Singers from America’s leading hip hop acts have received high marks for their songwriting skills, with the likes of Eminem and Alicia Keys earning accolades for their ability to bring together the songs of their predecessors.
The top 20 best-selling songs in America’s music charts by the artist name have ranged from the country’s top hits by Kendrick Lamar to its biggest hits by Eminem and Rihanna.
In the US, Beyonce’s “Formation” has earned a score of 8.5, and “I Am the Best” has been rated as the No 1 single by Billboard Magazine.
Other recent American hits include Jay Z’s “I’m a King”, the top song of the last decade, and Justin Bieber’s “Sorry”.
In an interview with Billboard, Eminem said that he had always wanted to be able to work with other artists but it took time to develop his skills and make the transition from the US to India.
“It’s always been a challenge, I don’t think I’ve ever felt like a superstar or an artist in America,” he said.
“I think I’m a humble artist, and I know that I am a humble person.
It’s not about who’s the biggest or who’s got the biggest talent, but I just want to be a part of the music industry and I want to make the best of it.”
Emerson was also in agreement with his contemporaries on whether they had the talent or skill to succeed in America.
“There are a lot of artists who have been successful here, but the challenge is how to go from there,” he added.
“Some people say you have to work in America for a while, and that’s true, but if you’re going to be successful, you have have to do it for a long time.”
“You can’t just jump right in and just do it, you gotta work and work hard.
It takes time.”
Emma, who was born in India but raised in the US and is the eldest of six siblings, said he was excited to have a chance to work on songs with the artists he loved.
“We’re all from the same place and it’s fun to be inspired by the songs we hear,” he told Billboard.
“The songwriting is the most important part of it.
You need to be the person who can inspire someone.”
When I started writing songs, I just wanted to share my stories with people who might not understand how important it is.
It makes me feel a little bit better knowing that I’ve inspired people.
“That’s what I’ve been working on.
I’ve learned so much from listening to people who’ve been doing this for years, and it really helps me grow as an artist.”
