The bars find Eminem poetically contemplating his own rap mortality. Despite its arrogant-sounding title, the song -co-written with Beyonce and Skylar Grey - is a depressive meditation on trying and failing to meet up to expectations.

The Rick Rubin-produced track begins with Beyoncé singing over a sparse piano riff.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting new music from the rapper, whose last studio album was "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" in 2013. "I will walk on water, but only when it freezes". Take a listen below to the sweet soulful sounds of Beyonce's chorus and the unparalleled mic skills of Eminem. Is it the bar I set? It's like he's using "Walk on Water" and "Stan" as bookends of an era, a snapshot of an impressive career. "The crowd is gone, and it's time to wash out the blonde" he raps, but also counters that mindset with "how do I ever let this mic go without a fight". "Will this step just be another misstep / To tarnish whatever the legacy, love, or respect I've garnered?" The rhyme has to be ideal, the delivery flawless, ' he continues.
