Single Review: Eminem feat. Beyoncé – Walk On Water

Eminem ready for big comeback with Beyoncé feature
Guess who’s back! After teasing new material for a while, Eminem’s brand new single just dropped. And oh, he only brought Beyoncé with him to sing the chorus! Anticipation was high for his comeback after he addressed the current president of the United States in a rap that went viral. He also recently appeared on P!nk’s latest single ‘Revenge’. His very own new track ‘Walk On Water’ might not be exactly what people would expect from him, but it is a hit waiting to happen for sure!

While Eminem, and hiphop in general for that matter, is often known for the beats, Eminem chooses a completely different approach on ‘Walk On Water’. The base of the whole track is just piano and a few strings here and there, but that is about it. A brave and fresh approach that definitely works! He raps about the expectations that his success has set and him struggling to live up to it in a raw and honest manner. I don’t think he has to worry too much about that after releasing this track! Beyoncé provides a soulful chorus with the lyrics: “I walk on water, but I ain’t no Jesus. I walk on water, but only when it freezes.” The whole narrative seems to be about how they are only human just like us, only for Eminem to flip it around in the last few seconds. He still is the Real Slim Shady of course!
