Eminem's New Single - "We Made You"

So Eminem's new song and video had their world premieres today. In typical Eminem fashion, it's a wacky song to start off the album. I'm sure the second will be more deep and emotional.

Very mixed reviews so far. I like anything with Eminem though, and I think the video is hilarious, so it gets a thumbs up from me.

This is kinda the music equivalent of those Meet the Spartans and Date Movie kinds of movies. Yeah he does have talent but he kinda like a weird al with references that are way 5 minutes (or more like months) ago. Still an impressive video at least in terms of the many references and set-ups.

I've been a fan of Eminem's stuff, but don't really care for this song at all.

The funniest part of the video is the fact that an Ellen Degeneres Cover Girl commercial follows it.

Re: Eminem's New Single - "We Made You"

I used to love Eminem but I'm not too hot on this song. The voice he's using for most of it, I can't stand. He puts on that cartoon voice and it's annoying as hell. Encore was decent but it felt too loose and jokey - it seems this record very much could be in that vein instead of something like The Marshall Mathers LP. I'll wait until I hear the whole thing to pass judgement (since I liked Crack A Bottle) but this single does not have me excited, at all.

Not bad. The Jessica Simpson stuff was pretty funny.

I usually like Eminem, but I hope I never hear that song or see that video again.

He's alright, if you enjoy hearing Alvin and the Chipmunks singing (c)rap music...

You surmised what it is about this song (and video) that I can't stand. It definitely is like Meet the Spartans. Em is great, but I've hated all of his first singles from albums, save "My Name Is".

I liked the video. It reminded me how much I missed Eminem. Great to see him back in form.

Like the [DRE] beat. Can't wait to hear the rest of the album since it supposed to be mostly all produced DRE.

He's wearing the wrong Cowboys jersey. Romo is not #8.

That was really strange. I'm not sure if I like it yet or not. At least he got Lisa Ann to appear in the video.

I really dug that song & video and can't wait to check out the rest of the album. I like this song much better than that "Crack a Bottle" song that's been playing on the radio quite a bit lately.

Agreed. Never been a big fan of the first single always being the one with the sing song chorus with dozens of pop-culture references. They go from being dated a week after release to being cringeworthy years later. But it's like you just bear with it knowing that the good stuff is just around the corner when the album drops.

Probably for lawsuit purposes I would imagine.

It's okay. I've always liked Eminem. Screw Bill O'Reilly!

Not very good. Like some have expressed, I like the angry Eminem. Hell, I liked Crack A Bottle. This type of rap just doesn't appeal to me though.

I feel like this is the style of music those animatronic animals play in Chuck E Cheese.
