Everybody was certain Eminem's ninth album Revival was dropping November 17th, which is today. That means it should have hit Apple music at 11 PM East Coast Time last night and then hit more broadly at midnight.
That didn't happen. It doesn't mean the album won't still drop today, as Shady doesn't have to play by the industry norms.
And we'd be surprised if nothing comes at all, given he's doing Saturday Night Live tomorrow.
But for now, his Stans are feeling unfulfilled.
Imagine Eminem going to Shade45 announcing that he scrapped the album, dropping another acapella like Campaign Speech and then he's like "Don't worry, I'm working on a new album, here's something meanwhile" pic.twitter.com/tq3gsr49Mo— Shady Times (@SlimShadyTime21) November 17, 2017

Does no one understand that revival “the album” is the drug? And we are like junkies waiting for our fix? “Him to drop the album” and when we hear it we will feel like we got our fix? He might have us feening linger then we think! #eminem #revival— Walter Malaszuk (@WalterMalaszuk) November 17, 2017
