Eminem drops new song: ‘Walk on Water,’ featuring Beyonce (Listen)
The unexpectedly mellow song — which features Eminem accompanied by Beyonce, a simple piano track, synthesizer, a haunting string section and muted percussion — is surprisingly rough-hewn, with the sound of the rapper scribbling and swearing to himself in the backgrown in between verses.
The song’s title was written on a prescription note with a logo for “Revival,” which is presumably the name of his forthcoming album, which has no official release date but is expected to drop at any time between now and the end of the year. The album’s title, which was at the center of an elaborate fake advertising campaign teased by Eminem’s manager Paul Rosenberg earlier in the month, could complete Eminem’s sequence of albums referencing his admitted struggles with prescription drugs, 2009’s “Relapse” and 2010’s “Recovery.” His most recent album was 2013’s “The Marshall Mathers LP 2.”
The rapper, who is set to appear as musical guest on the Nov. 18 episode of “Saturday Night Live” — which is hosted by Chance the Rapper — also release a devastating freestyle takedown of President Trump .
