The song speaks about all the reasons why people remember their name. All three artists, Ed Sheeran, 50 Cent and Eminem, came from nothing into the music industry and have made themselves to platinum-selling multi-millionaire performers. In his verse, Eminem also mentions that he is not ready to retire from rap yet.
In the first verse of the song, Ed Sheeran says how he has come from zero to become one of the best-selling artists in the world. His ongoing ‘Divide’ world tour became the highest-grossing world tour ever, passing U2. However, one thing he wanted more than anything else in life is a collaboration with Eminem and 50 Cent. Life goals checked!
The album releases on July 12, 2019.
