Eminem’s Newly Released Single Reworked to Address Gun Violence

Posted on by

In recent years, rapper Eminem has become increasingly political in his music to address current events from his fascinating point of view. Now he has taken an interesting step in this vein. He has released a new studio version of an existing track from his 2017 album “Revival” that now includes a verse addressing the issue of guns in schools.

At the recent iHeartRadio Awards, the artist formerly known as Marshall Mathers performed “Nowhere Fast” live, debuting the timely new verse. Before he began, he was introduced by a student from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida who survived the February shooting there.

Following that performance, a new studio version of “Nowhere Fast” was released that includes the recently added verse.

The original version of the song was already political, addressing a number of relevant issues. It primarily focused on fears of war, particularly with North Korea.

By adding the verse that raises questions and concerns about gun violence in schools, “Nowhere Fast” takes on an additional dimension, and it demonstrates an interesting experiment that other musicians might emulate. By adjusting an already-released track to make it sync up with current events, Eminem has perhaps increased chances that people will download the track or buy the album.

“Nowhere Fast” features Bay Area singer Kehlani, who, like Eminem, also released an album last year. “SweetSexySavage” was her debut release, and was met with favorable reviews from critics.

Given Eminem’s legendary career, “Revival” and each of its singles have not quite gained as much steam as one might expect. Some have noted that many of the album’s tracks feature odd collaborations that do not always work, and his lyrics often fixate on his own fame and career trajectory.

Regardless, the Detroit rapper continues to grab headlines and keep his hardcore fans happy.

Eminem to Release New Album

Posted on by

Eminem was the biggest selling musical artist in the United States from 2000-2009. He is also the biggest selling rap artist in history. His millions of fans around the world have been wondering when he will release a new album. He had not done so since 2013. However, their wait will soon be over. Eminem’s new album called ‘Revival’ is going to come out December 15th. He has been performing some songs from the album on various TV shows over the past couple of months. He recently made an appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live’ as the musical guest.

Eminem has kept a relatively low profile since the release of his most recent album four years ago. He lives like a recluse. This is surprising for someone who is as famous as he is. ‘Walk On Water’ is the title to the first single from his new album. The song talks about how he can never meet the very lofty expectations that his fans have for him. This song is very interesting because it reveals the massive insecurities that Eminem has. This is very surprising when you consider the fact that he is one of the most successful musicians of all-time.

Eminem has not revealed any tour plans to support his new album in 2018. There were rumors that he might be doing some shows with his mentor and former collaborator Dr. Dre. However, that is just speculation at this point. Eminem made headlines several months ago when he released a freestyle rap about his hatred for President Donald Trump. He also received huge cheers from the crowd when he made an appearance at a Detroit Pistons game soon after the anti-Trump rap was released. Eminem has said that he took so long to released a new album because he was lacking inspiration.

Eminem’s long-anticipated album, “Revival”, is set to be released soon, and it features some big artists.

The Detroit-based rapper hasn’t released an album since 2013’s “The Marshall Mathers LP 2”, for which he earned two Grammy Awards. He started promoting the new album back in October, and recently released the track list on social media.

The album features 19 tracks, including his collaboration with Beyonce, “Walk on Water”. Alicia Keys appears on the 9th track, “Like Home”. English-born singer, Ed Sheeran, lends his talent to a track titled, “River.”

Other artists who appear on the album include Phresher, X Ambassadors, Skylar Grey, Kehlani, and Pink. Eminem collaborated with Pink on the song, “Revenge”, which appeared on her album “Beautiful Trauma” that was released earlier this year.

Rolling Stone reports that additional tracks on the album are titled, “Believe”, “Untouchable”, “Remind Me”, “Framed”, “Heat”, “Offended”, “In Your Head”, “Castle”, and “Arose”.

It’s also been revealed that the rapper will kick off a tour in 2018 to support his new album. He will play in select cities, making this his first American tour since 2014.

He last appeared on The Monster Tour with Rihanna four years ago. Those six shows alone grossed over $36 million.

Eminem has sold more than 172-million albums since his debut with 1996’s “Infinite”. He was the best-selling artist in the United States in the 2000s, and has won 15 Grammy Awards over the course of his career.

With the buzz around social media intensifying, his next album is set to be one of his best yet. “Revival” is currently available for pre-order and is set to be released on December 15th.
