Eminem releases “Houdini,” the first single from his upcoming album “The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce),” promising a controversial and nostalgic return.

Eminem released the first single of his upcoming album.

Eminem is offering fans a sneak peek of his upcoming 12th album, “The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce),” set to release this summer, by dropping its first single, “Houdini.”

The track kicks off with a familiar Eminem tactic, featuring his longtime manager Paul Rosenberg expressing his disdain for the new album. Rosenberg remarks, “Hey Em, it’s Paul. I was listening to the album… Good fucking luck, you’re on your own.”

“Houdini” echoes his 2002 hit “Without Me,” starting with the lines, “Guess who’s back, back again / Shady’s back, tell a friend.” Produced by Eminem and Luis Resto, the song incorporates a nod to Steve Miller Band’s “Abracadabra” in the chorus and mentions Megan Thee Stallion’s shooting incident.

Eminem raps, “If I was to ask for Megan Thee Stallion if she would collab with me / Would I really have a shot at a feat? I don’t know, but I’m glad to be, back.”

True to his style, Eminem stirs controversy, addressing transgender individuals, RuPaul, and calling his own children “brats.” He provocatively raps, “Cancel me, what? Okay, that’s it, go ahead Paul, quit / Snake ass prick, you male cross dresser, fake ass bitch / And I’ll probably get shit for that (watch) / But you can all suck my dick, in fact, fuck them/ Fuck Dre, fuck Jimmy, fuck me, fuck you / Fuck my own kids, they’re brats (fuck ’em) / They can screw off, them and you all (yeah) / You too, Paul, got two balls, big as RuPaul’s.”

The music video pays tribute to “Without Me,” with Eminem stepping into a portal back to 2002. The comic strip-style video features appearances from 50 Cent, Pete Davidson, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Alchemist, among others, showcasing both the 2002 and present-day Eminem rapping to “Houdini.”

Details about “The Death of Slim Shady” have been sparse since Eminem’s announcement last month. In March, Dr. Dre mentioned on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” that Eminem was working on a new project and that he had contributed to several tracks. Dre also noted he would hear the album for the first time the following day.

This week, Eminem announced “Houdini” as the first single through an Instagram Reel featuring magician David Blaine. He stated, “For my last trick, I’m going to make my career disappear,” to Blaine.
