The title of the collaboration song recorded by X Ambassadors and Eminem is “Bad Husband,” which is 4 minutes and 47 seconds long. The lyrics are available on Genius.
Produced by Alex Da Kid, “Bad Husband” is an apology song Eminem wrote for Kim Mathers. The title refers to the “Rap God” rapper himself and this is the first time he has written an apology to his former wife.
