Hear Eminem Join Jessie Reyez on Album Cut ‘COFFIN’

The song appears on Reyez’s debut LP

Jessie Reyez has dropped her debut album, Before Love Came to Kill Us, and it includes a collaboration with Eminem.

The rapper joins Reyez on “COFFIN,” a slow burning, conflicted love song, which is the only feature on the album. Eminem jumps on a verse midway through the track, spitting, “I’m at the end of my wits, let’s end this/ Then begin again tomorrow/ Fresh start, let you spoil me/ Pledge your loyalty, treat me like a king/ Just to fuck me over royally/ Boy, are we water mixed with oil.”

“So, I’m conflicted,” Reyez wrote on Instagram earlier this month in response to whether she should release the album during the COVID-19 pandemic. “The whole premise of building this album was to make something that made people think about their mortality. Now it seems like a theme song to what’s happening irl.”

She added, “I’ve reached out for advice; the general consensus is ‘drop it.’ I put everything into this, I even pulled it down from the pre order to make changes because I needed to make sure I was passionate and proud of it – not the label, not my managers – me. So I did. If we drop now and the world ends tomorrow, at least my art was authentic.”

Reyez previously paired up with Eminem on “Good Guy,” a single off Kamikaze, in 2018. Reyez’s 2018 EP, Being Human in Public, was nominated at the 62nd Grammy Awards for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
