New York Times has done the review of Jessie Reyez new album (out tomorrow) and there is a little paragraph about the song “Coffin,” which features Eminem.
NY Times writes: She has a guest spot for Eminem, who returned the favor by appearing on the new album as the seething but still attached boyfriend in “Coffin,” a lovers’ quarrel infused with mortality that imagines a coffin “handmade for two.” A picture of it appears on the album cover.
Eminem, who discovered Reyez singing “Gatekeeper” on late-night television, said he admires both her directness and her craftsmanship via phone call with NY Times.
“She sings from her heart. She’s writing about expletive that she’s been through and stuff like that. But it is not easy to do what she does, and she makes it look so easy. She does not sound like anybody. Her style of singing, the way she enunciates her words and everything, she is just naturally dope. It seems like she is not even trying, and she is that good. Her voice and her cadences do not sound like anybody I had ever heard before.” – says Eminem.
