Notably, a few years back, the collaboration between Juice WRLD and Eminem on "Godzilla" emerged from Shady's "Music To Be Murdered By" album. Now, in the present, another collaboration titled "Lace It," produced by Benny Blanco has surfaced from Juice's upcoming album, "The Party Never Ends."

Following the release of this poignant track, Benny Blanco couldn't conceal his emotions and took to Instagram to share his feelings with his followers. Reflecting on the profound impact of "Lace It," he expressed, "People always say things like 'this song means a lot to me' or 'it changed my life'... when discussing a piece of music they're listening to... 'Lace It' truly gives that a new meaning to me because the day we recorded was also the last time I ever saw Juice... everyday that moment gets further away... and I'd trade this or any other song we did to have him back… I didn't think I would be crying while writing this but here we are… Jared, you are talent that will never be matched… Your laugh and spirit are infectious. I'm gonna play this song so loud. You can hear this in heaven tonight… We miss you."
He continued with a heartfelt message to Eminem: "Marshall, I don't even know where to start… I remember exactly where I was the first time I saw the video for 'My Name Is.' It stopped me in tracks… I knew in that very moment that I had to make music and that I was gonna dedicate my entire life to it… You paved the way for people to be different and not feel weird about being an outcast… Both me and Juice wouldn't be who we are without you… Thank you."
Adding to the outpouring of support, Selena Gomez, reportedly in a relationship with Benny Blanco, demonstrated her affection by leaving a heart emoji under his post, showcasing her appreciation for the collaborative efforts of Benny Blanco, Juice WRLD, and Eminem on "Lace It." This gesture serves as a testament to the emotional resonance of the track and the connections within the music industry.
