Two albums! Yes, Eminem is coming out two albums this year! Not only is he going to come out with his long awaited album, 'Relapse,' he's going to come out with 'Relapse 2' this year too. The news comes just as Eminem announces that he'll have a new single and video for the new album on April 7. Keep a look out for that as well as for the video to 'Crack A Bottle.' 'Relapse' finally has an album release date, so circle your calendars for this one: May 19. Save your money, listen to the singles, and come May 19, the album will be here, so stay patient.
"A lot of people were expecting Relapse to drop last year," said Eminem. "I was one of them. Then Dre and I went back in the studio in September for a few days, and that turned into six months. We were on such a roll; we wound up with a ton of new music produced by Dre. Putting out Relapse 2 will let everyone get all of the best stuff."
This will be Eminem's first non-greatest hits album since 2004's 'Encore' which sold 5 million copies in the US and 11 million worldwide. The rap superstar has sold over
75 million albums worldwide, more than any other rapper in history. So far, the buzz is huge with his first single 'Crack A Bottle' with 50 Cent and Dr. Dre already going to #1 on the Billboard Charts. Ever since Eminem came back out of hiding late last year with his announcement of the album title and his freestyle called 'I'm Having A Relapse,' the countdown towards the album release has started for many fans.
This definitely proves that while Eminem has been out of the pu
eye for a while, he hasn't stopped working to put out major hits for us this year. Shady Records is definitely going to be active this year, with now two albums from Eminem (I can't stop saying it, two albums!) a possible D12 album, and of course, 50 Cent's long awaited album 'Before I Self-Destruct.' Before you know it, it's going to start sounding a lot like 2003-2004 all over again.
