Eminem & Beyoncé “Walk On Water”: Listen Now

By | Posted November 10, 2017

Eminem has released "Walk On Water," the first single off his forthcoming ninth studio album, RƎVIVAL. And it features none other than Beyoncé.

So, is "Walk On Water" any good? The truth is, it doesn't really matter. Whether the single and subsequent album release are cheered or jeered by the hip-hop community at large, Eminem doesn't need to be the greatest to keep winning. 

Eschewing his usual route of animated, lighthearted lead singles, "Walk On Water" is a very sentimental ballad. Em's poignant, reflective lyrics and Beyoncé's soulful chorus point to RƎVIVAL being a more mature work from the legendary MC.

"Walk On Water," produced by Rick Rubin, is Em's first official release since "Campaign Speech," a seven-minute freestyle that hit the web in October 2016.

In addition to RƎVIVAL, which is slated for release on Friday, November 17, Eminem's fingerprints will also be found on forthcoming releases from three of his newest Shady Records signees: Westside Gunn & Conway and Boogie
