I guess I'm looking foward to Rihanna aswell...I mean, I didn't LOVE her last CD, but she's just hot now and I want to see where she goes artistically. I see her I mean her producers leaning her to do a pop/rock leaning album. She's just so funky! I also predict she will be bald in her next album because her hair can't get much shorter!
I know this is not the place for this, but I just find this so cool about "Lose Yourself"
"Lose Yourself" is the most successful single of Eminem's mainstream career. It had a 12-week run at #1 in the United States & Australia, and topped the charts in many other countries as well, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand and Denmark among others.
According to the Guinness Book Of World Records "Lose Yourself" became the Longest Running Single at Number One for a Rap Artist making it the most successful rap song in history.
"Lose Yourself"'s impressive run kept several top contenders for the #1 spot from ever reaching #1, including Jay-Z, Nelly, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, and especially Missy Elliott, whose single "Work It" was at #2 for 10 weeks.
The song went on to receive the Academy Award for Best Original Song (the first time a rap song ever won this award), upsetting the favored song "The Hands That Built America" by U2.
This was the first time in 14 years the winner of the Best Original Song category was not performed at the ceremony.
The American Film Institute later ranked it #93 on their list of the 100 Greatest Songs from American Films.
At the Grammy Awards of 2004, "Lose Yourself" became Eminem's second career nomination for Record of the Year (following "Without Me"), and the first rap song ever to be nominated for Song of the Year. It won Best Male Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Song, which was a brand new category at the time.
At #166, "Lose Yourself" is the highest ranked of the three songs from the 21st century featured in the 2004 List of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time (joining "Stan" at #290). Outkast's "Hey Ya!" was the other, at #180.
The song (more specifically the tune rather than theme) is also an inspiration to Keane's "Nothing in My Way" as stated by Tim Rice-Oxley in the Keane podcast.
