Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” Hits 1bn on You Tube

Eminem is marking a major milestone.
Back in October, the rapper’s 8 Mile single “Lose Yourself” hit 1 billion streams on Spotify, becoming the first hip-hop song from the 2000s to cross the threshold.
On Wednesday, Marshall Mathers celebrated his latest achievement in a video shared across his social media channels.
“Lose Yourself” was originally released in 2002 as part of the 8 Mile soundtrack.
It became Eminem’s first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, winning two Grammys and an Oscar for Best Original Song in 2003.
Last year, he delivered a surprise performance of the song at the Academy Awards.
