Pink recruits Marshall Mathers for her latest single, produced by DJ Khalil. The singers sixth studio LP “The Truth About Love” hits stores and iTunes next week September
After assisting with Eminem’s “Recovery,” P!nk has re-upped with the hip-hop veteran for “Here Comes The Weekend,” a track off her forthcoming sixth album “The Truth About Love.” The song hit the Web on Wednesday (Sept. 12), six days before P!nk’s latest full-length is released and three whole days before the actual weekend.
Produced by DJ Khalil and Chin Injeti, “Here Comes The Weekend” channels P!nk’s punk-pop attitude into a chunky guitar line and cymbal-heavy percussion that support the sneering, carefree hooks. Em appears for the first time near the three-minute mark of the track, curiously rattling off multiple name-checks to Sean Combs, such as, “I’ma run the city tonight when I hit it I might/Act like a frickin’ idiot, Diddy mixed with a medieval knight.”
P!nk appeared on “Won’t Back Down,” the fourth track on Eminem’s “Recovery,” which was the best-selling album of 2010. The track, also produced by DJ Khalil, led to a handshake deal between the two superstars: in exchange for the “Won’t Back Down” hook, Eminem would appear on P!nk’s next full-length.
