Rapper Eminem treated fans by dropping his first single Houdini, from the album The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce) on Friday (May 31). The song Houdini has a catchy melody sampled from the 1982 hit song Abracadabra by the Steve Miller Band, along with echoes of Eminem's 2002 mega single Without Me.

Eminem shows off his signature humor and irreverence in Houdini, giving a dynamic performance that transports listeners to both his past and present. The rap legend is at the peak of his game on this song, which features a cameo-filled video that heightens the spectacle. It offers a sardonic yet funny reflection on his life in the '90s in comparison to the modern world.
