Eminem New Album Leak — Oops: ‘MMLP2’ Leaks 6 Days Early
Detroit native Eminem is no stranger to making raw, emotive music and this new album is no exception. Known for his controversial lyrics and outlandish music videos, he speaks his mind and delivers effortlessly on a series of strong new tracks.
The beats are all very up-tempo and rock-based — Eminem is definitely channeling his alter-ego Slim Shady and taking things way back to his original, old-school sound that fans have been missing.
We love that Em is not holding anything back on these tracks, and even though many of his lyrics will likely be viewed as controversial, we have to say we wouldn’t want it any other way.
Rihanna & Eminem: ‘Monster’ — Duo Releases Sexy New Song
Before the leak, Eminem released MMPLP2‘s second single, “Monster” featuring Rihanna, on Oct. 28.
The track is less intense than its predecessor, “Bezerk,” but it definitely doesn’t disappoint! And how could it, with Eminem’s old partner in crime Rihanna, 25, glazing the pop-rock track with her sexy vocals?
Eminem gets in touch with his inner self on the song, discussing the pressures of fame. Of course, “Monster” is set to be a huge hit on the charts, repeating the success of his last collaboration with Rihanna.
In 2010, the duo dropped the #1 hit single “Love The way You Lie”, off of Eminem’s seventh studio album Recovery. RiRi also featured Eminem on “Numb”, a track off of her seventh studio album, Unapologetic (2012). They continue to give their fans amazing music, and hopefully, this song won’t be their last together!
