Eminem Unveils New Single ‘Houdini’ Dropping This Friday

Eminem has exciting news for fans eagerly awaiting his new music. Just a few weeks after announcing his upcoming album ‘The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce),’ the rapper has revealed that the first single, ‘Houdini,’ will be released this Friday.

In a recent Instagram post, Eminem shared a FaceTime conversation with renowned magician David Blaine. During the call, Eminem asks Blaine for some magical assistance. “I was wondering, how far can we go with this magic? Like, can we do a stunt or something?” Eminem inquires. Blaine, in his characteristic style, responds by biting off the rim of a wine glass before Eminem quips, “Well for my last trick, I’m going to make my career disappear,” and ends the call.

This intriguing teaser has fans buzzing, though details about Eminem’s 12th studio album remain largely under wraps. ‘Houdini’ will be the album’s first release and a brief snippet of the instrumental can be heard at the end of the Instagram clip.

Earlier this year, Eminem’s longtime collaborator and mentor Dr. Dre shared some insights into the new project. During an appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ in March, Dre mentioned that Eminem was working on a new album and that he had contributed to several tracks. He even mentioned that he was set to hear the album for the first time the day after his TV appearance.

In April, Eminem officially announced ‘The Death of Slim Shady’ with a dramatic teaser during the NFL Draft, styled as a Detroit Murder Files crime show. This month, he continued the theme by placing a mock obituary in the Detroit Free Press, signalling the end of his alter ego, Slim Shady.

With ‘Houdini’ set to drop this Friday, fans won’t have to wait long to hear what Eminem has been working on. Stay tuned for more updates as the release date approaches.
