Eminem lands first No. 1 on Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart

Eminem is back at the top of a Billboard chart. However, this time the rap god earned his first-ever No. 1 song on the Hot Christian Songs chart.

Last week, Billboard announced its updated ranking. DJ Khalid “Use This Gospel (Remix)” featuring Em and Kanye West reached No. 1 on the Hot Christian Songs chart, giving Eminem his first hit on the non-secular chart. The irony of Shady appearing on a Christian song list didn’t go unnoticed by people who commented on the revelation on Twitter.

“Who made Eminem reach number one on Billboard’s Christian Bingo 2022 charts?” one person tweeted.

“This year, the ‘Christians’ have allowed their @billboard the top spots in the rankings will be occupied by Eminem, Kanye West and DJ Khaled. Christianity is a fucking joke,” someone else said.

“Anything is possible,” posted the official Rock the Bells Twitter page.

No one would have bet on Eminem topping the Christian charts, as the Detroit rapper is known for his unabashedly profane lyrics, especially early in his career. Eminem delivered an unusually tame verse for his contribution to witty rap that appears on DJ Khaled’s latest album, God made.

“The Bible by my side like a gun with a gift from God / Every day I thank God for / That’s why I pay so much homage / Praises to Jesus, I always will,” he spits.

DJ Khaled landed his fourth No. 1 album when God made debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart last week. The 18-track compilation features guest appearances from Jay-Z, Drake, Lil Baby, Lil Wayne, Juice Wrld, Travis Scott, 21 Savage and more.
