In the near future, Eminem will release a star-studded anthology of his hit songs.
The 49-year-old rapper shared the tracklist for his upcoming Curtain Call 2 greatest hits album on Instagram on Tuesday. The album, which will be released on August 5, will feature all of Eminem’s top hits from 2009 to the present.
The album Curtain Call 2 is presented as a follow-up to his 2005 greatest hits collection Curtain Call: The Hits, which featured songs from The Slim Shady LP from 1999, The Marshall Mathers LP from 2000, 8 Mile from 2002, The Eminem Show from 2002, and Encore from 2004.
The upcoming 2-disc, 34-track collection includes songs from albums like Relapse from 2009, Recovery from 2010, Hell: The Sequel from 2011 (released under the Bad Meets Evil moniker with rapper Royce da 5’9″), The Marshall Mathers LP 2 from 2017, Kamikaze from 2018, and Music to Get Murdered By from 2020, as well as soundtrack selections from Southpaw from 2015, and Elvis from 2022.
Alongside two new tracks, “The King and I” featuring CeeLo Green from Elvis and “From the D 2 the LBC” featuring Snoop Dogg, Curtain Call 2 includes Eminem’s hit singles such as Rihanna collaborations “Love the Way You Lie” and “The Monster,” “Not Afraid,” “Crack a Bottle” featuring Dr. Dre and 50 Cent, “Walk on Water” featuring Beyoncé and “Kings Never Die” featuring Gwen Stefani.
Tuesday, Eminem posted a video to Instagram with the caption, “#CC2 OFFICIAL TRACKLIST #Relapse #Recovery #MMLP2 #Revival #Kamikaze #MTBMB #MTBMBSIDEB #Southpaw #ShadyXV #HellTheSequel,” revealing the tracklist of the greatest hits album.
The “Crack a Bottle” music video, which was previously unreleased and was shot around the time the No. 1 song was released in 2009, was “Unlocked from the Shady Vault,” according to Eminem through Instagram, only one day before the tracklist announcement.
Announcing Curtain Call 2 through Instagram last month, the renowned rapper wrote, “#CURTAINCALL2 DROPS 8/5 – HIT THE LINK IN BIO FOR ALL DETAILS,” next to its cover art.
The singer of “When I’m Gone” is also teasing a new tune to be revealed in the coming weeks, just when you thought it couldn’t get any better.
A Curtain Call 2 limited edition box set and autographed vinyls will also be offered on Eminem.com for ardent fans.
Eminem revealed that “From the D 2 the LBC” was a reference to the cities that he and Snoop Dogg, 50, had spent their entire careers representing: Long Beach, California, and Detroit, Michigan.
Eminem began the bicoastal hymn by saying, “This probably should have happened a while ago.”
