First, Eminem opened up his circle of producers to include [article id="1637983"]Just Blaze[/article], [article id="1637164"]Jim Jonsin[/article] and [article id="1638176"]Mobb Deep's Havoc[/article] on his June 22 album, Recovery. Now, the album's track list has arrived via RapRadar.com, and it finds Slim Shady collaborating with a cadre of artists he's never worked with before in his career.
Pink, Rihanna and Kobe, a singer who appeared on Fabolous' last album, highlight the list of guests on Recovery, Em's follow-up to last year's Relapse Lil Wayne is the only other guest who appears on the album. The two lyricists collaborated previously on Wayne's rock-leaning project Rebirth, but they've never traded rhymes with each other on the same song; on "Drop the World," Wayne sings for the most part aided by Auto-Tune, and Eminem delivers a rap verse at the end of the number.
The lead single from Recovery, [article id="1638048"]"Not Afraid,"[/article] premiered a month ago and quickly established that Eminem was back. The track [article id="1638998"]debuted at #1[/article] on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, making the rapper one of only a handful of artists to achieve the feat.
The [article id="1639929"]cover artwork for Recovery[/article] debuted earlier this week on the rapper's website.
