Eminem drops video for new single ‘Houdini’

Less than a month after announcing his next album “The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce),” Eminem has dropped its first single, “Houdini.”  Em, 51, announced The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce) with a Detroit Murder Files crime show teaser that aired during the NFL Draft; and earlier this month, he placed a fake obituary in the Detroit Free Press to say ‘goodbye’ to Slim Shady, his alter ego.  The rapper has yet to share a release date for the album, but it is expected to debut this summer.

Eminem had announced the arrival of ‘Houdini’ in a video clip on Instagram last week, captioned “Please do not try this at home. Or anywhere else. ” Eminem was shown FaceTiming with magician David Blaine and asks him for help, saying “I was wondering, how far can we go with this magic? Like, can we do like a stunt or something?” After Blaine drinks a glass of wine and proceeds to bite off the rim of the glass, Em ends the FaceTime with: “Well for my last trick, I’m going to make my career disappear.”

‘Houdini’ arrived alongside an accompanying music video, which sees Eminem receiving a call from Dr. Dre who shows him that a portal from 2002 has opened in the city. Eminem takes on his younger self as he raps about “the days of old me” and what his 20-something self would think of the present day. The video also features cameos by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Snoop Dogg, Shane Gillis, Pete Davidson and more.
