What is the Music To Be Murdered By?
Music to Be Murdered By (stylized as MUSIC TO BE MURDERƎD BY) is the eleventh studio album by American rapper Eminem, released on January 17, 2020, by Aftermath Entertainment, Interscope Records and Shady Records with no prior announcement, similarly to his previous album Kamikaze (2018). The album was produced by Eminem and Dr. Dre, amongst other producers, and features collaborations with Black Thought, Q-Tip, Juice Wrld, Ed Sheeran, Young M.A, Skylar Grey, Don Toliver, Anderson .Paak, Royce da 5'9", Kxng Crooked and Joell Ortiz among others. The album is dedicated to the deceased Juice Wrld and Eminem's also deceased former bodyguard CeeAaqil Allah Barnes. The album's title, cover art and concept are inspired by the Jeff Alexander album Alfred Hitchcock Presents Music to Be Murdered By (1958). Alongside the album's surprise release, Eminem also released the music video for "Darkness", which revolves around the 2017 Las Vegas shooting from the point of view of the perpetrator Stephen Paddock alternating with Eminem's own. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 279,000 album-equivalent units in its first week. Subsequently, Eminem became the first artist to have ten consecutive albums debut at number one in the US and one of six artists to have released at least ten US number-one albums. Music critics praised Eminem's lyrical abilities and the improved production after Kamikaze, while criticism directed towards the album's formulaic song structure, lack of innovation and shock value.Music to Be Murdered By is among Eminem's most controversial albums. The Mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham, responded to Eminem making light of the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing, saying, “This is unnecessarily hurtful and deeply disrespectful to the families and all those affected.” The criticism of the album's subject matter led to Eminem responding in an open letter, saying that Music to Be Murdered By is “not for the squeamish” and is “designed to shock the conscience.”..
