    I get why a lot of Stans dont like this much but from a pure song stand point I think its the best on the album and Ems best relationship song in years

    Just critiqued this song in the main thread because Em’s verse doesn’t stand out as “authentic” compared to his other fictional relationship verses, however the song itself is great & one of my favourites of the album from the start & still is.

    I think the only reason why I f--- with this is because of Dre and Sly. Other than that, there was no reason for another relationship-track on that album.

    Plus, it showed us yet again why Stans are cringy: They tried to find out who "Michelle" is and now some of them are spreading the rumor that it's his make-up artist as if it's the truth. Some even said that they were "married" :emoji_expressionless:

    Em confirmed its a Dre song intended for Dre's album that he traded.

    So that explains why its sonically perfect. Actually think its eminems weakest verse on the album but Dre, Sly, production >>>>>>>>

    The Mandalorian This is the way

    Strongly disagree with it being Em's weakest verse on the album though. I think it is one of his finest. No overkill with the rhyme schemes or the wordplay on this joint from him. Delivery could have been a tad bit passionate though lol

    Yeah I said weakest... boring would be a better word for it. Lacks passion. Not a bad verse but yeah after Dre's gr8 verse it kinda feels empty I dunno

    Might be good, but it's probably the worst eminem/dre collab. Hook is pretty meh as well

    Sounds like another fictional relationship ballad when Em comes on, could’ve been “Need Me” for all I knew, doesn’t ruin the song but didn’t match it’s potential for sure.

    My biggest complaint about Em albums now is the fact they'll have 4 or 5 relationships songs the ones on side b were much better but still. If he's going to do them I wish they'd be on the same level as space bound though.
