    it's just so god awfully mixed. the production on Phenomenal is literal pots and pans. Clear Alex da Kidd influence on that one. and the Liz parts are a--- water.

    I'm down for some of the flows and a good portion of the final verse but in retrospect it's way too messy. Nowadays I'd probably put it near the bottom of his discog with the likes of Right For Me. I love KND though

    I don’t care who’s irrelevant . I want the song to be good . Doesn’t matter who on it or what their current status is

    Yeah who cares if Ceelo is relevant or not. I think Em just grabbed him for the track because he likes him.

    Nah, but the hook was a mess. It was like playing two songs at the same time.

    Eminem fans are so weird…

    just in the last few years Cee-Lo has been on albums by Nipsey, Offset, Nas, Earthgang, Tyler the Creator, Royce… he brings a unique sound and vibe to the records he’s on and I’m sure that’s why he’s on this

    When is this song being released? Odd for Em to post it and not have a plan thereafter for release.

    So many people drop songs just for a soundtrack...why does everyone assume Eminem has some grand f---ing master plan all the time, only to be let down over and over and over.

    Expanded TES and a single, keeps his name out there.

    Em don't drop in the summer no more man. Enjoy the single.


    Mmlp2 , November
    Revival, December (4 year gap...for this turd)
    Kamikaze, end of August (mostly due to above turd)
    Mtbmb , January
    Mtbmb II , December

    4th quarter is critical in the industry and em is usually a guarantee for big #s, they wouldn't just push his s--- out in June.

    The very mainstream-ish Recovery came out in June.

    Comparing talent to relevancy is silly. Ceelo is one of the most talented singers and musicians in music period. I’d rather someone with talent make music than trash thats relevant.

    Kamikaze was a summer release. Em drops his albums when they’re ready.

    On April 25, 2022, it was announced that Doja Cat would contribute an original song for the film, "Vegas". The song incorporates elements from Presley's own songs, such as his cover of Big Mama Thornton's "Hound Dog". It was released as a single on May 6, 2022, ahead of the film's companion soundtrack album, scheduled for release that summer by RCA Records. The album will also feature variations on Presley material by big name artists in a variety of genres and styles.[29] Italian band Måneskin and Kacey Musgraves are also part of the soundtrack with 2 respective cover versions of "If I Can Dream" and "Can't Help Falling in Love".[30][31] On May 23, 2022, rapper Eminem announced on his Instagram that he and CeeLo Green will collaborate on a new track titled "The King and I" which will be produced by Dr. Dre and will appear on the film's soundtrack.[32] The full roster of artists for the soundtrack album was announced the same day with Stevie Nicks, Jack White, Diplo, Swae Lee and many more joining the lineup, along with the film's cast. Austin Butler's renditions of Presley's songs, as well as actual recordings by Presley himself, will also be featured.[33]
