Controversial Ariana Grande lyric features on new surprise album from Eminem

But it wouldn’t be an Eminem album without some controversial lyrics, would it?

While we were sleeping overnight, rap superstar Eminem dropped a surprise album titled Music to be Murdered by.

The 47-year-old may not have the same popularity he once did, but he is still undeniably one of the biggest names in music.

And as fans make their way through the 20-track album, they will notice that the Detroit rapper is still not shying away from controversy.

One line that is getting particular attention on social media seems to reference the Manchester terror attacks that took place at an Ariana Grande concert in 2017. 23 people people were killed during the incident.

On the track ‘Unaccomodating’, Eminem raps: “But I’m contemplating yelling ‘Bombs away’ on the game/Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting.”

Grande joins a lengthy list of celebrities to have been disrespected by Eminem throughout his career.

The album features some major names in the music business, including Ed Sheeran, Royce da 5’9″, and Anderson .Paak.

A powerful video was also released for the new song ‘Darkness’, which is about gun violence in America, more specifically the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. Take a look here:
