The rapper Eminem has revealed that his new album “Recovery” will feature collaborations with Pink and Rihanna. He scored a major international success with his last pop collaboration – 2000 single Stan, which featured a sample of Dido’s track “Thank You”.
Eminem, whose latest single is called ‘Not Afraid‘, defended his decision to work with the singers after parodying numerous pop icons throughout his career, including Britney Spears and Michael Jackson.
In an interview with French radio station Skyrock FM, he says, “When I did the song (Won’t Back Down) that I did with Pink I laid my parts first and kind of heard her on the record. I felt like she would smash this record, so I gave her a call and she was with it, so we did it. The other that I did with Rihanna (Love the Way You Lie) is one of those tracks that I felt only she could pull it off. Both of the records, I guess you just got to hear them to know what they are.”
Eminem’s new album Recovery is released June 22.
