Fans everywhere have been (im)patiently waiting for Eminem’s new album in 2017. The rapper hasn’t released an album in a decade and Eminem’s upcoming album for 2017 is the only thing fans didn’t get for Christmas. If post-New Year’s gifts were a thing, Eminem’s new album would be the best one. The world is more than ready for Eminem’s new songs, and fans are hoping to expect some new Eminem songs in 2017.
New album releases from feature artists have been rumored for some time now with not much being known. Just recently, Ed Sheeran took to social media to officially announce that he will shortly be releasing new music. Cryptic messages and surprise album drops seem to be the norm, which works from a PR standpoint, but makes the fans anxious. When it comes to Eminem, it’s been awhile since we’ve heard a single from him. Will we finally hear some new Eminem songs in 2017?
Eminem Bashing Donald Trump
According to Business Insider, Eminem teased an album release in 2016, by dropping a “fiery” track in which he raps about then-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. It’s safe to say that the famous rapper isn’t a fan the President-Elect.
The song is called “Campaign Speech” and features complex rhymes and a minimal beat. Eminem called Trump a “loose cannon,” who’s “blunt with his hand on the button,” which is a nod to Trump’s critics who believe he is a threat to the country and, by extension, the world.
Eminem’s Not Pulling Punches
The rapper also mentions George Zimmerman (the man who fatally shot Trayvon Martin) in an orange uniform. Eminem is known for saying what’s on his mind and doesn’t plan on changing anytime soon with his new album. Last year may have been a couple days ago, but there were no shortages of bad news, mainly deaths.
There are Several Stars Rumored to be on the New Album
Eminem’s new album, Roots, will be released sometime this year and famous rappers like Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, Dr. Dre, and Kendrick Lamar are all rumored to be making guest appearances. But they aren’t the only ones expected to be heard on the highly-anticipated album. Both Adele and Madonna are rumored to be featured on the album as well! Those excited for Eminem’s new songs for 2017 might expect to hear more from other pop stars. There have been rumblings that Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus are expected to be on the new album. There’s no confirmation form either camps but it sounds like a great mix.
No word yet on when the album will be released but it’s possible that we can hear it sooner than we hoped.
