Eminem can now add the “#1 Christian song” to his long list of accomplishments. According to ChartData, the legendary Detroit MC, alongside DJ Khaled and Kanye West, reached No. 1 on the Billboard 100 Hot Christian Songs chart with their latest collaboration, “USE THIS GOSPEL.”
The three-minute track finds Em in uncharted territory as he raps from a place of spiritual maturity, giving thanks to God for his gift of rapping and his life. Shady also takes the time to address people who look up to him, hating him at first, loving him, then hating him again.
“Comparing godliness to an atheist/But I got ’em delirious/In the midst of my bickering/I’ve got genius inspiration to draw from them/Pen and paper, I knock ’em out,” a meticulously meticulous Slim Shady raps. “I woke up on stage at a concert / The whole place looked like a mosh pit / The Bible by my side like a gun with a gift from God / Every day I thank God for / That’s why I give back so much homage/Praise to Jesus, I will always.”
The track originally appeared on Kanye West’s 2019 LP jesus is king but was remixed for Khaled’s latest, GOD HAS MADE. Producer “Another One” GOD HAS MADE released on August 25, 2022 and featured guest appearances from Drake, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, John Legend, Lil Baby, City Girls, Latto, and more.
