Eminem has just hit a huge milestone with his new single, ‘Houdini.’

This latest track has officially become the biggest streaming debut of Eminem’s legendary career. Featuring a sample from the Steve Miller Band’s 1982 hit ‘Abracadabra,’ the song has garnered significant attention, including praise from Steve Miller himself. Eminem released ‘Houdini’ on Friday with a music video that throws back to his own 2002 song ‘Without Me,’ featuring cameos from Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Pete Davidson, and more.

One of the most talked-about lyrics in the song mentions Megan Thee Stallion, with Eminem rapping,

“If I was to ask for Megan Thee

Stallion if she would collab with me

Would I really have a shot at a feat?

I don’t know but I’m glad to be

Back, like.”

Steve Miller took to social media to commend Eminem, calling him a ‘timeless originator’ who respects his musical influencers while building something fresh. He said, ‘There aren’t many artists who take the time or make the effort to stand up for themselves and credit and respect their influencers at the same time. Marshall Mathers you are an exception and on my short list of people who respect the art. To be included in your process feels good while I’m still singing and playing the music I love. I’m Honored.’

The new single is the first from Eminem’s upcoming album, ‘The Death Of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce).’ Stay tuned for more updates on this highly anticipated project.

Eminem’s ‘Houdini’ is not just breaking streaming records but also paying homage to his musical influences, proving once again his versatile artistry.
