  • Lyrics
  • This song finds Nicki Minaj teaming up with Eminem. The only time that the pair worked together previously was on the Pink Friday song "Roman's Revenge", where Minaj rapped as her foul-mouthed alter ego Roman Zolanski.
  • Eminem earned an entry in the 2015 Guinness Book of Records for "most words in a hit single," after spitting a total of 1,560 words on the 6:03 long "Rap God." However, on "Majesty" he is even faster, rapping 123 syllables in about 12 seconds, which is about 10.3 syllables per second. On the quickest part of "Rap God," Em rhymed 157 syllables in 16.3 seconds, or 9.6 syllables per second, which is about .7 syllables per second less.

    Premiering the song on Beats 1, Minaj told listeners that Eminem's verse would "go down in history as one of the best verses in the history of rap."
  • The song features on the chorus Labrinth, an English dance/hip-hop singer and producer who is best known for his UK #1 and US Top 40 hit "Beneath Your Beautiful." It marks the first time he has worked with Nicki Minaj.
  • Labrinth and Eminem also produced the track.
