Eminem has blessed us with another song from the Southpaw soundtrack, and it is phenomenal (total pun on the soundtrack's first release, "Phenomenal"). But this time he teams up with Gwen Stefani. With a duo like that, fans could only assume great things, and they both delivered.

Titled "Kings Never Die," the song has the intense, motivational beat that Jake Gyllenhaal could probably use while staging his comeback in the upcoming movie. As if that weren't enough, the lyrics also will get your blood pumping and will pretty much make you ready for anything, whether it's a boxing match or running five marathons.

"Cause I been lost tryna think of what I did to get here but I'm not a quitter / Gotta get up, give it all I got or give up / Spit on, s--t on, stepped on, but kept going / I'm tryna be headstrong but it feels like I slept on my neck wrong / Cause you're moving onto the next, but is the respect gone? / Cause someone told me that / Kings never die," he raps in the nearly five-minute long song.

The song's message is clear: don't call it a comeback. Eminem might have disappeared for a little while, but he has returned and he wants you to know that he doesn't care what the haters say.

"Here I go again, center stage and I feel like I'm in a cage / Some want a champion to fall / I still wonder why I laugh at 'em, cause why care when I'm awesome? / F--k what these cynics say," he continues.

Gyllenhaal's character, who works his way back to the top after his wife (Rachel McAdams) is killed and he loses his daughter to child services, will definitely be able to use this song to help him on his physical and emotional journey.
