Can you imagine Adele on the verse over Beyonce?
Eminem's long-awaited Revival is finally here and we're sure many of you have had a full listen to the tape that features Ed Sheeran, Kehlani, Alicia Keys and more. One song in particular, "Walk On Water" featuring Beyonce, apparently had a different vision.
Slim Shady's longtime producer Denaun Porter recently chatted with ThisIs50 where he revealed that Beyonce's hook was originally reserved for Adele.
"I think some things happened with her with her voice, and she couldn't do it," he explains. "So it was a thing where we tried that, but then it got to them using Beyoncé. My mind was already there. There's only a couple people that could pull that off."
Not too long ago 2 Chainz posted an Instagram picture seemingly frustrated that he got cut from the final tracklist for Eminem's latest album. The track "Chloraseptic" featuring Phresher, apparently saw 2 Chainz spit a verse for it, but when it came down to the final cut "the hook didn't turn out the way" they planned.
"What happens is, when Em gets locked into a song a certain way, I try not to touch that. I try not to fuck with that... Originally, I wanted to put 2 Chainz on the song. That was my idea... We had 2 Chainz come out, and he was working on the hook. The hook didn't turn out the way we wanted it, but the verse was incredible. But the song kind of leads up to another song, so we didn't want to change the verses that was on the original version. So we did have Phresher do the hook."
As we suspected and as Denaun confirms, "there's another version of the song, and 2 Chainz is on that version." Listen to the full interview below.
