Eminem released his highly anticipated new song "Berzerk" this morning and the reviews have been excellent. The song has already jumped on the iTunes chart ahead of Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus. It is expected to at least debut in the top 5 when Billboard releases their top singles on Wednesday, September 4.
We talked with a rep from Eminem's Interscope label yesterday and they are really excited about the song and album. However, they also told us that negotiations are under way for a massive Eminem performance early next year that will be watched by more than a billion people worldwide. Hmm....that can only mean the Super Bowl Halftime Show. The rep didn't confirm or deny this.
Since 1999, Eminem has been a huge staple on the rap scene. His songs often deal with dark subjects, but a lot of people can identify with them. It will be exciting to see what his set list at the Super Bowl will consist of. As long as it includes "The Real Slim Shady," everything will be fine.
