Eminem Performs His Next Magic Trick With New Single ‘Houdini’: Stream It Now

Eminem is playing the role of magician, and for his next trick, Slim Shady is kicking off his album rollout with “Houdini.”

Em’s first offering of 2024 doubles as the lead single of The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce) — his 12th studio album. The song hit streaming services on Friday (May 31).

The 51-year-old Rap God announced “Houdini” earlier this week in a clip with some help from renowned magician David Blaine.

In the video, Em hits up Blaine on FaceTime. “Yo, listen, I need your help with something,” he said before showing the magician some love. “Well, first of all, I just want you to know you’re the greatest to ever do it. What I was wondering is, how far can we go with this magic? Can we do a stunt or something?”

Eminem then shocked fans with his next line, which could be hinting at his retirement following The Death of Slim Shady. “Well for my last trick, I’m gonna make my career disappear,” he teased.

The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce) is expected to arrive at some point this summer. The project serves as Em’s first album since 2020’s Music to Be Murdered By, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and earned Eminem his 10th consecutive chart-topper.

Eminem announced plans for the album shortly after his appearance at the 2024 NFL Draft, which happened to be in his hometown of Detroit. He used a clip in the mold of an Unsolved Mysteries episode featuring a cameo from 50 Cent. However, it was actually Dr. Dre who spilled the beans on Em’s next album during a late-night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in March.
