Eminem is his own worst critic.
Eminem teased the music video for “Walking On Water” featuring Beyonce.
Revival is on track to open up with around 285,000 in sales in its opening week. That will definitely secure Em the top spot on the Billboard 200, but it’s his lowest-selling debut week since 1999. His lead single, “Walk On Water,” was an odd choice to kick the era off with. He ended up labeling it as some kind of buzz track because of how poorly it performed compared to some of his other hits, but he’s releasing a visual for it nonetheless. The rapper shared a clip of it on social media today.
In the preview, a bunch of Eminem clones are sitting at a typewriter and pounding out nonsense. It’s likely a nod to the lyrics, “The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless / And it always feels like I’m hitting the mark / ’til I go sit in the car, listen, and pick it apart / Like, “this shit is garbage.”
It’s not clear when the clip drops, or if Beyonce is in it, but I imagine it will premiere on Friday, Dec. 22, and she’s probably not.
