We’ve been anticipating Eminem’s collab with pop-rock’s feistiest female Pink for some time—and now, here it is! Em said he thought Pink would “smash this record”—so did the singer do Em proud? And can Em record a song anymore without it sounding like he’s yelling at us? Yes, and no. Listen below!
Eminem feat. Pink – “Won’t Back Down”
The DJ Khalil-produced track, off Mathers’ upcoming Recovery, is a loud, angry, rockin’ tune, full of energy in every single beat. In between Em spitting his verses with full fury, and Pink delivering soulful (but still hard) vocals during the chorus, we’re almost exhausted by the end of the song. So far, we feel as though Recovery promises to be a progression from the borderline horror-core stuff Em recorded for Relapse.
“I sat Bruce Wayne down, gave him a valium, told him to sit his ass down, I’m ready for combat,” raps Em. Hey, even when the man sounds angry, he still has his sense of humor intact.
Recovery drops June 22. Are you guys feeling this track? Or do you think Pink’s presence was wasted?
