies and gentlemen
The moment you’ve all been waiting for
In this corner, weighing 175 pounds
With a record of 17 rapes, 400 assaults, and 4 murders
The undisputed, most diabolical villain in the world
Slim Shady! (Let’s go!)

This song was released in 2009. The playful lyrics, catchy beats, and playful vibe contained in this song have made it a #1 hit in the rap world. Once you hear the name of this song, you might start to dance in your mind just like me!

The combination of fame and legends in the rap industry has made this song more famous all over the world.

3. Not Afraid (2010)

Not Afraid was released in 2010, which made a significant moment in Eminem’s life. This song was released with his album “Recovery”, which is kind of a personal reflection of Eminem’s life. Through the songs in this album, including Not Afraid, Eminem shares his hard period of drug addiction and recovery.

Through “Not Afraid” Eminem shares the message of hope and resilience.

(I’m not afraid) Yeah
(To take a stand) It’s been a ride
(Everybody) I guess I had to
(Come take my hand) Go to that place to get to this one
(We’ll walk this road together, through the storm)

A humble request for the whole world to join with him to solve their struggles. I believe that this song is a perfect example to exhibit the humanity of Eminem. It’s true that he has faced many problems in life and he has been addicted to bad habits, but as a person, he shows his good quality by making his songs a mental therapy for listeners.

This song earned Eminem the second Grammy Award for Best Solo Rap Performance.

4. Love the Way You Lie (2010)

Eminem released Love the Way Lie in 2010 with Rihanna the pop star. This seems to be based on the bad and painful relationships that both artists have experienced in their lives. Just by knowing this fact you may remember Kim, Eminem’s ex-wife.

Rihanna begins the chorus Just gonna stand there and watch me burn?which creates a feeling of loss and furthers Eminem’s verse giving a feeling of raw and honest love that is damaged by a traumatic relationship. This song is a mix of anger, regret, and passion.

The powerful combination of Rihanna’s and Eminem’s voices made this song top in Billboard 100 Hot in the USA for seven weeks and this song also achieved commercial success reported as the best-selling single at that time.

5. The Monster (2013)

Just after three years, the combination of Eminem’s and Rihanna’s voices created another super hit in 2013. “The Monster” was a song in Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 album.

This song is also based on the personal experiences of these two artists which are based on fame and mental health.

“I’m friends with the monster that’s under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You’re tryin’ to save me, stop holdin’ your breath

The Monster – Eminem & Rihanna

When you look at this piece of lyrics in “The Monster” you don’t need any more descriptions about this song. They describe the challenges and the pressure they experience in their life because of the public eye and their fame.

The catchy lyrics and beat made this song at the top of the Billboard 100 Hot. This is another perfect example of the perfect and wide ability of Eminem and his music’s compelling ability.

So, guys, here we are about to address the end of this chapter. And at the end of this, I would like to express my opinions as an electrified fan of Eminem. Though these five songs are reported as the #1 hit in the music industry, all his songs are perfect as always!
