Eminem and Lil Wayne Premiere ‘No Love’ Tonight
Going through Eminem‘s blockbuster ‘Recovery’ LP for the first time, it was clear that his Just Blaze-produced collaboration with Lil Wayne was going to become a huge single at some point. Well, it looks like Shady’s camp is thinking that that time is now. A video for ‘No Love’ will premiere tonight on every MTV-oriented channel at exactly 7:56 PM EST. In the meantime, a teaser has been released to keep hungry fans at bay until the full video hits TV and computer screens later this evening.
The song takes a mighty, distinctive sample from Haddaway‘s ‘What Is Love? (Baby Don’t Hurt Me),’ and mixes it with some novel synthesizers and a glossy sheen courtesy of the veteran hit-making producer. ‘No Love’ is actually only the third single for ‘Recovery’ even though the album has been out since June 18. It follows ‘Not Afraid’ and ‘Love The Way You Lie’ — both of which went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for multiple weeks. The album has sold 2.67 million copies and remains the year’s most successful to date.
While it seems like Wayne and Em have appeared on a lot of tracks together, they had actually never collaborated prior to 2009’s ‘Forever’ — a track that also included Drake and Kanye West. Their first appearance as a duo was on ‘Drop the World,’ which was the first single off of Lil Wayne’s much-maligned ‘Rebirth’ rap-rock opus.
