EMINEM 'Beautiful' [Release Date 03/08/09]
C5: Following the massive success of 'We Made You', Eminem releases his anthemic new single 'Beautiful' on 3rd August. 'Beautiful' is taken from Eminem's critically acclaimed No. 1 album, 'Relapse'. The album has sold over a million copies since its release last month and is the fastest selling album in the UK this year. 'Beautiful' is in the mould of 'Stan', 'The Way I Am' and 'Toy Soldiers', where Eminem tells a story in his brutal and honest confessional style – one of the reasons why he has been called the greatest lyricist of his generation. Eminem started writing the song when he was in rehab going through detox. "It brings me back to a time when I was really depressed and down," he says. "But at the same time it reminds me of what that space is like and what never to go back to. There is a lot of honesty in that song that I wouldn't want to just throw away."
