Since the release of his debut album The Slim Shady LP in 1999, he has become the best-selling rap artist in history. And on Monday, Eminem, 49, announced he is releasing a second greatest hits album, Curtain Call 2, which will include one previously unreleased track.
Slim Shady has shared the exciting news on social media that the follow-up to his 2005 compilation album, Curtain Call: The Hits, will be released on August 5th.The upcoming album will feature hits from Eminem’s previous releases, from his 2009 studio album Relapse, including Recovery, Marshall Mathers LP 2, Revival, Kamikaze and Music to be Murdered By.
In addition to selections from his solo albums, it will also feature highlights from side projects, guest appearances and film soundtrack songs.
Eminem’s latest single From the D 2 the LBC featuring Snoop Dogg premiered on June 23 and is the lead single from Curtain Call 2.
The Detroit MC’s June 16 release of The King and I featuring CeeLo Green, which featured on the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic, is also included on Curtain Call 2. Along with the two recently released tracks, the collection will feature one more unreleased track to be revealed in the coming weeks.
Curtain Call 2 comes 12 years after Eminem told VIBE he wasn’t sure “how much longer had in the game.”
The Curtain Call 2 album art revealed by Eminem features a number of things that all hint at his previous projects. Since the album will be a compilation of some of his biggest hits released after 2009, it was pretty easy for fans on Reddit to guess the various easter eggs. Speaking of the fighter jet pictured in the middle left of the cover, this clearly refers to the cover of his 2018 album Kamikaze. The buildings seen directly in the middle below refer to his hometown of Detroit. Therefore, the song “Detroit vs Everybody” is expected to be cut from the album. The main image right in the middle, where Eminem poses with his hands in devilish corners, is related to his The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
Eminem shaking while digging a grave is an ode to his album Music to be Murdered By, while the ghost appearing in the upper right appears to be a reference to his Bad Meets Evil’s Hell: The Sequel CD. The words “Game Over” on the cover could refer to an upcoming diss against rapper The Game. Some on social networks also talked about the numbers on the album cover. While some assumed these were album sales of his earlier projects, they actually turned out to be words like “Bobbs”, “Hellish”. According to multiple reports, the new album will only feature one unreleased song, with the rest of the songs drawn from 2009’s “Relapse,” 2010’s “Recovery,” 2013’s “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” 2013’s “Revival,” and “Kamikaze” from of 2017. “. are from 2018″ and “Music to Be Murdered By” and “Music to Be Murdered By – Side B (Deluxe Edition)” are from 2020.
Hip-hop lovers rushed to Twitter to blast Eminem’s ‘Curtain Call 2’ cover. “Ngl, Eminem’s Curtain Call 2 cover looks stupid,” said one, while another wrote: “What a disappointment. 1 new track. Well not even new. Previously unreleased.” Another chimed in: “I think the album cover is ok. But there’s a bit too much going on. The first one is simple. Eminem took a bow as roses were thrown at his feet. How many songs do you expect from this??” While one user shared: “The original cc cover is getting better and more appropriate but I still don’t understand why on earth they are making a greatest hits album in the streaming era.”
