Considered by both fans and critics as the strongest song on Relapse. This song had begun to be written while sitting in rehab.

Via MTV:

There’s only one song on the record that I produced. It’s a track called ’Beautiful,’” [Eminem] said in [Vibe’s June 2009] issue. “And one of the only reasons that I put that track on there is that I feel like it’s the best song out of that batch that I did when I wasn’t sober. At the time I felt like, ’This is it for me.’ I wrote the first verse and a half in rehab, and when I came out, I finished it. It was the only song that marks that period without bringing me back to that place. Every other track not only didn’t fit with the album, but when I listened to it, it would bring up bad memories.

At its core, this is a song about depression, but by the end of the track, Eminem expresses optimism and hope for the future.
