I really could feel it coming.
The Sun reports that Eminem has sampled upcoming British singer Jamie N Commons on his new single, expected to arrive soon. Jamie is a Blues singer who is signed to Alex Da Kid’s KIDinaKORNER imprint so we definitely see the connection. The source tells The Sun:
“The song features the hook of one of Jamie’s tracks and Eminem rapping the verses. It’s scheduled to be Eminem’s big single this summer when he headlines the Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK. Jamie already has a good buzz around him in the music industry but now Eminem’s endorsement of him is a huge deal.”
This situation reminds us of 2000 when Eminem sampled British singer Dido’s little known song ‘Thank You’ on his controversial hit ‘Stan’, which helped kick off Dido’s career in the US. Are you excited for Em’s return?
