Eminem Gives Reason for Rihanna, Pink Tracks on Recovery Album

Added: 03 June 2010 | Read 454 times

With verification that pop starlets Rihanna and Pink will be appearing on his new album, Eminem has addressed the LP’s direction following his dark themes on last year’s Relapse.

In an interview overseas with Paris’ Skyrock FM, the Detroit emcee explained that the idea to include each singer came to him after finishing his vocals.

“When I did the song that I did with Pink I laid my parts first and kind of heard her on the record,” Eminem revealed. “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 is one of those tracks that I felt only she could pull it off.”

Throughout his career, Eminem has parodied many pop artists, including Michael Jackson, Madonna (“Just Lose It”), Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera (“The Real Slim Shady”), and Mariah Carey (“Superman,” “Jimmy Crack Corn,” “Bagpipes from Baghdad,” and “The Warning”).

His last high-profile collaboration with a pop singer was with Dido for “Stan,” the critically-acclaimed third single off 2000’s multi-platinum Marshall Mathers LP.

Regarding the direction of the new Recovery tracks, Eminem remained tight-lipped but assured fans they will make artistic sense once heard.

“Both of the records, I guess you just got to hear them to know what they are,” he said.

The only rapper featured on the album is Lil Wayne, who last collaborated with Eminem on his own “Drop the World” and Drake’s “Forever” single.

Eminem praised Wayne’s recent work, and acknowledged him as one of Hip-Hop’s elite emcees.

“I’ve always respected what Wayne does,” Eminem stated. “Wayne to me is one of the greatest in the game right now.”

Eminem’s Recovery will be released on June 22.
