Eminem has released the official tracklisting for his forthcoming new album, Revival, which is slated for wide release on Friday, December 15, and I couldn't be less excited for this album.
Joining Eminem on the 19-track project are Beyoncé, who is featured on lead single "Walk on Water," Ed Sheeran, Alicia Keys, Kehlani, X Ambassadors, Pink, Skylar Grey and Phresher. Yes, that Phresher.
While it's not fair to judge an album by its tracklisting, it's unfathomable that not a single one of Eminem's own artists, from veteran partner-in-rhyme Royce da 5'9" to new signees Boogie, Westside Gunn and Conway, will be a part of the final project.
How EKKSTACY Beat Writer’s Block to Make His Best Album
Pop anti-hero EKKSTACY finds his aggressive voice on his new album, 'misery.' He breaks down his journey through writer's block for Audiomack World.
Eminem is indeed trapped in an artistic no man's land, and with a bloated tracklisting full of pop features, it's unlikely he'll find salvation anytime soon.
