Eminem dropped his brand-new single, “Walk On Water,” late last week. Featuring a soaring melodic turn form Beyonce on the chorus, Eminem’s intense, reflective lyrics deal with the immense pressure he feels not only from those in the record business, but from fans as well, to live up to what he thinks are unreasonably high expectations.
On November 12th, Eminem took to the MTV EMA stage to perform the new single without the aid of Queen Bey. Instead, his frequent collaborator Skylar Grey filled in for the female vocal duties on the track. Clad in his traditional hoodie and some white sneakers, a bearded Slim Shady impressed with his rapid-fire delivery and the raw emotion that he was able to channel with his lyrics.
