Rapper Eminem released the tracklist last week of his new album, Recovery, which should reach stores on June 18th, 2010.
But what caused uproar among his fans and critics was the announcement of the special guests selected by Eminem for his new studio work. The rapper played in pop and decided to invite Pink and Rihanna, and Lil Wayne (which is in jail since last year for possession of weapons).
In an interview with French radio station Skyrock FM, the rowdy rapper did not like the criticism he received because of the participation of two pop singers on his record and defended his choice, tooth and nail. “Working with them makes perfect sense in the world, when I was recording the music Will not Back Down, I thought that Pink would be a good choice for vocals. Then I called her and she did what she had to. The same thing happened with Rihanna. Before speaking, you need to hear these two songs to understand what and why did the two collaborations make sense.” argued Eminem.
