The second installment in Eminem’s Curtain Call compilation series is scheduled to arrive this Friday (August 5). The project dubbed “greatest hits collection” will include songs from his last albums and projects, as well as two new songs.
In addition to the already released Snoop Dogg assisted “From The D 2 The LBC,” CC2 will also feature a previously unreleased collaboration between Eminem and 50 Cent.
A Vinyl pre-order page on Target’s website embeds a sticker on the album’s artwork that displays the 2LP set contains two unreleased songs including a song titled “Is This Love (09)” featuring 50 Cent. Fans of the Shady rapper speculate the song was recorded in 2009 due to the “09” in the title. Further speculations suggest the song is from Em’s ‘Relapse’ era and is produced by Dr. Dre.
A leak of the track surfaced online this week and fans are already sharing their thoughts on the collaboration.
“That new Eminem and 50 Cent is crazy good. Need more of that,” one fan wrote.
Another fan said: “I heard the Eminem and 50 Cent track “Is This Love”. The love I felt for this track is crazy. I’m guessing mostly because it gave me the nostalgic Eminem vibes. I don’t know why he didn’t put that track on Relapse! That song is a 10/10!!! Straight fire.”
50 Cent confirmed the collaboration by sharing a screenshot of a blog headline declaring fans excitement for the unreleased single.. “We still have something’s in the vault,” he wrote, adding “new music” followed by a fire emoji.
The original “Curtain Call” arrived in 2005 with hits such as “The Way I Am,” “My Name Is,” and “Without Me.”
