Song by Eminem Produced by Album: Music To Be Murdered By Released: 17 January 2020
“Darkness” is the sole single from Eminem’s surprise album, Music To Be Murdered By. It was released with its music video alongside the album.
On the track, Em takes the perspective of Stephen Paddock to chillingly depict the events of a 2017 shooting that took place at a live performance Las Vegas. The initial two verses also serve as a metaphor for the anxiety and depression that Eminem suffers from.
The song ends with a compilation of news clips from various shootings that have occurred in the United States in recent years.
