The Pulse is the Uproxx Music guide to the best new albums, mixtapes, and other music releases that matter this week.
Much has been made about Eminem’s new album: Perhaps it’s the “revival” its title claims it to be, or perhaps it’s more of a flop. The tracklist raised eyebrows, the album art is a literal facepalm, and it certainly seems like Eminem is selling out now. The good news is that there are tons of albums being released all the time, and several promising ones came out this week, including the return of N.E.R.D, another feature-heavy hip-hop record, and more.
Eminem – Revival
Revival got off to a weak start with the widely lambasted single “Walk On Water,” which even Beyonce couldn’t save. Still, there are 19 tracks on the record, so there are 18 more chances for Em to prove that he’s more than the flop that heralded his new record.
