In fact, at the end of "Walk on Water"-his new song with Beyoncé-Eminem even drops a Stan reference, highlighting the parallels between the two songs released 17 years apart". Within minutes, it was clear that she's the one people really wanted. But what we need Eminem to be now, is different than the artist he was in the past, and "Walk on Water" breaks the mold of the traditional Eminem first single.

"Walk on water is just attractive", tweeted one fan.

The Rick Rubin-produced track begins with Beyoncé singing over a sparse piano riff.

Upon the release of the song, Eminem broke the internet and became the hottest trending topic on Twitter.


"Will this just be another misstep / To tarnish whatever legacy, love or respect I've garnered?" he raps. "/ The rhyme has to be ideal, the delivery flawless", Em raps.

Eminem name-checks legendary late artists including Prince, Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. and declares himself to be in a lesser league.

Taken with Eminem's rapped verses on the same theme, it's a moving single. In "Walk on Water" he directs another jab at President Trump, following his recent and explosive cypher during the 2017 BET Hip-Hop Awards.

Eminem has always been his most accessible when he gets emotional.
