Could it be the first single from Em’s next album?
There have recently been a lot of rumors flying about Eminem’s long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2. A report earlier this month suggested that the rapper’s 9th studio album would arrive as early as this fall, while an interview with The Defiant Ones director Allen Hughes revealed that Dr. Dre was working on music for an upcoming Eminem project.
Given these clues, it’s quite possible that this reported Eminem and Pink song could be the first single from Marshall’s next album. Then again, there’s still the possibility that Eminem is featured on Pink’s next single rather than the other way around.
Eminem’s last solo release was the 8-minute standalone track “Campaign Speech” in 2016. Earlier this year, he appeared on Big Sean‘s “No Favors” from the fellow Detroit rapper’s fourth studio album I Decided. Last we heard, Eminem was working with 2 Chainz on some new material. Em recently released some Camp Shady merch on his online shop, which may or may not be an indication of the album’s direction.
Eminem and Pink first collaborated on “Won’t Back Down” on 2010’s Recovery. They later reunited on Pink’s “Here Comes The Weekend” from The Truth About Lying. Pink’s upcoming seventh studio album Beautiful Trauma is due out October 13th.
