I also expected a banger from them the moment i heard of the collaboration. Beyoncé is the only listenable part of the song tho.
Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.

Eminem’s rapping disappointed me :cry:
I expected more aggression :cry: He sounded like he was holding back

What a terrible collaboration. I hate it. The hook is so repetitive.

It is currently selling on their names alone. Watch it plummet in the next couple of days.

I wonder how radio will react to this release.
Somehow I dont expect it to become a big radio hit. Could be wrong though.

I guess I kinda expected an uptempo but I'm pleasantly surprised by this.

Em's part is delivered well and in contrast to most of his performances. And while I'm not a big Bey fan, I really like how she ran this hook.

Happy.

I expected more on iTunes if I'm being honest - pleased it's #1 in the US but it might get stuck in the UK.

I wanted to like this so much more than I did. Eminems delivery is so slow, the track is pretty dull and Beyonce is playing mother earth as usual.

Love the song. It's refreshing, and a break from mumble rap mess that's plaguing radio. Beyoncé's vocals are immaculate and heavenly vocals,While, Eminem's vulnerability shines through. Everything doesn't have to be a banger or upbeat to sell the duet. It fits perfectly well with the fall/winter season.

It's a good song but I cannot see myself playing it a lot. It needed some extra production as it's too minimalist.

Already five pages? Not bad :o

Anyway, this is a really weak and disappointing comeback for Eminem. I really expected much more from his new track. Beyoncé's part is quite cute.
