Eminem released a taste of his upcoming album ‘Revival’ with the new song ‘Walk On Water’ on Friday.
The song features the lines “I walk on water But I ain’t no Jesus / I walk on water but only when it freezes.” Later Eminem raps ‘I’m not God-sent, Nas, Rakim, Pac, B.I.G., James Todd Smith and I’m no Prince, so”
He also raps about his self-doubt:
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 from out behind
But then he comes good at the end with:
‘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”
Eminem set the promo for the album up with a fake medical page askaboutrevival.com.
The page talks of the fictitious disease Atrox Rithimus and Revival being ht ecure. “REVIVAL is proven to effectively treat people with Atrox Rithimus. If you’ve tried other treatments without getting the AR symptom relief you need, REVIVAL could be music to your ears”.
‘Revival’ is the first Eminem album in four years. It will be released next week on November 17.
The last Eminem album was ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’ in 2013. It sold 9 million copies worldwide.
