Eminem’s “Big Weenie” song from his 2004 album Encore is still going viral on Tiktok. After “Mockingbird,” the song from the same album, “Big Weenie” is Slim Shady’s most streamed song on short-form video hosting service.
Yesterday, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s daughter, North West, added the song even more popularity after posting a video of her lipsyncing over “Big Weenie” lyrics: “I don’t understand, Why are you being so mean? You’re a mean, mean man. You’re just jealous of me ’cause you, you just can’t do what I do so instead of just admitting it, you walk around and say all kinds of really mean things about me.” The video already has 22 million views and 3.5 million likes.
This is not the first time Ye’s daughters are enjoying Eminem’s song. Last year, they lip-syinced over “The Real Slim Shady” from The Marshall Mathers LP album. Kanye once even revealed that his daughter’s most favorite song is “Use This Gospel” remix with Eminem.
“EMINEM THANK YOU FOR RAPPING ON THE DR DRE REMIX OF USE THIS GOSPEL I HAVW ALWAYS LOVED AND RESPECTED YOU AND IM HONORED TO HAVE YOU BLESS THIS SONG … ITS ALSO NORTH WEST’S FAVORITE KANYE WEST SONG OF ALL TIME.” Kanye was tweeted.
The song was later released by DJ Khaled on his “God Did” album. It is mainly produced by Dr. Dre with additional vocals done by Sunday Service Choir and Sly Pyper. It interpolates “Best Friend” by Yelawolf, featuring Eminem and Grace N Mercy by Kanye West, featuring Victory. In the song, Eminem drops religious and spiritually-concerned verse and track is a rare example of Slim Shady song that features zero curse words.
As far as “Big Weenie,” the song is doing the numbers nobody would ever expect. It has been very popular on TikTok for a while now which has been reflected on the charts. The track is charting on Shazam and is featured on a Spotify playlist with over 2.8m followers.
