Eminem’s single “Crack A Bottle” was released in 2009, making it over a decade since the rapper has finally unlocked the Slim Shady vault and released the accompanying music video.
“Crack A Bottle” was the lead single for Eminem’s sixth studio album, Relapse, and it topped the Billboard Hot 100 shortly after its release. The song also featured contributions from Dr. Dre and 50 Cent. Although neither of the artists appears in the music video, each of the scenes captures the spirit and demeanour of the respective verses and rappers, giving the songs a unique atmosphere. The music video for “Crack A Bottle” was released at the same time that Eminem and Shady Records were getting ready to release Curtain Call 2, the second greatest hits collection from the rapper. Curtain Call 2 was released earlier this month.
The music video was released several months after the group performed at the Super Bowl halftime show earlier this year alongside Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Anderson. Em, Dre, and 50 performed alongside Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Anderson.Paak onstage at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. Em was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in May, and he also commemorated the 20th anniversary of his third studio album, 2003’s The Eminem Show, by releasing an enhanced edition of the record. Both of these events took place lately.
