Eminem Is this the first album without a traditional lead song?

    Every album has a lead song that people know about. A commercial type song. It used to be all silly dilly songs. But he has done Not Afraid on WOW.

    I miss the lead songs like My Name is and The Real Slim Shady. I wish that Em just did one song like TRSL on this album.

    It wasn't actually. Fall kinda sounds like a modern day Eminem single but it doesn't seem like traditional because he gave the album the music video of fall outta nowhere without any notice beforehand. As for the songs like my name is, they were great back then but today those type of s--- would flop anyway if he is not do the whole rapping on trap-ish beat which makes it not like my name is type songs so I don't know. I'm fine, I can listen to old Eminem whenever I want it's not like he didn't have too many records back then. I enjoy any type of singles as long as it sounds good.

    Wouldn't 3Am be the first.

    I know how daft that sounds but it wasn't the traditional type of lead single.

    I'm pretty sure Fall is meant to be the lead song, since it got music video first and such.

    I love Em songs where he's just fooling around. Like on the Kamikaze song

    But he needed a more commercial song for this album. I remember in 02 they played Without Me at the school dance and all the chicks went nuts.

    See Eminem Base and Spatula are wrong in thinking chicks just like his records like Mockingbird, Not Afraid, Stronger Than I Was, Spend Some Time, Hailie's Song

    Because of the catchy hooks on songs like Without Me, The Real Slim Shady, My Name is they also love these songs. Sure they don't give a d--- about the word play, humour, rhyming skill on Without Me but the catchy hook and catchy beat they love the song for

    Eminem's foundation and success and draw as an artist is his hooks
