Eminem surprised us all when he dropped his new single this past Friday, “Walk On Water,” with none other than Beyonce Knowles!
“Why are expectations so high?/Is it the bar I set, my arms outstretched, but I can’t reach?…I lose my grip like the flying trapeze, Into the dark I plummet…Always in search of the verse I haven’t spit yet, will this step just be another misstep?/To tarnish whatever the legacy or love or respect I’ve garnered/The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless/And it always feels like I’m hitting the mark Till I go sit in the car, listen and pick it apart like, ‘This sh*t is garbage,” the Detroit hero raps on the track.
“I walk on water, but I ain’t no Jesus/I walk on water but only when it freezes,” Bey sings on the chorus. “‘Cause I’m only human, just like you/ Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew/I don’t think you should believe in me the way that you do/Because I’m terrified to let you down.”
