Eminem’s Next Single Will Be the Lil Wayne Collabo ‘No Love’
Eminem‘s ‘Recovery’ hit the double platinum mark in mid-August, becoming the best-selling rap album of the year, after a successful eight-week run on the charts.
The album’s second single ‘Love the Way You Lie’ featuring Rihanna, settled atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart for five consecutive weeks following its debut and now Em is gearing up to release the album’s third single. Shady confirmed to Billboard that the Lil Wayne-featured track ‘No Love’ is set to debut next.
“I did a song with Wayne called ‘Drop the World’ for his [‘Rebirth’] album and we had just agreed to do an even swap,” Eminem said, explaining the origin of the collaboration. “So I wanted him on my album. I kind of waited and when [producer] Just Blaze had finished the beat we jumped on it.”
Eminem is currently preparing to perform with Jay-Z for their September 2 and 3 concerts in Detroit’s Comerica Park followed by September 13 and 14 performances at Yankee Stadium in New York City. “I don’t want to give anything anyway,” Em told Billboard about the show, but he revealed that his performance “will probably be all over the place,” instead of being focused on ‘Recovery.’ “Hopefully it’ll be songs that everyone is familiar with,” he said.
Eminem is also scheduled to perform at the 2010 MTV VMAs on September 12 in Los Angeles.
