Fans Choose Eminem’s ‘Houdini’ as This Week’s Favorite New Music in All-Genre Poll

Eminem‘s “Houdini” has topped this week’s new music poll that features artists in various genres of music.


Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (May 31) on Billboard, choosing the superstar rapper’s latest single as their favorite new music release of the past week.

Slim Shady’s new song brought in 46% of the vote on the poll, securing an edge ahead of new releases from Foster the People (“Lost in Space”), Ayra Starr (The Year I Turned 21), Normani (“Candy Paint”), Shaboozey (Where I’ve Been, Isn’t Where I’m Going), and others.

“Houdini” is the lead single off of Eminem’s 12th studio album, The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce), which is expected to arrive this summer. The upcoming set follows 2020’s Music to Be Murdered By, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

“Houdini” hit streaming services on Friday (May 31). The campy superhero-themed music video for the track features cameos from Pete Davidson, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg and more.

Em announced plans for the new album shortly after his appearance at the 2024 NFL Draft, which happened to be in his hometown of Detroit. He used a clip in the mold of an Unsolved Mysteries episode featuring a cameo from 50 Cent. However, it was actually Dr. Dre who spilled the beans on Em’s next album during a late-night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in March.

Trailing behind “Houdini” on this week’s poll is Foster the People’s new song “Lost in Space,” with 24% of the vote. The single is the alt-pop hitmakers’ first taste of their just-announced upcoming album, Paradise State of Mind.
