Eminem + David Blaine Tease ‘Houdini’ Single: Look + Listen

In an atypical pairing, Eminem has teased his new single with the help of superstar illusionist, David Blaine.

Announcing the name and Friday (5.31) release date for his new single, “Houdini,” on Tuesday (5.28), the musician born Marshall Mathers took to Instagram with a joint video post with the magician.

In the clip, Em calls Blaine on FaceTime to ask for his help with “Yo, listen, I need your help with something.” “Yeah, whatever you need,” Blaine replies. “Well first of all, I just want you to know you’re the greatest to ever do it,” Eminem says, to which Blaine responds: “We should do something together one time.”

After the musician asks “What I was wondering is, how far can we go with this magic? Can we do a stunt or something?” Blaine drinks a glass of red wine before biting into the glass itself.

“Well for my last trick,” Eminem says in response, “I’m gonna make my career disappear.”

“Wait, what?” Blaine says with glass shards still in his mouth, before the screen goes black except for this message: “‘Houdini’ 5.31.24.”

His first in four years, following 2020’s Billboard 200-topping album Music to Be Murdered By, “Houdini” is the lead single from Eminem’s already-announced 11th album, The Death of Slim Shady.

Though the exact release date for The Death of Slim Shady has yet to be confirmed, last month’s promised it would arrive in “summer 2020.”
