Eminem has been busy, he recently came out with a surprise single titled, “Walk on Water” featuring the Queen Bey herself, Beyonce. This is the first time these two mega artists have ever collaborated on a song.
In the song Eminem talks about his life and career throughout the track showing his emotion and how he felt throughout his journey in the music industry.
“Kids looks to me as a god, this is retarded /If only they knew, it’s a façade and it`s exhaustive/ And I try not to listen to nonsense/ But if you bitches are trying to strip me of my confidence/ Mission accomplished.”
He recently performed the track live for the first time at the 2017 MTV EMAs in London last Sunday. He was nominated for numerous awards which came to a suprise to some hip-hop heads since he hasn’t released an album since 2013’s “The Marshall Mathers LP.” Somehow, he won Best Hip Hop Award which confused a lot of people and even himself since he’s been gone for a while.
During the BET Awards Cypher last month Eminem came out spitting a controversial message regarding Donald Trump, NFL protests, Hurricane Maria and the Las Vegas mass shooting which he received praise for from fans and various artists and celebrities.
This Eminem is different from the Slim Shady we all know but it looks like he’s trying to use his platform to spread a message. Check out the single “Walk on Water” below!
