Listen: Walk on Water - @Eminem & @Beyonce

I must have listened to this song a handful of times every day since it released. I didn't really want to write about it but it's not everyday Eminem and Beyoncé drop new music.

In fact Walk on Water is their first collaboration together period. You haven't lived under a rock you know all about this so I don't talk your ear off. What I even heard is it took a nudge from Hov to get her to sing on this record but the message is so important.

"Cause I'm only human, just like you
Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don't think you should believe in me the way that you do
Cause I'm terrified to let you down"

Yes, Beyhive I'm sorry your Messiah is a human too. Marshall Stans too. Marshall takes us on a trip after the days he washed the blonde dye out and when he left the game for a few years. Em has always been a great storyteller and gives great introspection. This song sounds like a part two to When I'm Gone 12 years later. Just a little less anger. In fact I thought I pressed the wrong button because the music was piano chords and no percussion. Still, both artists floated all over this one. Em's next project is looking more promising than his last two offerings. Listen to walk on water after the break.
