The song ‘Unaccommodating’ on the record brimmed a massive controversy in the world of music for its 'insensitive' lyrics that are, “but I'm contemplating yelling 'Bombs away' on the game / Like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting". The number caused strong dissension among the fans online and Twitter had #EminemIsCancelled hashtag trending, but despite that, the album was near leading the race at the midweek stage.
Eminem's music composition eventually hit the victory as the best-selling that also topped the singles charts with the track Godzilla that featured the rapper Juice WRLD, real names Jarad A. Higgins, who died at the age of 21 in December 2019 having a seizure.
