Is Eminem coming up with a third surprise album?
Noted rapper Eminem may well be on his way to drop another album. And since he's into launching surprise ones now, this album or single might also follow that path. This strong rumor was planted when a picture got leaked on social media showing the Lose Yourself singer, with a full beard, in front of a green screen, possibly shooting for a scene.
His last album was 'Music to Be Murdered By'
The last album launched by the 48-year-old was Music to Be Murdered By, which was a surprise drop, his second one of that kind after Kamikaze, a 2018 album. Released in January this year, the album, which was his 11th studio record, scorched the Billboard charts and was eventually certified as Gold. Critics responded to it fondly, praising the improvement from Kamikaze.
'Godzilla' video director Cole Bennett was spotted in Detroit
Rumors of his third possible surprise album gained momentum after director Cole Bennett was spotted in 8 Mile, Detroit. Bennett and Slim Shady had collaborated for Godzilla, a single in Music to Be Murdered By album. So fans quickly concluded that something was definitely up this time. It might be that they are meeting up for some other reason, but excited fans won't listen.
