This was so unexpected! Out of nowhere, Juice WRLD and Eminem are teaming up once again! This time, Benny Blanco is also featured.
Till this day, “Godzilla,” from Eminem’s Music To Be Murdered By album was the only song the two had together. Juice previously listed Em as one of his biggest influences and has frequently referenced his music, most notably on his May 2018 track, “Lean Wit Me.” In October 2018, Juice joined Tim Westwood TV, where he freestyled close to an hour over different Eminem beats.
“Godzilla” also serves as Juice WRLD’s first posthumous release since his passing on December 8, 2019—six days after his 21st birthday. Juice reportedly recorded the chorus for the track before his untimely death, although he was unable to complete his actual verse for the song in time. Later in January 2020, a picture surfaced on XXL that depicted Juice WRLD and his friends after he recorded the chorus.
“Lace It” is a collaboration with Eminem and Benny Blanco and is the first official single for Juice’s upcoming album The Party Never Ends. Juice WRLD and Eminem both reflect on substance abuse on the track.
The song’s existence was originally revealed on December 7, 2023, when the cover art to the single leaked online. Juice WRLD’s manager, Lil Bibby, responded to the cover art leak tweeting “Not real”.
On December 15, 2023, it was stated by a member of Juice WRLD’s team that a single was meant to have dropped that night but did not due to issues with benny blanco. Later that day, Lil Bibby posted the official cover art stating the song would be releasing tomorrow and proving the song’s existence despite originally calling it fake.
The song is now officially out! You can bump it below!
