Eminem signals Biden support as campaign releases ‘Lose Yourself’ election ad.

Eminem, an artist who's long been guarded about licensing his music, has a career first: He has provided a song — his signature song — to a political candidate.

The Detroit rapper’s “Lose Yourself” is the soundtrack to a new spot from the Joe Biden presidential campaign, a 45-second get-out-the-vote push that arrives just ahead of Election Day.

Released online early Monday, the ad, titled "One Opportunity," features black-and-white footage from locales across the U.S., including Detroit and a recent Biden visit to the Michigan State Fairgrounds.

The ad is interspersed with the message “VOTE” amid the familiar urgent beat of “Lose Yourself” and Eminem’s motivational lyrics: “If you had one shot or one opportunity …”.

In providing his song to the Biden campaign, Eminem is essentially giving his official endorsement to the Democratic presidential candidate and running mate Kamala Harris.

The judge in the case declared the 2002 song to be the “jewel in the crown” of the rapper’s catalog. »
