Eminem also shared a video for ‘Darkness’, which deals with gun violence in America. In the song, Eminem raps from the point of view of a shooter targeting concertgoers from a hotel room. The music video visualises the scene, which is a reference to the 2017 Las Vegas shooter who killed more than 50 people attending Route 91 Harvest music festival.
The video ends with a call to viewers to register to vote at vote.gov. “When will this end? When enough people care,” the video reads. “Make your voice heard and help change gun laws in America.”
