Is Eminem's new album slated for a November release?
When it comes to Eminem's new album release date, it seems as if nobody is giving a straight answer. Denaun Porter recently claimed the album was finished, but ultimately professed to be trolling. Still, we know that Em has been working on new music throughout the year, with confirmed collaborations from Dr. Dre & 2 Chainz in the bag. Still, information about the latest from Marshall Mathers has been scare, which is no surprise given Em's inclination toward secrecy. Still, a new rumor has surfaced on HitsDailyDouble, which reveals "very heavy chatter" is claiming that Eminem's new album will be upon us sooner than we think.
In fact, the website claims that Eminem's upcoming project is scheduled for release on November 17th. If that is indeed the case, it will be an absolutely massive fourth quarter, with drops from Sam Smith on November 3rd, Taylor Swift on November 10th, and Em on the following Friday, November 17th. Perhaps Taylor might find herself struggling to hold onto that inevitable number one spot after all, as Eminem has consistently proven to be a sales juggernaut.
While some have been quick to point out the lack of single, remember, this is Eminem we're talking about. Despite whatever you might think about his recent music, Em's name still carries enough weight to pull off a short-notice release. Still, it wouldn't be surprising to see a single drop in the near future. He's reportedly set to appear on an upcoming collaboration with Pink called "Revenge," which is dropping on October 13th; that track could act as a prelude to an actual single, which would naturally drop closer to the album's reported release date.
Either way, the Eminem hype train is beginning to pick up steam. What do ya'll think? Are you still checking for Em's latest?
