Eminem’s album ‘Kamikaze’ is on track to break records
Eminem has proven once again that he’s a hit maker.
The rapper’s latest album, “Kamikaze,” is quickly rising to the top of the charts after its surprise release last week.
The Detroit native is currently on track for his album to debut No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The feat would mark Eminem’s ninth No. 1 album, according to Nielsen Music. His previous seven albums also debuted at No. 1. If Slim Shady pulls it off again, he’ll be the first artist in history with eight consecutive album entries in the top spot.
Across the pond, he’s on track to have his ninth straight British No. 1 album. Eminem currently shares the record for consecutive No. 1 albums with Led Zeppelin and ABBA, according to UK’s Official Chart.
“Kamikaze,” produced with his long-time collaborator Dr. Dre, is Eminem’s tenth studio album. Cover art for the 13-track collection features a fighter pilot crashing his aircraft with the words, “FU-2” on the tail.
Eminem get political with a reference to President Trump on the album.
“Agent Orange just sent the Secret Service / to meet in person to see if I really think of hurting him,” he raps on “The Ringer. “Or ask if I’m linked to terrorists / I said, ‘Only when it comes to ink and lyricists.'”
This isn’t the first time he’s criticized Trump. At the BET Awards last year, Eminem called the President a “racist grandpa” during a freestyle rap.
