The album's title, which was at the center of an elaborate fake advertising campaign teased by Eminem's manager Paul Rosenberg earlier in the month, could complete Eminem's sequence of albums referencing his admitted struggles with prescription drugs, 2009's "Relapse" and 2010's "Recovery". Eminem has been long deified by his legions of fans, and he received a new surge of attention after releasing a freestyle trashing President Donald Trump.
The medical theme has run throughout Eminem's recent activity. And "Walk on Water" is proof. It's like he's using "Walk on Water" and "Stan" as bookends of an era, a snapshot of an impressive career. "I don't think you should believe in me the way that you do cause I'm terrified to let you down". If "Walk on Water" in any indication, Eminem is about to tell his fans he needs room to breathe.
The Rick Rubin-produced track, which is expected to feature on the rapper's widely anticipated upcoming album, is a low-key piano ballad, with Eminem delivering verses in between choruses that see Beyoncé sing: "I walk on water, but I ain't no Jesus". There are subtle hints all over the site including the phrase "REVIVAL could be music to your ears", and "seek medical attention, "I need a doctor" a possible reference to Eminem's song with Dr. Dre.
