Rap veteran Eminem and R&B/pop legend Mariah Carey are linked together again, but not in that way. Eminem recently reached a major milestone on Spotify and passed Mariah on a star-studded list of artists.

Among artists who debuted prior to 2000, Eminem and Mariah Carey – which both briefly dated each other years ago – top the list for having the most monthly listeners on Spotify. Eminem is reportedly at 39 million per month, passing Mariah Carey’s 37 million per month.

History Between Eminem + Mariah Carey
The story of Slim Shady and Mimi dates back to 2001, when he claims they dated for a few months. As Mariah continued to deny it, Eminem began name-dropping her in several songs over the years. She clapped back on her songs “Clown” and “Obsessed,” and eventually her (now ex) husband Nick Cannon got involved with some diss tracks aimed at Eminem.

Em Trolls Everyone + Drops New Video
Chart-topping rapper Eminem doesn’t really want or need smoke with UFC president Dana White. Instead, Slim recently used some viral buzz about him dissing the MMA executive and turned it into the perfect rollout for his new “Higher” music video.
A clip from the video appeared during the ESPN pre-show on Friday for Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier’s Saturday night match in Abu Dhabi. The segment featured a mock interview between ESPN anchor Michael Eaves and UFC boss Dana White discussing the rapper’s chances in a fictional fight. Eminem entered the interview towards the end and told White that “The best part about your opinion is that it doesn’t matter.”The interview went viral, with some people thinking that the clip was real instead of a stunt for his upcoming music video.
