Earlier today, Eminem unleashed the Beyonce-featured track "Walk On Water", which is the lead single for his November 17th album Revival.
The confessional-ballad-with-a-female-vocalist formula goes back to 'Stan' and Em's been relying on it more and more in his late career.
In his latest effort, he confesses that he's not sure if his bars are still up to speed and is increasingly worried about letting his Stans down.
Did he let them down with "Walk on Water?" Here's how Twitter is reacting.
Eminem and Beyoncé are at very interesting stages in their career's. They are loved by millions yet everything they do is picked apart. It doesn't matter what they do, people will still be pissed. No matter what.— J (@thisisjwest) November 10, 2017

Eminem really dropped a song explaining why he's trash on a trash song. pic.twitter.com/1ihAx4bsM1— Ahmed/HabibiTheBrainHeenan (@big_business_) November 10, 2017
You have no reason not to like the new Eminem song other than the fact that it's not Slim Shady. Artists evolve.. if you like The Marshall Mathers LP then go listen to The Marshall Mathers LP. This new record is for adults 🙄— Dame Rev (@DameRev) November 10, 2017
Beyoncé sounds gorgeous on “Walk On Water” and it’s big that she and Eminem have collaborated. Having said that, probably never listening to this Macklemore sounding song again.— Michael Arceneaux (@youngsinick) November 10, 2017

This is for us Stans. Eminem being real as always. Love this Legend so much.
Eminem said they stripped off his confidence, talked about Proof said "bitch I wrote Stan" said he will wash out blonde...he literally doesn't give a fuck anymore and tired of his haters. EXPECT HIM TO DROP THE MOST CLASSIC ALBUM OF ALL-TIME#EminemIsBack #WalkOnWater #REVIVAL— Shady Times (@SlimShadyTime21) November 10, 2017

Eminem being introspective on this track with Beyonce isn't anything new. What's new about this song is that he's openly admitting that hiphop's criticism of him is legit and has shaken his confidence.
