The song, which features an emotive hook from Beyoncé, yielded mixed reactions from Eminem fans and critics alike but revealed what’s been on the 45-year-old rap god’s mind — pressure.
“Why, are expectations so high?/ Is it the bar I set?/ My arms, I stretch, but I can’t reach/ A far cry from it, or it’s in my grasp, but as/ Soon as I grab, squeeze/ I lose my grip like the flying trapeze/ Into the dark, I plummet/ Now the sky’s blackening, I know the mark’s high/ Butterflies rip apart my stomach/ Knowing that no matter what bars I come with/You’re gonna hark, gripe,” he raps.
