Eminem made a milestone: The iconic song "Lose Yourself" from the 2002 film "8 Mile" broke the 1 billion streams barrier on the Spotify platform.

The popular rapper celebrated the success of the song, which was released on October 28, 2002, by posting a video that brings together all his achievements.

Among other accolades, "Lose Yourself" was Eminem's first song to top the US Billboard Hot 100 and also awarded "Slim Shady" in 2003 the first and only Oscar to win it to date.

"Lose Yourself" also won the Best Grammy Award for Best Rap Song and Best Male Rap Solo Performance at the 2004 Grammy Awards.

"You can do whatever you want, man," Eminem wrote in his post, quoting the last verse of the song.

Eminem wrote "Lose Yourself" for the 2002 film "8 Mile", in which he also made his film debut as an actor.

It was the lead single of the soundtrack for "8 Mile", which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard that year.

A video for "Lose Yourself" created by a rapper fan with scenes from "8 Mile" has long since surpassed 1 billion views on YouTube.
