Eminem is looking to debut his lead single from his upcoming album this summer, and he plans on sampling an up and coming British singer by the name of Jamie N Commons.
While Dido may have been known overseas, Eminem sampling her song ‘Thank You’ for his smash hit ‘Stan’ definitely helped her future excel here in the states.
It looks like Eminem is looking to do the same thing on his forthcoming solo album. The Sun reports that Eminem will be sampling British singer Jamie N Commons’ song for the hook of his untitled lead single.
” 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.”
Details are sparse surrounding Em’s upcoming album, but the Shady Records head honcho confirmed last year that he would be dropping a new project for 2013, so it’s just a matter of time.
