Legendary Pop Star Eminem has teased the release of an upcoming collaboration with CeeLo Green for Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley biopic, Elvis. The legendary rapper announced on Monday in a Twitter post, where he shared a snippet of the track.
In a short clip where the song was revealed to be titled “The King and I,” Austin Butler is playing Elvis as he arrives at a concert where the collaboration between Eminem and Green was played. The latest collaboration adds to a list of partnerships between the duo after the famous 2012 collaboration on Eminem’s Slaughterhouse track, “My Life”.
In the wake of the soon-to-be-released collaboration, Green has expressed his regret at a failed attempt at collaborating with Eminem on a Goodie Mob single called “White Power.” Green explained why it never came to fruition on MTV’s RapFix Live. He had deliberately created a form of controversy around the subject of the collaboration in the media, hoping that the legendary rapper would be tempted to buy into the project quickly. However, the rapper was not moved by the reports, much to Green’s disappointment.
