Today, exactly 2 years ago (April 14, 2015), YelaWolf dropped his fifth single “Best Friend,” featuring Eminem, off Love Story, under Shady Records and Interscope Records.
While Yela calmly approaches the instrumental with a more spiritual tone, Eminem goes into full aggressive mode spitting more than 16 bars as he usually does. This is also the only song on the album with a feature, and marks Em’s first musical release in 2015.
The song peaked at #3 on US Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles and #36 on US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. It also reached #23 in Belgium and #51 in Canada. The music video of the song (which was released on April 24, 2015) is on its way to receive first VEVO Certification Award for YelaWolf with more than 75 million views.
YelaWolf dedicated a message to Eminem in the Love Story‘s booklet: “Marshall: Thanx brother… For takin a chance on me and my vision, for the trust, guidance and opportunity. It’s an honor to be a part of SHADY and its legacy and an honor to be a friend. l’m still a huge fan bud. Always will be.”
