Fans all saying the same thing as Eminem announces new music 'out now'

Fans all saying the same thing as Eminem announces new music 'out now'

Everyone felt the same way after the 'news'.

It's news that millions of people have been waiting to hear for what seems like the longest time.

Eminem, who is widely considered as one of the best rappers of all time and one of the best-selling artists of all time with over 220 million records, posted a highly anticipated announcement this morning (1 April).

His announcement on Monday morning came after news that he reportedly has a personal documentary coming out soon, and after Dr. Dre announced on the Jimmy Kimmel show that Mathers has 'something big' coming, confirming that an album from the 51-year-old Detroit rapper was coming this year and that Dre himself was a part of this.

So knowing all of this, all 22.1 million of his X (formerly Twitter), fans were sure to have been shocked when his account posted a 39 second video titled 'Out Now', with a fire emoji among others.

Surely it couldn't be already, could it?

The video opens with several comments from fans begging him to drop his long awaited 12th studio album, with his previous one 'Music to Be Murdered By' having been released back in 2020.

A 2000s movie trailer-like voice starts narrating, saying that the artist's 'highly anticipated next studio album' is 'back to where it all started', with airhorns and fake explosions edited into the video.

In an ode to his first ever studio album, titled 'Infinite', the narrator announces that this is called 'Infinite, but now... it's even more... Infinite'.

It's then stated that it's 'out today'.

Now if you haven't heard about this announcement, you'll probably be a bit confused right now because most people would have heard if an album from Slim Shady himself came out today.

Well, that's because it hasn't - check your calendars people.

That's right, Eminem managed to prank his followers into believing, even if just for a second, that his new album is out today, on April Fools' Day.

People do often forget that the rapper is a joker with a great sense of humour, with his cameo in 2014 film The Interview showcasing this.

But this didn't stop fans from sharing their frustration at the situation despite its impeccable comedic timing.

One user commented: "You trolling too hard Marshall… this was just rude."

Another said: "I KNOW this man ain’t playing an April fools joke on us. This ain’t funny Marshall"

A third put: "I literally fell for it when the notification popped on my screen"

A different user posted: "Posting this on April fool's day is the shadiest thing Slim has ever done".

It's just a matter of patience now, if Dr. Dre says it's coming this year then don't worry, it'll come out at some point in the next *checks notes* eight months.

Sorry Shady fans.
