Eminem Drops ‘Walk on Water’ Featuring Beyonce
Eminem dropped a new song, featuring Beyonce called “Walk on Water” today.
His lyrics include:
“Why are expectations so high?” he begins. “Is it the bar I set, my arms outstretched, but I can’t reach? … I lose my grip like the flying trapeze, Into the dark I plummet …
“Always in search of the verse I haven’t spit yet, will this step just be another misstep?/
To tarnish whatever the legacy or love or respect I’ve garnered/
The ryhme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless/
And it always feels like I’m hitting the mark
Till I go sit in the car, listen and pick it apart
Like ‘This sh– is garbage”
Beyonce’s hook includes the lines:
“I walk on water, but I ain’t no Jesus/ I walk on water but only when it freezes,” and later cascades into the verses:
“‘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/
Because I’m terrified to let you down.”
As a fifteen-time MTV EMA winner Eminem will also make a highly anticipated return to the EMA stage for the first global performance of his new single “Walk on Water” LIVE at the 2017 MTV EMAs. This marks Eminem’s fourth EMA performance as he returns to the show in London, following his surprise performances of “Berzerk” and “Rap God” that dominated the night at the 2013 MTV EMAs in Amsterdam where he was honored with the night’s esteemed Global Icon Award and also took home the title for “Best Hip Hop” artist. Eminem is nominated for two categories at the 2017 MTV EMAs, “Best Hip Hop” and “Best Live.” He has sold more than 155 million albums worldwide. “With 35 EMA nominations and 15 wins under his belt, Eminem is no stranger to the EMAs and we’re thrilled to announce his highly anticipated debut will take place at our biggest night in music,” said Bruce Gillmer, Head of Music and Music Talent, Global Entertainment Group, Viacom and executive producer of the 2017 MTV EMAs.
Eminem will appear on “Saturday Night Live” Nov. 18 as the musical guest which will be hosted by Chance the Rapper. Take a listen below and let us know what you think.
