Eminem’s first single off his highly-anticipated album Revival, “Walk On Water” featuring Beyoncé, has peaked at #1 on the R&B/Hip Hop Single Sales charts this week. The Rick Rubin and Skylar Gray-produced record sold 64,460 in pure digital downloads.
Working with Bey was ultimately on Em’s wish list and he admits to feeling the pressure of making something perfect for the Houston musician.
First of all, Beyoncé is amazing,” Eminem acknowledged this during an interview on Shade45.
“It’s been on my wishlist for a long time, but I never really had a song that I felt would be right to present to her. I was kind of waiting and then me and Paul kicked the idea around after I finished it. Based off what it was about, I felt like she probably could relate to this, too.”
