Eminem’s ‘Revival’ Album Gets an Official Release Date
After weeks of speculation, Eminem's upcoming album, Revival, finally has a release date.
On Tuesday afternoon (Nov. 28), Dr. Dre, Em's longtime collaborator, shared a video on Twitter, which revealed the project will arrive on Dec. 15. Keeping up with the prescription drug theme, the visual features a man revealing that Revival isn't actually a drug; instead it's the name of Eminem's next album.
Earlier this month, while appearing on Shade 45, Eminem revealed Rick Rubin and Dr. Dre both had a hand in his album, saying Rubin produced "three or four" songs, while Dre "mixed a few records." The rapper also spoke about his latest single, "Walk on Water," sharing that he always wanted to work with Beyoncé but felt he never had the right material for her.
"Everything she does is so perfect," he revealed. "But the pressures behind that, for her to do it so perfect—I felt like she could probably relate to that."
Em also took a shot at fans who continue to wish for the rapper to go back to his old Slim Shady sound, rapping a few bars with his classic Shady voice. He added, "I really love it when people go, 'Hey, you know, Slim Shady, Eminem and Marshall, like, they're really different, like, which one are you on this album?'" Em then agreed when Rosenberg called it "a dumb question at this point."
Last week, it was rumored Revival was set for a Dec. 8 release after Universal Music Group moved around its release schedule.
