Eminem to drop new single Houdini this week

Written by on May 29, 2024

Eminem will release his new single, ‘Houdini’, on Friday (31.05.24).

The rap superstar has been teasing his return and the death of The Real Slim Shady, his stage name, and now he’s seemingly revealed the first track from his new album is days away.

Eminem FaceTimed magician David Blaine in his latest preview clip and asked for his “help with something.”

He said: “I was wondering, how far can we go with this magic? Like, can we do like a stunt or something?”

He continued: “Well for my last trick, I’m going to make my career disappear.”

The 51-year-old star recently took to Instagram to share a video of a text message conversation dated Friday May 31, 12am.

The message was addressed to “all contacts”, and read: “…and for my last trick!”

It’s also thought Eminem’s “last trick” message is yet another nod to the upcoming album being the last for his alter ego.

Last month, the rap icon revealed his forthcoming record is titled ‘The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce)’, and will drop in the summer.

Eminem shared the news as he appeared at the 2024 NFL Draft in his home city of Detroit, Michigan, on April 25th.

Shady appeared with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as they kicked off the Annual Player Selection Meeting.

A trailer circulated of a fake reporter announcing the death of Eminem’s alter ego Slim Shady.

They said: “Through his complex and often-criticised, tongue-twisting rhymes, the blonde anti-hero known as Slim Shady has had no shortage of enemies.”

His rap peer, 50 Cent, said: “He’s not a friend, he’s a psychopath.”

The reporter continued: “The same rude lyrics and controversial antics may have ultimately led to his demise. Join me as we recreate the events that led to the murder of Slim Shady.”

Eminem – whose last album was 2020’s ‘Music to Be Murdered By’ – shared the clip on Instagram along with the album’s title and summer 2024 release window.

In March, Dr. Dre confirmed he has songs on Eminem’s upcoming album.

Speaking on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’, he said: “Let me explain something to you right now.

“Eminem is working on his own album which is coming out this year and I actually talked to him and he said it was OK for me to make that announcement right here on this show.

“I’ve got songs on it and it’s fire. I’m actually going to hear the entire album for the first time tomorrow.

“He holds his music close to his chest, so I haven’t heard everything. I haven’t even heard everything complete that I’ve done, but I’m gonna hear it, and he’s putting out an album this year.”
