Grammy-winning rapper Eminem is really putting fans in a tough position. The hip-hop veteran has exclusively premiered his “Walk On Water” single through streaming giant Apple Music.
According to reports, the visual does not feature Em’s collaborator Beyoncé.
The 5-minute video finds Em performing in a dark room with a mic stand, before taking a seat in a classroom set up, along with a ton of other Eminem clones, typing on an old school typewriter. The scene looks to be an re-enactment of French mathematician Émile Borel’s famous “infinite monkey theorem.” Unfortunately, Beyonce doesn’t make an appearance in the video, but after all she wasn’t even supposed to be featured on this song anyways.

The rap star’s Revival album has already debuted atop the music charts in the United Kingdom.
With little promotion and even less warning that a new collection was coming as quickly as it did, Eminem has debuted his new album Revival at No. 1 in the U.K., which is an accomplishment he has managed many times now. According to the Official Charts Company, the newly-released record kicks off with an impressive 132,000 equivalent copies, which is an especially large sum for the country. (Forbes)
Along with the big sales news, Em is speculated to perform at next year’s Coachella music festival in California.
Detroit rap icon Eminem, pop music queen Beyoncé, and R&B crooner The Weeknd are set to headline the 2018 edition of Coachella, industry sources tell Consequence of Sound. America’s preeminent music festival returns for its 19th edition on April 13th-15th and April 20th-22nd at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. An official lineup announcement is expected in early January coinciding with the on sale of tickets. (Consequence of Sound)
This week, Em received some unexpected shade courtesy of President Donald Trump‘s son.
It’s a bit odd that he’s admitting to having prepared heavily to take on a 70 year old politician. Probably not the best look. So much for freestyle. #WillTheRealLoserPleaseStandUp https://t.co/suToF4D193
