LISTEN: Eminem Addresses Critics & Talks Career Struggles in Beyonce Assisted ‘Walk on Water’
The collaboration you never knew that you always wanted is here! Eminem has made his official musical return with his new song called Walk on Water and to help kick things off, he brought along a special guest: BEYONCE!
Written by Eminem and Beyonce alongside Skylar Grey and produced by Skylar and Rick Rubin, Walk on Water serves as the official lead single from Eminem’s upcoming ninth studio album Revival (styled as RƎVIVAL), which is allegedly scheduled to be released on November 17 through Aftermath Entertainment, Shady Records and Interscope Records:
Walk on Water is about Eminem’s struggle with his career in the latter half. Since his comeback in 2009, his critics have showed disinterest in presence and he wants to prove them wrong. The song uses the metaphor of walking on water to his career, as doing the impossible: to be as successful as he was during the peak of his career.
Production for the album took place during 2016 to 2017, at several recording studios and was handled by various record producers, including Eminem himself and Dr. Dre.
