Eminem came to No. 3 in 2018 with his Machine Gun Kelly diss track "Killshot," an exceptionally foreseen gutting that broke a YouTube record upon its release. Preceding that, Eminem last suggested the Top 3 of every 2013, besting the outlines with his Rihanna joint effort "The Monster" and hitting No. 3 again with "Berzerk." Notably, "Godzilla" isn't even the best possible lead single off Music to Be Murdered By; that would be "Dimness," the topical ditty that tends to the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. Yet, even without lead single assignment, "Godzilla" had two key segments that transformed it into a spilling powerhouse and perhaps the greatest single as of late.
The first and most obvious,component is the incorporation of Juice WRLD, who kicked the bucket from a seizure a month ago at 21 years old. The rapper saw a 453% spilling increment in the two days after his passing, while two of his collections—Goodbye and Good Riddance and Death Race for Love—came back to the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 the next week. "Godzilla" marks Juice WRLD's first after death execution, and fans clamored to stream and download the track so as to hear more from the late rapper. He conveys one of the catchiest chorales on Music to Be Murdered By, leaving the melodious trapeze artistry in the sections to Eminem.
That is the place the other key selling purpose of "Godzilla" comes in: Eminem raps extremely quick. The studious people at Genius separated the specifics of Eminem's light-speed last refrain: "In the last thirty seconds of the third section, Eminem rapped 224 words (328 syllables) at 7.46 words every second (10.93 syllables every second). Strangely, this is a lot quicker than the world-perceived section in 'Rap God,' where Eminem rapped 6.46 words every second." To be clear, "Rap God" really holds the Guinness world record for "most words in a hit single," checking in at 1,560. By the by, the pinnacle speed of "Godzilla" surpasses the pinnacle speed of "Rap God," making the new track an unquestionable requirement hear for audience members who prize bewildering bars regardless of anything else.
"Godzilla" graphed similarly well on the Streaming Songs and Digital Songs Sales outlines, arriving at No. 3 with 41.1 million U.S. streams and 24,000 downloads, separately. For correlation, that is around 12 million a bigger number of streams than Justin Bieber's "Yummy" earned in its first week (however it trails a long ways behind that tune's 71,000 deals), and it shifted back and forth between the No. 2 and 3 spots on the U.S. Spotify graph each day over the previous week. "Godzilla" is taking care of business to have forceful spilling legs, which should enable the tune to wait in the upper areas of the Hot 100 for some time—on the off chance that not the Top 10, at that point maybe the Top 20. By utilizing his trademark twist speed stream and imparting the spotlight to a hot youthful ability whose misfortune is as yet being grieved, Eminem demonstrated he is as yet a power to be dealt with as a singles craftsman.
