Earlier this summer, we heard a clip from Eminem's new single "Guts Over Fear" in the trailer for The Equalizer. Now, you can listen to the full song above.
Eminem's latest song features lyrics that command your attention, with the artist addressing the ups and downs of his whole career. For a rapper who has released fourteen albums and will soon be releasing his fifteenth, Shady XV, that is quite a lot of ground to cover. Eminem does it with ease, rapping about his initial success to his anxieties concerning his next album, "So to the break of dawn here I go recycling the same old song / But I’d rather make 'Not Afraid 2’ than making another mothafuckin’ 'We Made You' uh." The track is an authentic look at Eminem's career and a song for all the kids who are struggling like he once did.
Sia joins Eminem on the track with a killer hook. The two artists collaborated before on "Beautiful Pain," an extra song for Eminem's deluxe edition of The Marshall Mathers LP2. Sia's raspy vocals, raw and full of emotion bring it to a whole other level.
Eminem has hinted on his twitter with the hashtag #SHADYXV that this song is just a preview of his next album. The record will be released on Black Friday, November 28th, and will feature tracks from other artists including Slaughterhouse, Bad Meets Evil, D-12, and Yelawolf as well as guest collaborations.
