The track is surging in popularity following the film’s release.

The final song on Eminem’s new album Kamikaze is “Venom,” which also serves as the title track for the soundtrack to the superhero film that debuted at No. 1 in the US earlier this month. The song has seen a surge in popularity since Venom’s release, and on Monday night, Em performed it in dramatic fashion from the top of New York City’s Empire State building.

Em weaves the title and plot of the film into his track:

Venom, (I got that) adrenaline momentum
And I’m not knowin' when I’m
Ever gonna slow up and I’m
Ready to snap any moment I’m
Thinkin' it’s time to go get ‘em
They ain’t gonna know what hit 'em
(W-W-When they get bit with the—)
Venom

The third verse features Em spitting about the alien parasite that plays a central role in the film:

So escapin' me is impossible
I latch onto you like a—parasite
And I probably ruined your parents' life
And your childhood too
‘Cause if I’m the music that y'all grew up on
I’m responsible for you retarded fools
I’m the super villain Dad and Mom was losin’ their marbles to

Emine’s “Venom” re-entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 43 this week, marking a new peak for the track. It also surged to No. 1 on Genius' Top Songs chart. With Venom racking up over $142 million at the domestic box office alone so far, it seems likely that Em’s track will continue to gain popularity in the coming weeks.
