image_pdfimage_print

Eminem ritorna sulla scena musicale con un nuovo album ed un nuovo singolo, in collaborazione con una stella della musica internazionale.

Eminem è pronto a rilasciare il suo nono studio album dal titolo Revival, in uscita il prossimo 17 Novembre.

Revival arriva a distanza di quattro anni da The Marhall Mathers LP 2, tra i cui singoli ricordiamo The Monster in collaborazione con Rihanna.

Walk On Water è il titolo del primo singolo di questo progetto, rilasciato ieri 10 Novembre e annunciato da un’immagine sul profilo Instagram del rapper statunitense, dove il titolo del brano appare scritto su una falsa ricetta medica insieme al nome del nuovo album.

E dopo la collaborazione con l’ultimo singolo di Pink, Revenge, Eminem si concede un nuovo featuring per dare inizio a questa nuova era musicale.

Nel ritornello della traccia ritroviamo infatti la voce di Beyoncè, che con quattro parole in croce che intona regala al brano delicatezza ed intensità vocale, riportando a galla il ricordo di Stan, singolo del 2000 cantato insieme a Dido e citato alla fine di Walk On Water.

Tra i produttori dell’album, oltre lo stesso Eminem, figurano Rick Rubin e Skylar Grey, con Dr. Dre nelle vesti di produttore esecutivo, dopo varie collaborazioni passate per alcuni brani di Relapse ed Encore.

Il singolo verrà presentato durante la serata degli MTV European Music Awards 2017, che si terranno questa domenica presso la SSE Arena di Wembley, Londra.

Eminem – Walk On Water (ft. Beyoncé)

I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes (fuck)
 
Why are expectations so high?
Is it the bar I set?
My arms, I stretch, but I can’t reach
A far cry from it, or it’s in my grasp, but as
Soon as I grab, squeeze
I lose my grip like the flying trapeze
Into the dark, I plummet
Now the sky’s blackening, I know the mark’s high
Butterflies rip apart my stomach
Knowing that no matter what bars I come with
You’re gonna hark, gripe, and that’s a hard Vicodin to swallow
So I scrap these, as pressure increases, like khakis
I feel the ice cracking, because
 
I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes
 
It’s the curse of the standard
That the first of the Mathers disc set
Always in search of the verse that I haven’t spit yet
Will this step just be another misstep
To tarnish whatever the legacy, love or respect I’ve garnered?
The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless
And it always feels like I’m hitting the mark
’Til I go sit in the car, listen, and pick it apart
Like, “this shit is garbage”
God’s given me all this
Still I feel no different regardless
Kids look to me like as a god, this is retarded
If only they knew, it’s a facade and it’s exhaustive
And I try to not listen to nonsense
But if you bitches are trying to strip me of my confidence
Mission accomplished
I’m not God-sent
Nas, Rakim, Pac, B.I.G., James Todd Smith, and I’m not Prince, so
 
I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes
 
’Cause I’m only human, just like you
Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don’t think you should believe in me the way that you do
‘Cause I’m terrified to let you down, oh
 
It’s true, I’m a Rubik’s, a beautiful mess
At times juvenile, yes, I goof and I jest
A flawed human, I guess
But I’m doing my best to not ruin your ex-
pectations and meet ’em, but first, the “Speedom” verse
Now, Big Sean, he’s going too fast
Is he gonna shout or curse out his mom?
There was a time I had the world by the balls, eating out my palm
Every album, song I was spazzin’ the fuck out on
And now I’m getting clowned and frowned on
But the only one who’s looking down on me that matters now’s Deshaun
Am I lucky to be around this long?
Begs the question, though
Especially after the methadone
As yesterday fades and the Dresden home is burnt to the ground
And all that’s left of my house is lawn
The crowds are gone
And it’s time to wash out the blonde
Sales decline, the curtains drawn
They’re closing the set, I’m still poking my head out from behind
And everyone who has doubt, remind
Now take your best rhyme, outdo it, now do it a thousand times
Now let ’em tell ya the world no longer cares or gives a fuck about your rhymes
And as I grow outta sight, outta mind, I might go outta mine
‘Cause how do I, ever let this mic go without a fight
When I made a fuckin’ tightrope outta twine?
But when I do fall from these heights, though, I’ll be fine
I won’t pout or cry or spiral down or whine
But I’ll decide if it’s my final bow this time around ’cause
 
I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes
 
‘Cause I’m only human, just like you
Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don’t think you should believe in me the way that you do
‘Cause I’m terrified to let you down, oh
 
If I walked on water, I would drown
‘Cause I’m just a man, but as long as I got a mic I’m godlike
So me and you are not alike
Bitch, I wrote “Stan”
