Today in Music: Eminem – Phenomenal [2 June 2015]

Movie poster for 2015 Jake Gyllenhaal boxing drama Southpaw directed by Training Day's Antoine Fuqua

At some point Marshall Mathers, better known as Eminem or Slim Shady, was going to take the lead role in Antoine Fuqua’s 2015 boxing drama “Southpaw”. Instead the role eventually went to Jake Gyllenhaal whose beefed up physique has gotten him the attention his acting rarely does (P.S. He was phenomenal in 2014’s crime thriller “Nightcrawler”).

Wish Eminem took the role. Not that anyone is dying to see him on the big screen again since “8 Mile” (P.S. really great hip hop flick IMHO) or his blink-and-you-miss cameo in 2009’s Judd Apatow dud “Funny People”. Just that it would’ve maybe saved us the atrocity that is this is new track “Phenomenal” from the soundtrack.

If you don’t trust me, hit play below.

Southpaw opens in U.S. cinemas on the 24th of July 2015. A release date for Southpaw in Malaysia and Singapore is unavailable at time of publishing.
