After an early release last week, Gwen’s latest collaboration with rapper Eminem, “Kings Never Die”, debuted at #80 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at #8 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs making it the highest charting new entry. According to Billboard, “Kings Never Die” was downloaded 35,000 times and was streamed 1.2 million times “with 49 percent stemming from Spotify plays” (which also helped it come in at #35 on the Digital Songs chart). It’s excellent to see the track chart so high considering it has yet to be promoted properly.
“Kings Never Die” is said to be the upcoming and second single from the Southpaw film soundtrack and an official lyrics video is expected soon, too.
